Drowsy but awake: Self soothing is a valuable skill that babies learn as newborns, when parents put them down drowsy but awake. When we hold babies until asleep, they associate parent's heartbeat, voice, rocking with sleep. Without those cues they can't fall asleep. Started as newborns, most babies learn to put themselves to sleep in 5-10", older children take longer to learn to self soothe-up to 60". ...Read more
Hotels have cribs: Travelers can ask for a baby crib at hotels. Just check the crib to be sure it is safe. Babies can also sleep in a foldable playpen (be sure the playpen is set up safely, and won't collapse or tangle up the baby).
