Teaching Babies to Self Soothe When Crying
Some babies are late to learn 'self-soothing' because they are not developmentally ready to take on that responsibility.

Comforting a baby or young child in distress with kindness and patience is a habit that parents develop over time and in many stressful circumstances.
