In brief: Lovingly

Babies are ready for sleep when they become fussy, look away, yawn, or rub eyes.
Hold baby in arms while preparing for sleep and put baby to bed on baby’s back (not on belly, side, or with a bottle propped up) while still somewhat awake. Add soft music, soft voice.

In brief: In his own bed

Rock, read, nurse, then wipe out his mouth with a soft cloth even before teeth erupt.
Put him in his own crib in his own room, drowsy but awake, the same time every night.Stop the bedtime pacifier by 3-4 mos. Healthy 6-mo.-old's don't need a night feed (check with his pede) & become trained night criers if parents even go in & make eye contact with them, trained night feeders if you keep feeding.
