Better You can ask your doctor. But there are montessories, playschools, pre-nurseries which are giving seductives for the crying kids...You can ask with them also.

hi gauri..

Firstly, how are u and ur babies doing. Are u back to work?

Well, abt medicines for sleep. I am really not sure if u shuld go ahead with it. Yes a lot of parents do that so they can have some peace. Infact, i was even aprrehensive abt giving colic aid to my daughter, who is 2 now, as that causes drowsiness. Infact , my ped simply put it, want a good nites sleep..give it to ur child.. very sacastically. Though i longed for some sleep in the first 8-10 months of Anushas life i realised that i wanted a healthy child and not just a lil sleep. Today she is 2 and knock on wood, Sleeps at 9:30 up at 08:00 and sleeps thru the night.
SO i dont think u really need it, all u need is patience.Think about it as an investment towards ur childs future and health. After , i believe, all we can give our children is health : physical, emotional and mental health.

Don' t use it. Don' t even buy it. My son is almost 2. And I can tell you that I have not had ONE NIGHT' S proper sleep in the last 2 years. First, he would wake up for feeds, now he still gets disturbed because of gas or because he feels hot / cold.

But, I' d rather that he is conscious enough to wake me up if he is in pain or uncomfortable, rather than sedating him so I can get a good night' s sleep.

I know it' s tough not getting proper rest, while caring for children and doing work during the day time. But, hang in there. You' ll be proud of the mother you' ve been. Don' t get influenced by your friend.


Even the appetite boosting multi-vitamin drops that the doc prescribes has to be discontinued after a month, so HOW CAN ANYONE GIVE SEDATIVES TO A BABY ???

Dr. Prashant udavant
Had same experience like Reema this week at Sai Children hospital of Dr Prashant udavant.
truly Dr. Prashant is horrible pediatrician, he will leave your child unattended the moment he got opportunity to milk more money from other patient. And there is always chaos at his hospital...... - Ramakant [View Message]
