  • I never had any issues. When they were tired they fell asleep...whenever that was. I didn't enforce a bedtime or naptime until they were around 1. My youngest is 8 months. He either lays his head down where ever he is and goes to sleep or I see he is acting tired and I go put him in his crib and that's usually it. He just falls asleep.

  • We have a bedtime routine, then I lay her in her crib and she goes to sleep.

  • we don't get her to sleep....we get her to wake up. she is a huge sleeper. she sleeps 10 hours straight through the night (since she was a month old) and takes a few 3 hour long naps during the day

  • I played the same music for her eveynight. To this day, she is 8, I can put that music on and she is like "Oh, I am so sleepy."

  • Give them a nice warm bathe and use that Johnson and Johnson baby bathe that has lavender oil in it ; it will put them to sleep

  • same routine and time every night. Bath first, nurse in the dark, hold him in sleeping position, tell him have a good night and I love you, lastly sing a song in very low voice. Put him down when he's half asleep then he sucks on his fingers then falls asleep. My 4 months old usually falls asleep around 8 or 9.
