i will have to check out the baby whisperer book, thanks to those who recommended it.
it's good to hear that i'm not alone in my imperfect attempts at "routine". for those who tend to wear their babies often, sometimes even during sleeps, what happens if someone else watches them? do the sitters play along?? i can't imagine a sitter (other than my mom) holding my son during his naps! and does anyone have their LO's in daycare or some other form of childcare while they're working? i'm trying to figure out how this whole sleep thing will work once i have to go back to work! i had the luxury of staying at home when my older son was a baby. not so now.
