Soothing Your Baby When He Can’t Sleep

Does it seem that your baby will only fall asleep if he is in your arms? One way to soothe your baby to sleep without having to hold him until he falls asleep, is to swaddle him with arms down in a blanket or onesie that has your scent. This will give baby a reminder that you are always with him.

To get your scent on baby’s blanket or clothes, just hold it or wrap it around you for a couple of hours while you watch TV, are on the computer or relaxing.

What tips do you have for a baby who has a hard time sleeping?
