Babyfilter: At just over five and a half months, baby machine is starting to try solid foods.

I'm looking for suggestions or anecdotal experience around how to help the little guy out. [more inside]

It's a hard question...

So many great pads available to soften hard mattresses, but nothing seems to go the other direction. What are some creative ways to make our cushy pillowtop mattress firm enough for safe cosleeping with a new baby? [more inside]

New parent - Baby not sleeping at night question

We have a beautiful two week old baby girl. She is very well tempered except at night when we try to go to bed. We have been trying to get her into a routine (bath, story, feeding, bed) but she outright refuses to go to sleep in her crib or in the co-sleeper. The only place she will sleep any amount of time so we can sleep is in between us in bed. This has been really stressful for me an my wife because we are terrified of rolling over onto her or that she will suffocate on the pillows or blankets. During the day she sleeps in the playpen without any issues too. Does anyone have any advise as to how we can get our little angel into her crib and out of our bed? When we do put her down, she wakes up two minutes after you put her down and screams until you come get her. Or is this something that we just need to wait out because she is a new born?
