Hello my son is 9 months old, he likes to be rocked to sleep. The swing use to do it but hes reached his weight limit for that and trys to get out anyways. Any moms out there who had a swing baby too. BTW he hates sleeping in his crib and tends to fall asleep in his car seat. What should I do or can I but for my spoiled boy?

I am in the same boat as you. My son is soon to be 15 month old. I never tried to teach him to fall asleep on his own because I couldn't tolerate to do the "Crying it out" method. I can't listen to him cry for 30 min or more so I continued to rock him. The good thing is that he is my only child and I am a stay at home mom right now so rocking him doesn't bother me too much. Plus, he tends to fall asleep quickly when he is tired and I just put him in his crib. I would say to you if rocking him is bothering you a lot, you can teach him to learn how to sleep on his own. There are different methods out there and you can choose one that you're ok with. Training baby to sleep on their own can be emotionally challenging for moms but I have to agree, it's worth it.


Good Luck!
