My son s 5 months old. I've always rocked him to sleep, but I'd like to be able to lay him down and have him fall asleep on his own. How can I make this happen without a lot of trauma and tears for either of us?

Shereen... I can understand ur concern... it's ok for 5 month old babies to work on this trick and it's not too late to get rid of cradle habit... if kid is more than 8 months tat too if they able to sit it wud be good tat they sleep on their own on bed and this is something tat we need to practice them... try for any alternative like making him to sleep on shoulder for a transformation to bed, practice makes perfect... don't worry he will slowly pick-up

you do one thing let ur son to sleep on cradle first and once he get into deep sleep, lift him, put him slowly on bed and put ur hands on @ his stomach or chest gently for his sleep sustainance... this is how I am done to my daughter... she is sleeping peacefully on bed now than sleeping on cradle... Still I get her to cradle first and transfer to bed next... sometimes i make her to be laid on bed aft bf.... hope this helps...

Dharani... make ur son to be very active... give him toys to play for grabbing and to be occupied... if he is very active soon he ll become tired when shows some sign of rubbing eyes or nose... breastfeed him and he will fell asleep for sure.... thing is make him to be occupied stimulates sleepiness... hope this helps
