baby sleep alone
When did your baby start to sleep alone in another room? Currently she is on a cot beside my bed and i could attend to her immediately but its affecting my sleep with her constant legs banging against the mattress.
First baby: from birth Second baby: from 3 months (initially, we didn’t want to wake #1 from #2’s crying) but later on, we got air circulators to create more white noise. Haha. And with sleep training, training in baby’s own room was most effective. If your baby’s already more than 2 months old, you can start teaching about self soothing, so it’s better that you take the extra 2-3 minutes to get from your bed to baby’s room, actually:) that gives baby some time alone to learn how to self sooth/entertain.. and that builds on the ability for baby to fall asleep independently or go back to sleep:)Read more
I sleep train after confinement
- Hi there, my 8 months old baby used to sleep on her own in the cot and will fall back to sleep with the pacifier in her mouth if she cries in the middle of the night but recently she rejects the pacifier continues to cry loudly and only stops after I carry her. She falls back to sleep almost immediately if i place her on my bed, but once I place her back to her cot she starts wailing and rejects her pacifier again. Any parents experience this before and what did you do?
I used to sleep with my baby in the cot till she fell asleep and i will creep out after. She will sleep throughout the night on her own. I tried carrying her till she sleeps (deep sleep btw) but SOMEHOW, God knows why, will stiiiiil wake up and cry when i put her in the cot. Sigh. Haha. Cn be pretttty frustrating at times but hey, we mommies cn ONLY, and, finally get our sleep when our kid sleeps. So I guess might as well accompany her inside so she'll feel secure and sleep soundly.Anonymous
- Should i allow my 3 wk old baby sleep alone in his cot and in his own room? Or should a caregiver sleep with him in the same room?Zhi Hui Lim

It depends on individual . I feel sleep training is not necessary so young so i prefer to sleep with my baby in the same room as me so that I can monitor him easily especially when the first few months there is higher risk of SIDS. It is also more convenient for me not to go to another room to check on him.Zhi Hui Lim
