Getting into bad habits

Postby NeedSomeHelp » Sun 23 Jan, 2011 3:57 pm

Hi there

I have a six week old and I am really worried that we are getting into some bad habits. The first 4 weeks of her life she was a really good sleeper and went to sleep by herself, no worries. In the last two weeks or so she has been crying a lot every evening, from about 4pm till 7pm or so. During these times and often other times in the day I find that they only way I can get her to go to sleep is in my arms. I did this with my 2 year old and it ended up being a really bad habit, we had to come to Ngala to get him out of it after a year of no sleep, so I am really worried to be going down the same path again. Please help, what should I do!?!
