DH rubs a particular blend of essential oils on DS's feet at bedtime - between the oils and the fact he's getting his feet rubbed, bedtime is much easier and he sleeps better. Can he sleep without it? sure. And he did, each night he was with the IL's (but they took turns co-sleeping also). I don't worry about him becoming dependent on something that's good for him. As for the homeopathics - if he does seem to need *something* to balance him out and make him less restless, and it does really help, I don't see the harm. it would almost be like witholding reflux meds. (it does help, baby does need it, and even if they are dependent on it, so what?)
It's coffee time!
I got maybe 4 hours of sleep (not continuous) yay. I want a nap!
