My 1month old baby always needs someone to rock the nest swing cradle. If disturbed a bit, starts to cry and again he needs to rock. It became a practise and rocking time is more than sleeping time :( what to do to change this habit? suggestions pls

Dear Subha , I am a baby sleep consultant . my advice is to start to avoid rocking your baby to sleep as this has become his sleep habit. practice putting him awake on his bed in day naps .start with one nap at a time .

It's a habit and it needs to be broken. Only patience and perseverance will help. Allow the baby to cry a little and even though it appears to be heart breaking it will need to be done. Give the baby an alternative place to sleep so that the baby has a different environment than the swing.
