Do you rock your baby to sleep?
I rock my baby but first I check her diaper to make sure she's clean, nurse her if she's hungry then I gentle rock her side to side while I pace the nursery. Place her in the crib as soon as she starts to fall asleep.
Our little girl has a hard time calming down for sleep even though we do a routine, regular bed time, and diffuse lavender in her room. I have even rubbed lavender oil with coconut oil on her feet. The diffuser has helped her calm a little faster so that is helpful. I rock her until she is relaxed.
I rock her a bit but I make sure she is still awake when I put her down, learning how to soothe themselves to sleep is an important skill.
Yes I agree Selena is still awake when I lay her down but falls asleep within minutes.
