Personally, I think as long as it works, it's ok. I used to love rocking my son to sleep. THe problem was, he got to a point where he would either wake up as soon as I laid him down, or about a half hour later, and I would have to go through the process again. He went through phases where I could rock him to sleep ok, but he would wake up in the night and because he hadn't learned to fall asleep on his own, he wouldn't be able to go back to sleep without me rocking him. It actually got to be VERY frustrating! I was sad when I finally stopped rocking him, but once he learned to go to sleep on his own, everything went much more smoothly. So, yeah, I think the only time it's NOT good is if your child is waking up more frequently and unable to go back to sleep on his own. Otherwise, enjoy it!!!
