My baby has been a "motion baby" since he was born. The only way I can get him to take a nap or to go to sleep is to swing him or nurse him. He's going to be 9 months in a week, he's 22 pounds, and length, he wears 18 month clothes. Luckily my swing's weight limit is 30 lbs. He naps with the swing on, if the swing stops, 95% of the time he wakes up. When I stayed at a hotel, we didn't bring the swing, so I had to stroll him on our floor several times so he would fall asleep.
Another thing that he needs to fall asleep is the white noise sound of rain. I got that idea from the book called, "Happiest Baby on the Block" and it was a wonderful help during his first months after his birth. The rain noise I use is actually an iPhone app so I can have it anywhere we go, so he can take a nap in the stroller if I'm out and about. Should I worry about weaning my baby from these sleep habits yet? If so, how should I do it?
