I first want to say thanks to all of you who respond to my posts even though I am not on that much. We are starting to have some issues with LO. She used to love being rocked to sleep and now, even though she is clearly tired she screams and cries when we try to rock her. Sometimes we will lay her in her crib and she plays, rolls around, and fusses a bit. I keep thinking maybe she will just fall asleep, but eventually she will start crying so we go in for her. Here is where my questions are...
1. When we go back in, she bats our hands away and doesn't want binky or bottle. What would you do?
2. We have been picking her up and trying to soothe her, but she isn't easily soothed until we take her to our bed. Do we give up the crib and just stick to co-sleeping?
3. Is it detrimental in some way for her not to learn to sleep on her own? Will this get better as she gets older or are we starting a bad pattern?
4. Is it normal for an almost 7 month old to tantrum?
Thanks more than you know for any wisdom! We are trying to do our best but need to come up with a plan and stick with it for the sanity of our LO.
