Hey girls, as you might of seen I posted yesterday asking if I should allow Ava to cry at night when I try putting her down for bed and she cries when I set her down but is fine when I pick her up. I came to the conclusion that it's best I pick her up and settle her down rather then let her cry herself to sleep. Anyways I wanted to ask for some tips on soothing a baby to sleep when they are already tired since Ava's problem seems to be she is fighting her sleep. So far I have come up with the following ideas on how to make her feel more comfortable going to bed. Please feel free on adding to the list or telling me some of your ways to get your baby to sleep when they just want to sleep in your arms not their crib. -Swaddling baby in a warm blanket. (It seems to make her feel secure.) -Giving a warm bottle. (The warm milk makes them sleepier.) -Putting soft music on. (It helps calm baby.) -Giving a bath before bed time. (Ava always falls into a deep sleep after a bath.) That's all I have but I'd like some more ideas so she doesn't get bored with it. Thanks!
