Make sure they fall asleep in the same place that they’ll wake up
Let them self settle without you and without the use of any sleeping aides.
I’m currently breaking all of the aforementioned ‘rules’ that nearly every parenting book suggests when getting a baby to sleep. Call me a renegade, see if I care.
I took this photo before I had to get up and get my computer to type this.
Mila is wedged between my laptop, (which is only just resting on my knees – I’ll probably drop it at some point during this post), and my armpit – goodness knows how she’s getting any sleep, maybe she’s got a blocked nose.
I can understand the benefit of all of those things, and I honestly did follow them (for the most part) first time round. But if I put her upstairs with her sister, who is mid-nap herself, she’s just gonna cry and wake her up. So I’m cutting my losses and rebelling against… not really sure who.
Just dropped my laptop.
