My youngest daughter keeps crying in the daytime, she doesn’t sleep & she always wants my breast to calm and to sleep…
It is also extremely important to be using white noise in addition to the 5 S’s. To get your daughter accustomed to the white noise & it’s calming attributes, have it playing in the background constantly throughout the day but make sure there are hours where it is not playing so she will be able to differentiate between the ‘time for bed’ and the ‘time for play’, etc.
The CD helps getting babies into a deeper sleep so they don’t wake up with teething, etc. which begins around 4-6 months of age. It is also great as it is extremely portable, individual tracks can be played throughout the night, and it even can be used in the car on trips to the market (many parents rave about the success they have when their baby becomes fussy in the carseat…the CD works to calm them!)
The CD of white noise can also be played on DVD/CD players around the world. Dr. Karp recommends parents use the CD for the first 12 months and many parents find it beneficial for years to come!
- My daughter suddenly bursts into crying that sounds like she is in pain even when she is swaddled. This happens after we use one or all of the 5 S’s….any suggestions?
- My 3-month old son wakes up early from naps and can’t put himself back to sleep. What do I do?
- I used the 5s with my son. He is now 6 months old and I need help teaching him to sleep unswaddled.
- My son is having a growth spurt and is teething, screaming all of the time & moving his arms & legs up and down. It takes forever to calm him unless he is swaddled. What should I do?
- My daughter is 8 months old – Is it time for her to stop swaddling? If so what is the best way to do this without confusing her and losing her routine?
