  • Forum Thread: 6 Months and Still No Schedule!

    As much as i hate to admit it, I rather enjoyed my son's sleeping habbits when he was just born rather than now. Going on 6 months and 12 days, he has decided that he is going to wake up three times every night and cry himself to death. I have no idea if it's because he is bored, or because he...
  • Forum Thread: Sleeping through the night???

    When we first brought my son home, we were amazed to find out that by 9 weeks old, he was already sleeping 12 hours at night. However, it is not always this easy.

  • Forum Thread: Infant massage----have you tried it?

    When I worked in the hospital, we used to teach an infant massage class. Infants and babies of any age respond very well to touch and skin to skin is great for bonding. Infant massage, if done correctly, can relax and even soothe a cranky baby. I generally try to massage my babies after...
  • Forum Thread: My Baby looks everywhere except at me or my wife.

    My Son is just 5 weeks old. And I realize that each Baby is different. But when we are feeding him, actually any time that we're around him, he'll only look at us briefly. We'll talk to him, mimic his "cooing" noises, and even though we do all of this it seems like he could care...
