I have a few tips that worked for us to get our son to go to sleep in his crib without crying, although we haven't mastered the staying there all night part quite yet. We are not keen on the leaving to cry (Weisbluth - healthy sleep habits, happy child) or controlled crying (Ferber - solve your child's sleep problems) approach so I won't cover that here ...

You have to decide how do you want your baby to go to sleep, considering your needs, your resting, your conscience and practical issues, and then you have to start doing it and stick to it. This interim period is going to be hard and you will consider returning to previous methods. Don't. Just stick to it. After a few days (though the period strongly depends ...

I notice this is an old post but maybe this will get through. Children are and will be very open to the elements of spirit. If they want to know or are talking about spirit visitation tell them the truth. They see and here more than you will ever know. Let them talk to you about it and gently ask details of their experience, assure them it is not something ...

What can I do to as to getting him not to act this way? As a response to the specific situation, there is nothing you can do to make him not act that way.

That is an incredibly common issue. Sleeping location changes are a big deal for infants and toddlers. That's why there are so many "methods" out there for dealing ...

You're right that a stern tone can have an impact on an infant or a toddler. That doesn't necessarily mean it's wrong to use it; but it largely should be used when it's necessary to get their attention. For me, stern tone comes out (intentionally) when they're doing something unsafe, or hurtful to another; the two times I really want them to pay attention. ...

If I understand your question correctly, you are telling him "no" to throwing a fit. when our son starts crying and in my view throwing a fit, we both tell him no or that it's not ok to do that. Babies that are are unable to control their emotions. That takes a lot of front-lobe neural activity which isn't developed yet. Around 15 - 18 months, they ...

I recommend using the swing much less. Once or twice a day, for fun, but not as a way of getting the child to sleep. The child can sleep on a simple bed arrangement set up on the floor or on a low platform if you do not have a crib. I agree with you, six months is too young for the type of discipline your husband would like to apply. Good discipline is ...
