I know the thought of doing this night after night can be overwhelming, but i guarantee the long term benefits definitely outweigh the lack of sleep of sleep for a couple weeks. Just think, by a few months old your baby could be sleeping through the night and instead of getting up night after night for months and months, it could be only a few short weeks. At least this is the pep talk I used to give myself in the middle of the night when I was doing this! Make sure you have a cheering section from your hubby, family or friends. This is going to be an exhausting process and you need all the support you can get!Try and stay away from insulting words whenever you are disciplining your child. If you put your child down, it might have a negative effect on his behavior. Use words that will direct him towards different, more adaptive behavior instead.If you can get all of these seven parts sorted, handovers will be something you take in your stride – actually look forward to – and so will your children.Some of the better advice at anything, especially parenting, is to lead by example. If you expect your children to be polite, do so yourself and you will find they follow your example a lot. Children will generally pay a lot more attention to the details of your life than you can of theirs. They aren’t loaded down with the weight of the whole picture yet, and have plenty of time to see that you are.
