Stardate 60948.02 - Getting a Baby to Sleep

Article on this very subject in today's New York Times. An oversimplification of the positions is that Attachment Parenting is co-sleeping and Cry-it-Out is put your baby in the crib when it is bedtime and don't go back in until morning, no matter how much he/she screems (unless the baby is in physical distress). That is a way, way, way oversimplification of the approaches and I think everyone agrees that a single approach does not work for every child.

Read the article - the findings are that a scheduled routine is most important.

Registration required? What kind of crap is that. Some post a summary somewhere that I can actually read.
