Ok first of all I have several things that I need help with:
First off I need to get him to sleep in his room. He doesnt sleep in bed with my dh and I but he sleeps in our bedroom and I want him to start sleeping in his room. I have tried several things but he will not sleep in there. He sleeps maybe and hour tops. I tried having him take naps in there and those arent working either. I dont know what to do. I dont like the crying method because he cries and doesnt stop and he gets all worked up and makes himself sick. So any suggestions are appreciated.
Second off we are leaving for the beach this weekend well September 5th and will be there for 9 days. Any advise from any one whom has taken a 1 year old to the beach before I would love to hear.
Thirdly I am nursing and trying to wean, well he isnt having any of that and now he is rejecting most solid food so that he nurses all the time now and he is right back to being awake every few hours at night because he is starving. I think that he is picking up that mommy is trying to take away the boobie and he is not going to let that happen.
One last thing he is biting, not when he nurses just walks up to you and bites. I have taped him in the mouth and said "no" and even tried "people are not for biting this is" and give him something he can bite but that is not working.
Sorry I am just full of advice that I need. Sorry in advance but I dont know what to do with these issues. I am a first time mother and boy I have never felt so stupid till now.
