Does anyone have any hints or suggestions for getting a 2 month old to fall asleep and stay asleep for longer than 30 minutes or so? He eats well but still seems to wake up often. A friend recommended chamomile tea mixed with breast milk, has anyone else tried that? [...]

Hello again. Has anyone had any experience with baby breathing monitors? I am constantly worrying about my little one and I had a friend recommend them to me. When I looked them up, they are quite expensive so I was just wondering if anyone else might have used them and [...]
