All the sleep books and online advice I have read have said that your baby should behave the same as they do at home while traveling. This is a lie. My child regularly sleeps through the night and on vacation he has been waking up numerous times. I brought a sheet from home, his snuggly toy and his sound machine. For the past two nights however our son has ended up sleeping with us as after hours of crying and struggling we just have had enough and so has he. So he gets a little sleep and mommy and daddy get no sleep.
All that to ask the question: what is hotel etiquette when traveling with a baby? Although at home if we are having a rough go at bedtime I let my son cry it out a bit--what to do in a hotel where we may be disturbing other guests?
I am horrified that my son is possibly keeping people up at night--my husband has been trying to convince me that no one can hear the noise through the walls. Any idea?
