Three Commonly Asked Questions About Sleep

My 3-week-old son wants to be held all the time. I can't put him down without him crying within a few minutes. He sleeps with me at night, but only naps during the day if someone is holding him.

I have an 8-week-old. Her eating and sleeping habits are all over the map, and everyone keeps telling me to "put her on a schedule." What does that mean and how do I do it?

My daughter is 2-months-old, and I’m wondering if this is too young for her to start sleeping in a crib in her own room. She’s been in ours since we brought her home and she never sleeps through the night without waking at least a couple of times.

I am trying to train my 5-month-old to sleep through the night, but when I let him cry it out, he keeps waking up my 3-year-old. What can I do?

My two-year-old is loved and well cared for by my husband and me. She has not been abused or exposed to violence. So why does she have bad dreams? For some reason my daughter has had three nightmares in the past two months.

My 23-month-old used to be a great sleeper. But since we had a new baby, she has been getting up multiple times a night.
