When my wife's water broke, minutes after I went to bed back in January of 2002, I remember driving her to the hospital and anguishing over one thought: "I'm never going to be well rested again". If there's one things all new parents wish, it's for a good night's sleep.

Unfortunately, infants sometimes make that impossible. They wake up repeatedly, needing to be fed, changed, and comforted. Eventually, they reach an age when they should sleep through the night. Some don't, though. What to do with them continues to be a topic of a heated debate in parenting circles. That's the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage.
