I am a new mom struggling to get my baby to fall asleep independently. My little one has gotten used to being rocked or fed to sleep, and as a result, wakes up multiple times during the night looking for the same comfort. I am exhausted and feeling like a failure as a parent.
I have been reading about the importance of self-soothing and want to encourage my baby to learn this skill. What are some techniques or tips that you have used to help your baby self-soothe and fall asleep on their own? I am open to all suggestions and would love to hear about your experiences. Thank you in advance for your help!
