Let me show you a technique for how to put a sleeping baby down to sleep, so they don't wake up. Firstly free up the hand from behind your baby's back and then lean all the way over into the crib, holding your baby close to your chest before gently laying them down on the mattress. Leave one hand on baby's tummy and the other on their head, before slowly removing your hand. Apply gentle pressure to the tummy, hover for a while, and then slowly remove this too.
