Shh pató how long for?
« on: June 26, 2019, 11:50:08 am »
Hi all. Question on the method of shh pat...

How long do you shh and pat baby until you give up or do you keep going to the point of exhaustion so they fall asleep anyway?

I tried it 2 nights in a row for 30 minutes before I stopped. I get really scared of my little boy getting overtired. He's 12 weeks old. I cannot get him to sleep in his cot for naps. For bedtime I have to get him in a deep sleep then put him down. Trouble with that is it's has to be 9pm. If I try at 7/8 he wakes a couple of times before 9.

Also how many days did you keep trying. I know 2 days is not enough but I panic and think rocking him is fine (its not fine, my back kills!).
