Another Wily Little Squeezer Who Won’t Sleep

A mom writes:
 
My very active, sociable little 7-month-old is adorable in every way, but he is not a great sleeper.  I get the feeling he doesn’t want to miss anything by napping.  It’s been a challenge getting things done, because the little guy NEVER naps.

Rocking him and settling him down has never quite worked.  Just as he starts to relax, he realizes he’s about to fall asleep, and he jerks awake and wants to play some more. 

I decided to try playing BR’s sleep CD for him, which has always worked for me, while rocking him, and, lo and behold, the little live wire fell asleep!!!  I now play the Healthful Sleep CD whenever I need him to nap.  So far, so good, it works like a charm.  I don’t know if it’s because it affects me and I’m holding him, or if it just affects him directly, and I don’t really care.  I can get some laundry and dishes done.  What a thrill!  (sarcasm).
