In brief: 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".

In brief: Babies do sleep

Through d night as long as u don't train ur baby to be a night feeder. Feed your baby well every 3 hours during the day, burp after feeding, change diapers and let your baby fall asleep on his own.
Babies may favor certain rhythmic movements, dancing , singing, cuddling etc from different caregiver.Ithis is a no no. I have babies sleeping 8 - 10 hours thru the night.You will have ur life back!

In brief: How old?

In general, change em, feed em, change em again then gently rock em to sleep.
As they get older let them cry a little and learn to settle themselves down.

Most babies will sleep when they have to rest and parents dont have to do anything,i agree feedind changing and keeping the infant comfortable helps them to fall asleep.Some times the babies get crancky due to gas,constipation or colcky pain and need to be held and helped to go to sleep and as they get older it becomes easier
