A member asked:

No: Never give your baby anything to try and help them sleep. This is extremely dangerous. Just because something is labeled an herb, or sold in a health food store does not mean that it is safe. It is never advisable under any circumstances to give an infant a sleep aide whether it be by prescription or over the counter.

No: Gender has nothing to do with infant sleep. Bad sleep is usually caused by bad habits. Try to start a bedtime routine early and try to get your baby to fall asleep in the crib, by themselves.

Yes: Unfortunately, cosleeping is a cause of many infant deaths and injuries each year. It is currently not recommended to sleep next to your baby.
