People have existed long enough that pretty much every style of parenting has been tried, IMO. There are pros and cons to each possible style, and NO style of parenting is perfect. Just find what's right for you. That's the best anybody can do.

"Why do children after they grow up and have kids of there own treat their own mother's so bad? Can anybody tell me that" - Betty
Most likely because every generation of women believes that they can do a "better" job at raising their kids than their parents did. The thing that a lot of people don't realize is that it's not our mothers' faults. Life happens. Life sucks. We're all screwed up. Mothers will ALWAYS try to help guide their children, no matter the age. When children grow up, they insist that they don't need such guideance. Often times what BOTH parties fail to understand is that suggestions and advice are just that. Suggestions and advice, not commands.
But that's just what I think.
I know this wont be too helpful, but I have two children. A boy who is 10 and a girl who is 6. Their behavior from 6 months to a year was night and day. One had 8 teeth in by six months the other didn't get their first tooth until 9 mos. One slept through the night beginning at 6 weeks and went to be no problem, the other woke up at least once a night until a year old and needed rocking and cuddleing before being put to bed. One would wake up when taken from the car to the house, the other would sleep through anything. What I am saying is that my two children, both raised similar by me are different. So unless you are asking a specific question, we as mothers can't really give you much advise that will be a fit for your child.

Its normal for your child to go throw teething, and some find it a bit easy like my son.. my 7mth old has two teeth got those at 5mths and is going to get a few more though soon... she crys all the time... and crawling yes she dose that...just tell your child that it not good to do that... and that you love her but not when she crawls you.

Gargi, I breastfed my son who did the same thing but I think the answer I got still applies. I was told not to be concerned (I don't remember the reason for it) and that the fact it was curdled was actually a good sign; it meant he got all the nutrition out of the milk that he needed.

Babies can start to get teeth at 4 months and some don't start until much later, like 9 months. Some babies start crawling at 6 months and some don't crawl at all. My older son barely crawled and that was at 9 months. At 11 months he started to walk. My younger son, did not crawl at all, just dragged himself along the floor. He was walking by a year.
To this day my parents tell me I didn't start walking until I was 15 months. Some toddlers don't perfect walking until they are 2. It really does vary.
