Sorry to hijak the thread Katy but I have one more question if you don't mind! What if ds is laying there crying and not standing? Do I go in and just say our sleepy phrase and WO?!?!? Is it ok to say shh for a second and rub his back for a couple seconds or should I just use my voice and not touch?
Technically you WI say phrase, WO - if LO is trying to settle rather than crying properly I would listen before racing back in too. But this doesn't work for all and some LOs respond better with a back rub, touching, shhh, or having their lovey given back if they are throwing it around the cot in anger (this was my child
Ideally min interaction you think is required is best IMO, otherwise you can get caught in there.
