Is my baby ready to sleep independently?

Updated: Apr 14, 2020

There are noticable signs to look for that your baby is ready to begin falling asleep on her own.

This will happen when baby is 4-5 months old. In older babies, helping actually makes their sleep worse.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Limiting associations and choosing a gentle sleep method can help pass the baton of falling asleep to your little babe.

  • A great start is putting your baby down drowsy but awake.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Next, always have a plan of how you will respond to baby. The middle of the night is not the right time to choose a new strategy!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Be on the same page as your partner. Tension can form when making decisions while exhausted so work as a team!

  • Be consistent!
