Do any of you moms out there get, well, mad/frustrated at your baby? When my little one fights going to sleep I seem to get soooo frustrated and angry that I just can't deal with it. I KNOW he is tired, yet he fights sleep like he's going to war. What can I do to get him to sleep better/more peacefully/not fuss himself awake??

Frustration comes naturally to a new mom. How old is the baby? You have to have PATIENCE. I know it is much harder said then done. My son was a HORRIBLE sleeper. Even at 4 years old he fights bed time. But I threw in the towel years ago, as long as he was fed and changed I would let him lay in his bed and coo himself to sleep. If he's not fussy or whiny it was fine by me. If he is very fussy, whiny, and crying he could be gassy. Try giving him a warm bath and feel how tight his tummy is for gas. If your feeling overwhelmed and stressed it rubs off on the baby. It sounds funky but it's 100% true. Negative vibes can be a bad thing. Good luck!
