03. Give Your Baby a Chance to Fall Asleep on their Own
It is important to a baby’s development that they learn to fall asleep of their own accord. One way to initiate this is to put your child into the crib or bassinet when they are sleepy, but not yet sleeping. Leave the room and let them fall asleep on their own. This way, there will be no dependence on you for them to fall asleep, and they will more easily return to sleep without waking you if they wake in the night.
