OK here is what works for us. And yes it is true that sleep begets sleeps so the better they sleep during the day the b etter they sleep at night, too.
- Happiest Baby On The Block, use the 5 techiniques in there. The main one that works for us is the SHHHHH SHHHH SHHHHing and then the movement with the head also. I also hold her hands since she hates the swaddle and sometimes use a pacifier just to get her to doze off then I take it out.
- Bouncing, you can also use the bed to sit and bounce on, while patting her back, tummy to tummy.
- White noise. The vacuum REALLY works for us. Then we have a humidifier and a sound machine that we leave on all the time while she sleeps. The vacuum just helps get her to sleep. But now that I have an MP3 of that noise we are using it more often to drown out 2 year old noise while she is sleeping in our room and I'm playing with him in the living room. I found a website yesterday that has free white noise MP3's if anyone wants it.
