Use a pacifier. My youngest sister used one and I saw how hard it was when my parents tried to break her of it. And luckily my oldest never used one/refused to take one. My second was another story, however. He was colicky and cranky and even though he was never super attached to the pacifier, there were times when it was the ONLY thing to calm him down.

Co-sleep/bedshare. Never had to consider it with my first, but Abri was totally different. She couldn't lay flat because of the reflux an she wouldn't sleep alone. We took shifts the first few weeks sitting up holding her while she slept, but we had to break down and put her in bed. So much better! I won't start off co-sleeping this time but I won't hesitate to change if it means everyone sleeps better
bedsharing...i used to cringe when i heard other moms do it, especially with newborns...but uhh yeah my son is 15 months old and hasn't slept a single night in his crib lol. i love it though, we both sleep much better. i'm concerned about when #2 gets here but i think i'll just keep her in the bassinet right next to me.
and also watching tv...i knew i'd let him watch tv but not this amount. but seriously sometimes the only way to get something done is to give him a snack or meal in front of the tv just so i can take a shower!
