Baby 6+ Months Old? Time to Self-Soothe!

In fact, waking up in the middle of the night is the most common concern that parents of infants report to pediatricians. Now, a new study from Temple psychology professor Marsha Weinraub gives parents some scientific facts to help with that decision.

The study, published in Developmental Psychology, supports the idea that a majority of infants (over 6 months old) are best left to self-soothe and fall back to sleep on their own.

How do you help baby sooth him/herself back to sleep?
