Emma just turned 3 months. I lay her in her crib at bedtime and turn her mobile on and she's usually out within 10 minutes. During the day though she usually falls asleep in her bouncy seat or while nursing.

Ah, angela- you are way ahead of me. Sleep is something Ben is not too interested in lately, and he is only 8 weeks old! We were doing so well too, and then it got all screwe up with the holidays and a tummy bug. I usually nurse him to sleep at night. The day hours are trickier, though. He'll usually fall asleep in his papasan later in the morning after we've gotten up. I am lucky if he takes a nap in the PM. He'll usually fall asleep in his swing or in the car seat if we got out somehere. I know, not the best thing to do, but he hates his crib during the day! He can be totally asleep in my arms or in th bjorn and the minute I set him in the crib, he starts screaming his head off! I guess I have to work on that, huh?

Starting when Ryan was 4 weeks old I developed a routine. I put on his pjs, feed him, change his diaper and then I read two of teh same books each night. I then put him into his crib awake. Some nights I don't hear a peep out of him. Other nights he might cry for maybe 10 minutes and then i don't hear from him until 7-8 hours later. He is now 15 weeks and sleeps from 7:45 until 3:30-4:00. I have this great book t_tled Sleeping Through the Night. I got a lot of great ideas and information from it. One thing that it says is when you put your baby to bed for the night, you should put him in awake. Try to avoid rocking or feeding him to sleep. But then again, I don't think there is a right or wrong way, but I'm happy with the way things are going now. Hope this helps.

HELLO strikes again. Are you always so rude?!!

 

Tell me about it - January 5

Maybe HELLO's new name can be SELF-RIGHTEOUS or RUDE.

 

AutumnsMommy - January 5

Autumn usually falls asleep nursing or cradled in my arms while I walk around. In my opinion, there is nothing wrong with rocking or walking your baby to sleep. So what if your dd is 8 months old?? Your arms will be nice and toned! but usually, Autumn just falls asleep nursing and then I lay her in bed in her sleep positioner...

i've been really lucky. My little guy is 3 months and usually falls asleep on his own. Sometimes he gets a little fussy, and then I do the same as you...the glider is definantly a life saver.
