A. actually only time will solve this issue. now my son is 1 year and 7 months. actually I made him sleep in bed at night next to me and morning time in cradle. slowly he got used to sleeping in bed and he enjoys a lot in bed doing somersault now. I know it's frustrating now but ur situation will resolve. jus make Ur son sleep however he is comfortable he is very small and needs to be comfortable now but at the same time start the changes slowly. he won't get accustomed to the new pattern easily. even am thinking to stop cradle slowly but it's comfortable for me and also him. I can do house chores without any fear else he ll be jumping up and down and even fell from bed one day. so take things one at a time. my suggestion is don't start cradle for newborn, if u have started already dont expect things to change as u like and fast

A. hav u tried using a cord to tie the cradle with ur foot or bed and just giv it a tug once in a while. babies in cradle move away to independent single bed lot faster.

A. Yes I can understand its very exhausting but we need to function and take care of baby the next day with full zeal and enthusiasm. First of all google and read about baby sleep. Babies sleep in blocks they cant sleep at a stretch like us and this is needed for brain development. Four month old baby wake time is 1.25-1.75 hrs. So dont overtire the baby by keeping him awake for long. Before putting baby for nap make sure he is well fed and tired also. Maintain a sleep and activity log for the baby and you will be able to get the hang of baby's internal clock in a week. There is lot of research regarding baby sleep and you can read and implement some of the knowledge.

A. thanks ladies. is it too late to start sleep training in bed? will he adapt? it ll be difficult for him to adapt after 6 months right? one more thing , if i keep him awake for a long time in bed trying so that he will sleep on his own, he never sleeps even if he is 200% sleepy. after that when I put him in cradle, he shouts a lot and my mom has to shout on top of his voice to calm him down. also is it ok to make him cry i.e if i never put him in cradle suddenly from 3 days?? if i continue to do that will he be capable to adapt? but am afraid that if i make him cry excessively it ll harm him and later he bcum unconsolable.

A. hi dear..your son is only 4 months and your are taking extra ordinary tensions in your mind.. you are worried about your 4 m son.. just relax..keep your mind d calm..don't be so tense..90% babies having the "quality not to sleep at night".. you just pampered him as much as possible, so Mother feed every 2-2 hr gap.remove your baby cradle in front of you.. so that your mom d be relax and give you space in the room..while sleeping feed him and pampered him.. slowly slowly he is used to you with your cradle habbit then..
