Hi everyone im new on here im trying to get my 2 month old to self soothe her self at night any ideas ?
It is a never-ending process....unfortunately. It takes months to get a baby to go back to sleep on their own at night and even then there are times when they regress. Just keep trying a little every night and hopefully as she matures she will learn how to get herself back to sleep. Welcome to Strong Moms!
Welcome! As MommyRN4 said, it's a long process at times. A 2 month old really can't self soothe yet. They are still pretty immature and need a lot of help to calm and soothe themselves. Usually infants can't really self soothe until at least 6 months. Until then, night time feedings, snuggles, and swaddling with pacifiers are all things that may help you soothe your baby. Hang in there! It'll get better before you know it.
She did good one night with out wanting a bottle i gave her a pacifier and she went right back to sleep
Great news!! Keep us posted,:) -Jess
she has been doing great wakes up maybe once or twice for a bottle and right back out she goes. or she will fuss some and move and fall back to sleep on her own :-)
