Q: Sometimes I feel the baby flutter and sometimes I don't.  Is this normal?

A: Fetal movements that feel like flutters or tremors are completely normal and do not mean there is anything wrong with the baby, such as seizures. The flutters and tremors that many pregnant women feel are most often associated with the developing nervous system of the baby, and they are usually experienced during the first half of a pregnancy before the baby is big enough to produce a real kick.

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website www.SleepBaby.org - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out!
