  • If she isnt hungry, thirsty, or in a dirty diaper...and you know its just because shes tired. Lay her down and let her cry for a bit. She will go to sleep. If she gets too upset go calm her down and let her be again.

    Goos Luck!

  • I remember 1 of mine would be like that. I would lay down with her, hold her firmly and rock her and sing to her. She would eventually relax and fall asleep

  • I just lay my daughter down after feeding, and changing and let her fuss a little, she always goes right down after.

  • If it's being tired like my boy not a fan of napping I would rock him to sleep. Now I lay with him most of the time.

  • Wear her and go about your business. She'll fall asleep on her own, if she wants to, even if you are vacuuming. Use a towel or sheet if you need to.

    Yes, it is safe. No, you won't drop the baby.

  • i personally just lay my son down and he may fuss for a bit but he goes to sleep on his own, thats what im trying to teach him. my first we ran in and held her and coddled her and now at 3 we have the hardest time getting her to go to bed and sleep. not doing that again, as long as they're fed and clean and not in pain (which you'd know) its alright for them to fuss a bit.
