A. plzz don't do that, don't slap. simply isn't a "normal" thing for small humans to do, biologically speaking. In fact, all humans wake slightly many times during the night, as they transition during sleep cycles. So the key is for babies to learn to fall back asleep when they wake, without your help. And that can be done without traumatizing them. You can teach babies to fall asleep without rocking or sucking, without leaving them to cry. This is not an overnight process -- it can take months -- but it does work. And once they know how to fall asleep by themselves (meaning without you giving them a breast, bottle, pacifier or your arms to rock them), they are more likely to be able to put themselves back to sleep at night, rather than asking you for help.  If you'd like to begin developing good sleep habits early, you'll want to start by helping your baby learn to put himself back to sleep. But you need to do this in tiny steps. Here's how.
