...THAT is the question. So there is a lot of discussion about getting a glider (rocking chair) for the nursery to help put the baby to sleep or not to get it. There is a lot in writing (and talking to other moms) from doctors, "experts," etc about perhaps NOT getting one and letting your baby "self-soothe" or put himself to sleep. Some mothers say w/in the first 4 wks their baby learned to put themselves to sleep versus being dependent on the parent rocking them to sleep or feeding them until they went to sleep. Magazines I've read say to do whatever you are doing to get them almost to sleep and then when they are still just a little bit awake put them down so they fall asleep on their own. Otherwise they may wake up as soon as you put them down and it becomes a vicious cycle. Who knows?
So the other option is to wait until after Lil Arroyo comes and see how it goes. He may be able to sleep w/o a glider, who knows? OR, we may be kicking ourselves for not already having one! They are really nice but not super cheap and finding the right one that doesn't look like something you inherited from your granny is another challenge. So, we'll see what we decide to do in the next few months.
