Is there a reason why my baby won’t fall asleep in their cot?
When a baby is in the womb, they are curled up nice and snug, feeling lots of motion and lots of noise, this is all they have ever known. Once they are born, the safest position for a baby to sleep is on their back, some babies cope well with this whereas others do not. We they find that the only way baby will sleep is curled up in our arms, this then becomes a habit and so sleep issues can form. It becomes a circle, you need sleep, baby needs sleep so you cuddle them, they become used to sleeping this way and then they don’t want it any other way.
