STEPS TO HELP BABY SET­TLE TO SLEEP

Mother & Baby (Australia) - - Expert Advice -

“Set up healthy sleep habits to slowly help teach your baby how to self-set­tle over time, such as using the five Ss:

Swad­dling in a nice arms-down swad­dle;

Shush­ing (DIY or try using a baby shusher);

Swing­ing or mo­tion to help set­tle baby;

Suck­ing – which be­fore 12 weeks baby finds ex­tremely com­fort­ing; and

Some hands-on side set­tling – but al­ways mov­ing baby to the back po­si­tion once set­tled or asleep.” Nar­isha Ashelford, cer­ti­fied in­fant & child sleep con­sul­tant [Baby Sleep Con­sul­tant Aus­tralia])
