Bedtime Routine
It must be comforting and predictable, may include books, songs, and their lovey. You need to switch their brain from alert to sleepy. If your child doesn't like part of the routine, such as putting on their pajamas or brushing teeth, do that first & get it over with.
Always put the baby down drowsy but awake. They need to learn how to fall asleep on their own.

In conclusion
Remember to take care of yourself. Review the information as many times as necessary and stick with it. Most children will take a few weeks to sleep train. Patience, consistency, and faith in your abilities to parent are the key!

Good night and sleep tight!!
