I`m struggling to get my son to sleep longer than 45 mins during the day

Hi Maree
I`m struggling to get my 7 week old son to sleep longer than 45 mins during the day each time I put him down. I have a bassinet which rocks, so when he wakes up I rock him, but it doesn`t seem to be doing the trick. When he wakes up he just lies there and doesn`t cry. Any help you can provide would be great.
Many thanks
Sarah

Answer: Hi Sarah,
It sounds like he is now relying on the rocking motion. Take a look at our It`s Time To Sleep settling program it`s all hands on at this age but teaches baby to sleep independently.

Cheers, Maree
