Who am I kidding, I have no idea how to get your child to sleep. I mean, for 4 and half years we have been struggling with our Princess to get her to sleep well. And then, BAM, this week she now is sleeping alone, in her own bed, in her own bedroom!
We are amazed. Truly.
We didn’t do anything different. One night last week, I said, ENOUGH. We can’t all be in the same room. My Little Man is in our room in a co-sleeper so I put my Princess in her bedroom and told her she needed to be a big girl. And she did it.
We tried other times and failed, but this time it worked.
And I am so thankful.
Thank you Lord!
My 5 Tips on How To Get Your Child To Sleep:
- Don’t breastfeed your baby sleep
- Don’t rock your baby to sleep
- Swaddle your baby
- Put your baby to bed awake but sleepy
- Let them learn to soothe themselves to sleep
We made a lot of mistakes with our Princess and we paid the price. She was not a good sleeper and still has her moments of difficulty. So we are happy that our Little Man is sleeping well in his co-sleeper next to mommy.
