Comfort settling, or controlled comforting, is ideal for babies aged 6 months and older. Place your baby into their cot after a cuddle and tell them it's sleep time. Gently pat for a few minutes until they are calm and then leave the room. Stay outside while listening to the pitch and intensity of your baby's cry. Responsive settling is responding to babies' comfort needs while helping them settle and sleep. Responsive settling helps babies feel safe and secure. Settling in arms, hands-on settling and verbal reassurance are ways to settle babies responsively. 

When you put your baby down to sleep if he is unsettled and chatty or even having a little shout, this is perfectly normal and all part of self settling. Don't worry if your baby does this sometimes when you put him down for his nap in the day or for his evening and night sleeps. Swaddling or wrapping your newborn baby can help settle them to sleep and reduce awakenings. Hold your baby in your arms until they fall asleep. Use gentle rhythmic patting, rocking, stroking, talking, or softly singing before putting to bed. This is why many babies find it so easy to sleep in the car or stroller. Using a rocking bassinet, baby hammock or a baby swing are effective

Oftentimes you'll notice your baby is beginning to develop self-soothing behaviors when they start to fall asleep on their own at night, or you'll see signs such as moving their head back and forth, playing with feet/sucking on hands, sucking in general (with or without a pacifier), re-positioning/rolling around. Babies who self-soothe are able to fall back asleep on their own with little or no crying. They may wake, briefly make noise, and then fall back to sleep. Some babies learn to self-soothe naturally as they get older. 

Many parents start noticing their infant demonstrating self-soothing behaviors by 3 to 4 months. By 6 months, most infants are capable of going 8 or more hours without needing a feed in the night, so it's an ideal time to encourage them to self-soothe themselves to sleep and back to sleep if they wake up.So if your baby falls asleep in their cot, they're less likely to be upset when they wake in their cot in the night. This helps them learn to self-soothe. Self-soothing is when your baby can calm down and go to sleep again by themselves.

Babies may cry every time they are put down due to many factors such as separation anxiety, when adjusting to a new crib, or when disturbed from a comfortable position. You can teach them to self-soothe by sticking to a bedtime routine, feeding them before sleep, and soothing them with a massage.

It's absolutely fine to pick up your newborn baby when they cry. It helps your baby feel safe and know that you're nearby. You can't spoil a newborn. If your newborn is crying, it's because they need you to comfort them.
