Why does my baby resist her crib during naptime?

Why does my baby resist her crib during naptime?

Crib and Nap: You are probably responding to her cries too quickly. It is a learned response for the baby. She cries and you run in. The more she cries, the more you run in. I say, put her down and let her cry for a while. Let her see that she does not always get what she wants with the crying. Otherwise she is simply training you instead of the other way around. ...Read more

She should be fine: but you are right to be careful with a baby. It does not take too much to hurt a baby's brain but it would be obvious. Given that she was laughing and I assume she is fine now.....she will be OK. ...Read more

My husbands cloth smells a bit with cogarettes, i worry because i dry baby cloth  in our small room can this harm baby later ? Baby cloth don't smell.

Husband smoking?: If your husband is smoking around your baby, this is a concern. I don't believe the odor alone is injurious, but i'd like to hear what my colleagues say. The bottom line here is that if your husband is smoking, get him to quit. A premature death due to a preventable cause is the biggest negative impact that smoking has on kids. I know from personal experience. Lgromkomd. ...Read more
