Getting your baby to sleep can be a tricky thing. There are many techniques parents try from rocking their babies gently, nursing, to using music — my wife and I have tried them all with differing levels of success depending on the evening and Chaim Yosef’s particular mood at the time. Some evenings he is more receptive to the rocking. Others, nursing is all that it takes to do the trick. This was all changed after recent events — he more or less has been going to sleep on his own since the events that led to one of the most difficult things I ever had to do.
