I say if rocking him helps him, then rock him. If you have the time, then by all means enjoy it with him, it goes by so fast. On the other hand, I rock and sing to both my kids on nights like these where all they wanna do is scream or whine or throw fits after I put them to bed. Now both of my kids go to bed around 8 every night, even on weekends, and 9 out of 10 times they stay in bed and do not get up until the next morning. I'm a single mom too, so having the time for both has been tough, but we make it.

I'm having the exact same problem with my 7 month old son! I feel so guilty leaving him scream, i just cant do it. Nothing helps expect to hold him until he falls asleep. Ive tried everything the drs have told me, and ive tried everything they told me not to! At the end of the day, as long as he's getting some sleep - who cares. He'll grow out of it eventually. And until then, I get to hold him and cherish him.

How old is your son? My daughter is 6.5 years old and I still rock sometimes. Maybe you could try to sit in room with him until he sleeps? Not holding just setting in the room.
