Tips for Mothers

My baby gets up when I try to put her down!  Am I doing something wrong

Imagine this scenario. Your arms are aching after rocking your wailing infant for what seems like hours, your feet hurt from pacing up and down, your voice is hoarse from singing lullabies. Your baby has finally settled down into a deep slumber. You put her down in her cot. A second later she is restless again and in a minute the wailing has resumed. 

How do I keep my sleeping baby from waking up when I put her down

All mothers go through this nightmare. There are various ways of coping. Wait a good ten minutes after she is deeply asleep before you put her down. Use a higher mattress on the baby cot so that it is easier to transfer the baby from your arms to the cot without disturbing her. Her bed should be made in advance and ensure that the sheets are warm. Cold sheets are uncomfortable and are bound to wake her up. Feed or rock your baby as close to her cot as possible. 

If you are seated, sit in a chair that is easy to get out of. Remember that the baby finds being in your arms a great comfort. If you put her down suddenly and leave her, she feels bereft of contact with you and will begin crying. Keep your hands on her for a little while after you put her down and pat her occasionally if she seems restless.
