My youngest daughter keeps crying in the daytime, she doesn’t sleep & she always wants my breast to calm and to sleep…

It is also extremely important to be using white noise in addition to the 5 S’s. To get your daughter accustomed to the white noise & it’s calming attributes, have it playing in the background constantly throughout the day but make sure there are hours where it is not playing so she will be able to differentiate between the ‘time for bed’ and the ‘time for play’, etc.

The CD helps getting babies into a deeper sleep so they don’t wake up with teething, etc. which begins around 4-6 months of age. It is also great as it is extremely portable, individual tracks can be played throughout the night, and it even can be used in the car on trips to the market (many parents rave about the success they have when their baby becomes fussy in the carseat…the CD works to calm them!)

The CD of white noise can also be played on DVD/CD players around the world. Dr. Karp recommends parents use the CD for the first 12 months and many parents find it beneficial for years to come!

    My daughter is 8 months old and I need to pack for sleep, day or night. If you agree to repeat the whole process. The strange thing is that a month ago she slept alone in a crib. Why change the habit? What should I do?

    This questions is about toddlers 4, 5, 6 years old.
    Is it common or physically / mentally healthy for this age of children to be still breastfeeding.
    Sometimes at going-to-sleep-time, our youngest girl (4 yrs old) will try / want to breastfeed to
    go to sleep. We have four children (2 girls & 2 boys)…the boys are older.
    But all four children have done breastfeeding well into 4-5 years old…even 6 years old!!

    Thank You

    Hi Rick,
    That is very uncommon – in our culture or in any culture. Usually 3-4 is the upper range.
    My biggest concern would be if it is a sign that you are having a hard time setting limits.

    All best,

    Dr. Karp
