Be Firm/Consistent: This is always easier advice to give than take, but it will work, and all books on the topic use some permutation of this advice. Put your baby in the crib when they are drowsy but still awake so they associate the crib with falling asleep. They will cry, but will learn to sleep in the crib in 7-10 days.

If after 3 to 4 days of hot soaks, there is no improvement or the pain gets worse or the pimple gets bigger, then see an ENT doctor for I and D of small abscess. ...Read more
