The gradual withdrawal method

The gradual withdrawal method is a commonly used approach to helping babies fall asleep on their own and go back to sleep when they wake in the night. Here's how to put it into practice:

  • Start by comforting your baby in his crib by gently stroking him or speaking to him in a soothing voice.
  • Gradually reduce your physical presence by moving slightly away from your baby's bed over time.
  • This method allows your baby to develop independence in terms of sleep while feeling reassured and safe.


Day/night alternation

Newborns often have difficulty distinguishing between day and night. Here are some tips to help them regulate their sleep schedule:

- During the day, keep ambient lights and noises normal, and actively interact with your baby.

  • At night, reduce stimuli by creating a calm and subdued environment, avoiding games and limiting interactions.
  • This alternation will help your baby understand the difference between day and night, thus making it easier for them to fall asleep and improve their quality of sleep.
