I hear this advice all over the place, but I'm not sure I get it. And how long should I wait before picking her pack up again and resuming activities if she doesn't fall asleep quickly?
For example, I just nursed her to sleep, laid her down, and she woke up. She is still calm and quiet in the room with he sound machine on., but not sleeping. Is 15 minutes a good amount of time to wait if she remains calm but not asleep? Or should it be longer to give her a chance to self soothe?
(Btw, I'm trying to get away from baby wearing for all naps, that's why I am trying this, and I am happy to nurse her to sleep in bed when I can, but it's not always clear when she is going to fall asleep for nursing, so I don't always get to nurse her in bed)
