Q:

my baby will not sleep well. have to swing for half an hour and soon she will get up. please suggest for long time sleep



You do need to break the habit of rocking and getting the baby to sleep. When she wakes up she does not know any other method to fall asleep and hence demands to be rocked again. Start with lying down next to her and patting her and maybe distracting her with singing or gentle humming. Once she gets used to not being rocked it will be easier for her to sleep on her own.
