sleep cycles Rss

my 7 week old is now waking every 40 minutes through the day (end of sleep cycle). i go into his room, pat his chest then leave (he is still awake). this usually gets him to resettle (sometimes i have to repeat this 2-3 times). how long does it take for him to learn to resettle himself? or is he now relying on me patting his chest.

Hi,
The main thing is that he is going to sleep on his own and you are not patting him off to sleep.
It could take up to 3 weeks for a baby to learn to sleep independently using our techniques so this way may take equally as long
