Consistency is so important here!
If your baby is confused as to what to expect around sleep time, you will get way more crying and see little progress.
If you rock him one night and then expect him to go down on his own the next night, you will get more protest. If you expect her to nurse to sleep at bedtime and then fall back sleep on her own during the night, you will get more protest.
If you start the process of “sleep training” and call it quits half way through the night, then you are only teaching your baby to protest even harder the next time you try.
The best advice is to jump in with both feet, make your baby’s sleep a priority for 2 weeks and COMMIT. Within 2 nights of consistency, you will be seeing improvement!
