Quick reference medical handouts used by Pediatric offices


We are having trouble getting our 6 month old to sleep. She seems to be fighting sleep and screams and cries until she finally gives up. The only way to get her to sleep is rock her and she is starting to fight that as well. Do you have any suggestions on getting a baby to go to sleep?
    
Thanks for your question. Six month olds fighting sleep is not uncommon. Life is just so wonderful they don't want to miss a second of it. It's difficult to deal with this problem this young, but you might try anyway. You have already begun a rocking routine. Why don't you do a three part routine, say take the baby for a walk, give the baby a bath, then rock the baby, and do it in the same order each night. The particulars of your routine can vary, but a 30 to 40 minute routine before bed is very helpful in toddlers. 6 months is a little young to try this approach, but if rocking is not working, try it anyway.
