    Well I think all of you could guess mine :blush: Letting Hannah sleep in our arms during the day! Although I do love spending the time with her, it's proving to be a very hard habit to break

    Until the last week or so, Katie went to sleep on her own. Because she is teething and got her injections, I've been carrying her in my arms and rocking her to sleep before bedtime. Hope I don't have to do this every night!:hissy:

    Great thread leeanne! I look forward to hearing ppls responses so I know what not to do, lol.
    I am with your mamfy, Savannah doesn't have a dummy (actually last time she had one it made her throw up), and goes to sleep in her bassinette by herself. So far so good but it's still very early days

    Jayce is the same way... But Willaim, OH MAN, Willaim thinks he runs this household, no joke... He was my first and I think I may have spoiled him a bit, or ALOT too much!!
    There are a few bad habits, one is him getting to watch a movie in his bed everynight when he goes to bed, another is thinking he gets a toy everytime we go to a store, or a treat everytime we stop at the gas station (those 2 are getting better though, thank god cause my kid has expensive taste, lol) and as a baby he was very clingy and he always wanted to be held, now of course I can't carry him everywhere, but he follows me around the house like a lost puppy, he even tries to follow me to the bathroom...I'm always tripping over him cause he's constantly under my feet!!

    As far as dummy-wise, I took Coltons away at 4 months, and so far so good. We even gave it back to him and he plays with it now.. never sucks on it though-so I guess thats good as he doesn't need it for comfort or anything; although he will chew on it and now it has chew marks all over it! :blush:
    I think Colton's worst is co-sleeping. I love cuddling, really I do. But I feel like it's not so good for him to be so dependent on me for something as easy as going to sleep. And I feel like it will be a pain in the neck a few years from now if he still isn't sleeping on his own.
    The only other one is not letting him play in the floor enough. Since we live with OH's mother he never gets floor time. He has become addicted to being held and has many many days where he just wants to be held constantly (wont even let me go potty). Also, I think it's effected his arm strength and crawling. He's almost 8 months old and isn't even getting on his hands and knees yet and I feel thats my fault :sad1:
    But thats it. I love the little guts out of him! :cloud9:

    LOL At least you can get him to bed. Mine sleeps on the couch. ROFL!

    And the treat thing, oh, yes, going through that one!

    Jayden was very clingy to me up until 6 months ago. They grow out of it hon! Well, he did anyhow. I barely get a goodbye when he goes into his kindergarten class.

    I had the same problem, however I started to let him go to sleep and then put him into his rocker chair on vibrate and he would be in there for hours, however now I also put him on the sofa with a blanket and he then gets used to going sleep n e where :)

    Everytime Toju stirred, cried in pain or immediately he woke up, i'd pick him up. now everytime he wakes up for whatever reason, sometimes when he coughs or a fart wakes him up:dohh:.. he expects me to carry hm for a bit, he just cant go back to sleep on his own if he wakes up for any reason.
