We put her in a sleeper or a sleep n play zip up thing, my DH swaddles her with an Aden n Anais blanket, we put her in her crib, turn her head to one side, turn the light off, and leave the room. When she is fussy one of us goes in quietly, doesn't turn on lights, just picks her up and sits in the glider and rocks with her till she settles. Sometimes my DH gives her a paci to suck on to help soothe her to sleep.

One thing I think helps is that we either do a bath at night or just start winding down around 7:30pm. More snuggling, go in the sleeping garments, one more bottle that's usually a half ounce more than her normal feed, and we only swaddle for bedtime. I'm not sure if its the routine or she's just one of those good sleeping babies and we just got lucky but it works for us!

And with that I probably just cursed our evening lol
