As we put her in the cot she wakes up

Hi maree, My baby is 10 weeks old. We have had her in her cot for about 2 weeks now, she was sleeping fine and even had 5 nights sleeping right through. But now she will fall asleep and i will put her down but as soon as we put her in the cot she wakes up, over and over again, even when she is so so tired. I was wondering if there was something i can do to help her sleep first time. Its quite tiering after 5 or 6 times.
Thanks for your time Suzie

Answer: Hi Suzie, The problem is she is falling asleep in one place and waking in another and is looking for your comfort again to resettle. She needs to be settled awake into her cot. Try following our It`s Time To Sleep settling program to teach her to sleep independently it`s all hands on and no leaving baby at all. Cheers, Maree
