"My baby won't sleep!"

I told the peditrician "My baby won't sleep!" She was a caring, kind lady, but she really did not take my lament seriously. But sleep is critical to normal growth and development of that fast-growing brain. My heart aches for each new parent I hear who is desperate over the fact that their baby is not sleeping well. Some laments I chuckle about, such as "My baby sleeps 12 hours at night, but wakes me up every night at 3am, and I can't get her back to sleep for half-an-hour!." Ummmm .... yeah? That's what babies do.
