Mum

Just moved our boy into his own room. He is just over six months old but we are really struggling to settle him. For the first two hours he is crying every 20 minutes. Does anyone have any advice on what to do? We go up and sooth him then put him back in the cot but I am not sure if we are doing the right thing. We're only on night three.

You must be so exhausted, bless you. This is a really challenging time. I still am yet to do this with my third who is eight months old.

But with the other two, I would do what you explain. Keep going in to settle, give cuddles and put them back into the cot. I would do this every couple of minutes and would extend the time each time. I would always go and cuddle and say, 'it's sleepy time'. Everyone has different approaches though.
