Tips for getting baby to sleep

I think sleeping through the night is a very hot topic with your first child. My first child was very difficult to get to sleep at night, but now that I've had four kids, I realize it was actually me that was making it that way. I "sshh'ed" her and did the noise machine, like they say; and swaddle them tight, rock them, don't let them cry or they will have problems when they are 12. By the time I got to my fourth kid, I would feed him, put him in his bed, he would cry a little bit. I would say, "Night, night." It was never really an issue. I think issues of sleep are your own anxieties as a parent that you are going to do damage to your child, when he cries. When, you know, he's three. He's fine. It's really the parent's issue.
