  • Heh heh heh...time is your cure. You cannot make a baby sleep. They do it when they need to do it.

  • Like sleeping all night? Won't happen.
    Or do you mean that your lo has their days and nights mixed up? If so, then gradually keep them awake more during the day and transition them to night sleeping. Baby steps will get you there.

  • Set up a routine. Something like change,feed,rock,put in bed. Do everything at the same time every night consistantly and eventually baby will fall into the routine and sleep when you put it to bed.

  • At that age either they do or they don't,but if you do find a way let me know cause I'm heading on my 3rd and I can't do the sleep when baby sleeps so I will be tired all the time.
