I have been in this situation plenty of times as a new mom times two (I have twins). I have gotten so frustrated that I woke my fiance up an hour before he had to go to work to take over. One of my daughters would stay up from 12 am to 7 am every night when she turned two months. I tried everything but nothing seemed to sooth her. I started to feel like a failure. I just assumed that because I was her mother, she would automatically calm down in my arms. I learned that was just a myth.
I began to get creative.
When in Doubt, Stroll it Out
This method does not always work and every child is different. If you live in a safe neighborhood, you could try going around your block. This depends on the time of night as well. If you are up to it, you can take your infant for a ride in the car.
This is where routines come in, which I will do a blog on. I learned the hard way. Routines are even more important when you have multiples.
What are some other creative ways you have tried to get your fussy baby to go to sleep? Leave comments and thank you for reading!
