Your baby might seem most lovable when she is asleep. She isn't putting anything dangerous in her mouth, she isn't crying, and she doesn't need you to watch her. It's heaven. Whether your children sleep with you or in a crib or bed, parents tend to have two basic questions: how to get a child to go to sleep in the first place, and how to keep her asleep once she's snoozing. It is the rare one-year-old who sleeps through the night and doesn't wake up even occasionally for a bottle or for comforting.
