How to put my newborn back into the crib without waking them up? It’s a great question!

Updated: Jul 14, 2020

Here is the trick.....

1. When you are holding your baby and they finally close their eyes, you will notice in about 10 min, their breathing pattern will change to a slower and more rhythmic pattern. They are going into a deeper sleep.

2. Wait about 15 min after that and then gently lay them down, they are less likely to wake up at that point.

3.Go relax you’ve earned it!
