    Dance HE'S ASLEEP!

    Advertisements
    Holy crap. For the past 2 hours screaming his little head off...

    I've fed him
    rocked him
    burped him
    fed him again
    rocked him
    burped him
    put him down
    picked him up
    put him in the swing
    bounced him
    shoved the binky in his mouth 70 times
    rocked him in the house
    put him on his belly
    put him on his back
    swaddled him

    And after ALL THAT, I gave him ANOTHER bottle and put him in bed.
    Mainly because I needed to step away for five minutes even though he was quiet from just having a bottle.
    I came back and he was zonked out.

    I might have made it halfway down your list before I just walked away and let lil' babe cry until she fell asleep.

    If I know that I've done *everything* that I can to make her happy/content and she still won't sleep, I'll put her in her room, tell her "it's nap time" and walk away.

    9 times out of 10, she's sound alseep within 5 mins. Sometimes, she cries for that long, other times, she cries for 30 secs. and is out like a light.

    you are doing a great job! Its so hard for them to adjust to being out of mommy. Have you tried reading the happiest baby on the block? If you go on you tube and search for Dr. Karp, you can see his techniques put to use. They work great.
