... they need to be trained to keep it in. It doesn't come naturally, apparently. Just give it a gentle tug a few times... this causes the baby to suck even harder to keep it in. This way they learn to hold it in themselves. ... (17 replies)

... Yeah just take a reallly cool wash cloth, not ice cold, and gently wipe his lil cheeks and forehead with it when he's dozing off, you can also put him in a bath to keep him awake, and put him down on a play mat to play with him and just flick or thump the bottom of his bare feet lightly, just enough to keep him alert. ...

... You definitely need to wake him to nurse every 2 hours!! If the bottles are interfering with this, you need to cut them back. ... (14 replies)

... unny, everytime I think it's been the best month yet with him, it gets better. It's his personality and the things he can do now. Even today he was so grouchy, a monster really, but at the very end he gave me the funniest smile and it made up for it. He can sit for short periods on the floor by himself. ... (27 replies)

... he brought his leg up right under him so his butt was in the air a bit...if he had both legs up he would have had his butt up. I think he is going to crawl sooner than Kierra did, she was a late crawler, I'd have to check her baby book but we were almost sure she'd walk before she crawled. ... (466 replies)
... My daughter is almost 6 weeks and she still hasn't quite got her days and nights straight. I have been trying to keep her awake as much during the day as possible but when she wants to sleep, she wants to sleep and there isn't much I can do to sway her from it. ... (3 replies)
... sually we give him his bottle in the rocking chair while his aquarium plays music. Then once the bottle is done we turn his lamp off and just use the night light to see. Sometimes he's out cold by the end of the bottle and sometimes I need to walk him for a little and even more rare I may have to walk him A LOT! ... (9 replies)
... My son woke up this morning at 4am with his tummy really bothering him. He just needed to fart and poop. But he pooped like all morning it seems like. That and passed gas. It was painful enough to keep him awake. ... (11 replies)
... Hey guys. I know this is a forum for health but maybe someone can help with something not health related. My son is 3 mos. ... (1 replies)
... I go back and forth. Of course I'd rather not have him in a helmet if he doesn't really need it, but if there is a way to make it better while his head is still forming, I don't know. ... (3 replies)
... That may be your problem. You might be waiting too long, which leads to being over tired. I've often read that if you catch them before they get to that point, that it makes things much easier. ... (27 replies)
... Hi guys. Hope everyone is doing good. Im pretty good. My back is still killing me unfortunately. Oh well though. DS has been awake now for a better part of the last 8 hrs. So I think that is part of it too. I forgot how alert a baby can be at this age. Its crazy, but maybe he will sleep more tonight. ... (85 replies)

... WOW BROOKE... This sounds just like my munchkin!!! If you don't remember we spent A LOT of time together talking on the FEB06 Mommies thread and I just had to look you up to see if you were still around... You had another baby? ... (12 replies)
... mo old, so I really can't say much. But from Ferber's descriptions, it may again be a problem of what she expects you to be doing when she's sleeping. He says this is a problem of sleep associations. ... (6 replies)
