    Hi Anastasia,

    Your little one will find it easier to fall asleep using the settling pyramid with less resistance if they’re tired. If you know that your little one typically stays awake for around 60 minutes before needing a nap, and their nap routine takes about 5 minutes, I suggest starting the nap routine after they’ve been awake for 55 minutes. This way, they’ll be in the crib when they’re tired rather than when they’re not, which helps minimise protests.

    As for how long to persist with the settling pyramid, 30 minutes is a reasonable timeframe to attempt before switching to your usual settling method if it’s not working. Babies can sometimes take up to 20 minutes to fall asleep, but if you’ve tried for 30 minutes without success, it’s a good idea to provide comfort and try again later.

    I hope this helps!
