In many of the baby sleep problem cases I have consulted on, the baby wakes during the night and can’t get themselves back to sleep without the assistance of a parent. There are many possible reasons for this like not being able to find their dodi. However, in many cases the baby simply needs reassurance that their parent(s) are there, so reassure them that you are. Let them know that you are in your bedroom not very far away. Obviously this only works for older babies that can understand you. So let them know that if they want to check that you are there they can come into your room and see you are asleep in your bedroom. Your baby may never actually come into your room and see you there but if they do they’ll soon have the reassurance that you’re never to far away and not bother coming in anymore.
