"Make a distinct music mix for each 'act' of your party: cocktails, dinner, and dessert. Upbeat to start, subdued for dinner, and loungy for dessert. Also experiment with music from other cultures. Shop at an Asian market or a yoga store for some unique choices." --Page Marchese Norman, Home Editor

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
