Are you rocking your baby to sleep in a glider or rocking chair?

I don't usually rock Jacob to sleep. On some of our really bad nights, I have sat with him in the rocker. He loves to be rocked.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

Not usually. I have found it makes him vomit even if it's not close to when he ate. Sometimes I rock him very lightly because I can tell he's really tired but won't sleep.

Thanks PrincessMom08 for my wonderful siggy!

I rock Kira to sleep in my arms after our last feeding of the day. She falls asleep more quickly and sleeps more soundly that way. For daytime naps I just set her in the Rock N Play and she rocks herself a little bit.

We don't rock, JR isn't a fan.

Thanks to Claire1979 for the terrific siggy!

No... sometimes I jiggle her or sway while standing, but not for very long. She usually nurses most of the way to sleep and then I put her down.

Liam just goes to sleep on my shoulder or chest when he is tired. He doesnt mind rocking but it doesnt do anything for him. I hope he gets into it though because some of my favorite moments are just sitting and rocking peacefully and i would love to have a ritual of rocking him to sleep.

if he's upset he would much rather bounce than rock or swing
