How to stop rocking the baby. He hates to be picked up
« on: March 29, 2020, 21:21:04 pm »
Bye! Please help me understand. My baby is five months old. He's always slept in his crib. For the 2 naps, he sleeps alone in his crib with his pacifier. For now he takes naps for about 2-3 hours. In the evening he goes to the cradle anyway but he falls asleep with more difficulty and especially if he is very nervous for some reason the only thing that calms him down is to cradle him. He does not want to be taken in his arms at all. I can't do PU/PD. He hates to be held when he is sleepy. I can't find any other way to calm him down. But if I rock him a little bit, he calms down instantly and falls asleep fast enough. Same thing in the morning he wakes up early really and the only thing that can calm him down to sleep 1 or 2 hours more is to rock him. How can I change this habit?
