Re: New Fathers?
To add to what johny footstool said, I've never heard of a baby that "cried itself to death". We were lucky with our first in that by 6 weeks he was a pretty sound sleeper, but even such, there are times he'd be up in the middle of the night and you couldn't figure out a thing in the world to make him happy. Add up a lack of sleep, perhaps outside stressers, etc... its enough to make you lose your mind at times. If you feel yourself slipping toward the edge of fustration, put your kid in the crib until you can gather our senses.
