I think that my 9-month old granddaughter needs more solid foods, and my daughter insists that babies cannot digest food this early. Will more solids help my granddaughter sleep through the night?

Eight Sleep Tips for Every Child
The following ideas are of value to almost any sleeper of any age. These tips can bring improvement not only in your child’s sleep but also in her daytime mood — and last, but not least, improvements in your own sleep and outlook as well.

Nightmares, Night Terrors and Fears
The lack of adequate, restful sleep can affect your child’s mood, behavior, health, memory and growth. If there is anything standing in the way of a good night’s sleep, it’s important to address the issue and solve the problem. Following is a list of typical sleep disrupters and possible solutions.

Moving from Crib to Bed
When your child moves from crib to bed, it’s a milestone in his life as well as yours. There is no precise time for making this move, though typically it’s between the first and third birthday. The key to success is to be patient and allow your child time to adjust to the change.

The Night Visitor: Trips to the Parent’s Bed
If your house echoes with the sound of pat-pat-pat down the hallway when your child leaves his room to climb into your bed in the middle of the night, rest assured that you are not alone. It’s perfectly natural for a toddler or preschooler to search out his parents for comfort and security — it’s a sign of his trust and his deep love for you. And it’s perfectly normal for parents to provide that comfort and security by bringing their child into their bed or by lying with him in his own bed.

What can I give my child when she's had a stressful day, is nervous, fearful, teething, or cannot seem to fall asleep?
Mrs. Rabbit's secret tea is the answer to a multitude of baby and child upsets. Peter Rabbit’s heart went pit-a-pat as he ran from Farmer MacGregor, but his mother knew to calm him with a nice warm cup of chamomile tea. When he couldn’t sleep or had a tummy ache, good old chamomile came to the rescue.

Baby Massage From A-Z
Baby massage has been practiced since ancient times. It can be as simple as a gentle rub with lotion after a bath or a more practiced infant massage. The benefits are many for both baby and parent. You can, and should, massage a child of any age from newborn to adulthood. Children learn much about the power of gentle touch. There's something very special about spending a little time giving your teenager a backrub or foot massage. It maintains a beautiful parent-child connection throughout a lifetime.

My 6-month-old baby wakes up almost every hour to breastfeed.
I want to respond to her cues, and I don't believe in letting her cry. I'm getting so tired that I can barely function during the day. Please, I desperately need some help!

My baby won't nap! She fights sleep but gets fussier and fussier as the day progresses.
It also seems that on days when she doesn't nap, she doesn't sleep well at night either. It's a huge struggle, and I am at my wit's end. How can I get her to nap? Please help!

It takes forever for my baby to fall asleep unless I brestfeed or hold her. I am truly distressed, as the lack of sleep is starting to affect all aspects of my life.
I feel as though I can't carry on an intelligent conversation. I am extremely unorganized and don't have the energy to even attempt reorganization. I love this child more than anything in the world, and I don’t want to make her cry, but I'm near tears myself thinking about going to bed every night. Sometimes I think, “What’s the point? I'll just be up in an hour anyway.” Should I just let her cry it out?

My 18-month-old toddler wakes up twice per night to nurse. We sleep together, and we like it this way.
Many of my family and friends express sheer horror at learning of our situation, though, and my mother swears I will live to regret it. Will I? Am I doing something wrong?

Let Your Sleeping Baby Sleep!
I am a follower of the “never let your baby cry” rule, and I took it very seriously. What I didn’t understand, though, is that babies make sounds in their sleep.

Using White Noise While Babies Sleep
Research indicates that “white noise” or soft bedtime music helps many babies to relax and fall asleep more easily. This is most certainly because these sounds create an environment more familiar to your baby than a very quiet room.

Write a Family Bestseller: “My Sleep Book”
You can use this love of books to help you encourage your baby to sleep through the night. You can do this by writing your baby his own book about sleep.

Why Isn't She Sleeping at Night?
Certainly, if your little one is waking you up every hour or two, you don’t have to think long on the question, “Is this disruptive to me?” It obviously is.
