I have a 4 month old son and in order for him to get to sleep every night my boyfriend and I have to rock him to sleep. He is on a schedule. He gets a warm bath every night at around 8:30pm followed by a massage with baby lotion and a bedtime story. After that in order to get him to go to sleep he depends on his father and I to rock him to sleep. I've read so many different things on how you should put your baby down in his crib while he is still awake but drowsy. But everytime we have done this, he cries non-stop and doesn't fall asleep on his own. I was wondering if anybody had any suggestions as to what we should do.
