Hi, I have a kid who is little more than 1 year. I have great difficulty putting my kid to sleep. This has been happening right from birth. I have heard that kids when put in a swing will fall asleep due to the movement and the soothing breeze. Aslo, some kids fall asleep listening to soft music. I have tried everything, but it takes more than a hour to put my kid to sleep. This happens during the day time as well as in the night. I also feed my kid full stomach still does not sleep faster. Few days I have tried skipping the nap during the daytime, expecting my kid will sleep early in the night. But in vain, except for the tiredness and cranky behavior that sets in by evening. I have checked with my doctor too, but he says do not force the kid to sleep for some kids need only little sleep. Does anybody have any suggestions? Would this kind of behavior result in any illness like loss of weight, etc.? I am worried this should not become a habit of my kid!
