Consistency at Nap Time with NapCap

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

Parents often assume that there is a right and wrong way to soothe a baby to sleep. This is not the case. Falling asleep is simple learned behavior, a habit. Your child will learn best if you are consistent in how you soothe her to sleep for naps. There are two styles. One, at nap time your baby sometimes soothes herself to sleep unassisted. After soothing your baby for several minutes, you ALWAYS put her down to sleep whether or not she is asleep. The soothing is a winding down, a transition from active to quiet, from alert to drowsy. Always use Baby NapCap as your assistant to block out distractions at nap time. Two, your baby always begins naps with your help. You ALWAYS hold and soothe your baby until she is in a deep sleep state, no matter how long it takes. Always use Baby NapCap as your assistant to block out distractions at nap time.
Be decisive; chose soothing style one or two and be consistent. Consistency helps your baby sleep better, because the process of falling asleep is a learned behavior.
