My 4 month old likes to be rocked, i'm scared thats its going to be a problem later. I was woundering if would be hard to break this age.

we also rock our dd to bed and she is 11 months old, I figure whats the harm in spending 10 or 15 minutes quality time with your little one to help them settle in for the night?

I don't mind doing it either and my dd is almost 5 mos old. I used to babysit in high school, and one of the girls I watched was 2 and had to be rocked to sleep - it was very special to have her fall asleep with me and I really want to have my dd do it too :)

My DH is 9 months old and i cherish that bond : ) You are gonna miss those days so rock while you still can !

I agree, they're only little once. Enjoy it! Soon he'll be too big to even fit in your lap! I know, my 1st baby is 8 and I would love to rock her to sleep! :O}

I agree with you...but dont worry, everything will be normal.

Oh i really wanna rock ds but he wont let me, he doesn't sit still and wriggles around everywhere and wants to see everyone and everything...did i mention the boys in dh's side of the family all have ADHD LOL doesn't look too promising!

I still rock my dd- she is 13 mos!! After her bath, we read a book, and then she sits on my lap and we rock until she nods off. I wouldn't trade that time for the world!! Sometimes she turns around and wraps those little arms around my neck and snuggle into my chest- I LOVE IT!!!

I don't see anything wrong with it. Trust me, my oldest is 9 and he won't even let me hug him before the bus anymore, because someone might see - so get it while you can!!!

I am worried about the same thing, I also want it to be easy for our parents and/or babysitter to put her to sleep when we want to go out for a date night. My mom loves to rock and so does my dh's so there's no problem there, they both tell me do it as long as you want, they don't stay little for long and they don't I can not believe my dd is going to be 7 months tomorrow I feel like I just popped her out yesterday. I lvoe her so much and I enjoy that bonding time every night before bedtime but I also don't want to teach her bad habits...
