Sounds like Miley might like to be rocked to sleep...my son has been waking up at night, due to teething, and I rock him back to sleep...it's the only thing that works.
Since Miley falls asleep the moment she's by your side in bed, she just needs reassurance. I say give a baby all the comfort they need.
Now, if they are 16 and want to be rocked to sleep????
It would be nice if the pharm cos produced the shots separately, but again, no scientific data it would work.
Cocoa, I hear you re: a virus 'triggering' an autism gene...but where are the data? I'd love to see a link to a scientific study!!!! All of the info out there is from moms who've 'witnessed' their children's reactions to the MMR...but no hard science. I think if I had an autistic child I'd also be looking to blame a vaccine, or pharm company, or what have you. But I can't help but think if a kid was going to have something wrong, it would happen regardless.
My nephew is an Aspberger's kid...he does have some incredibly 'goofy genes' (depression, bi-polar) on both parents' side...so it's no huge shock to both families...he is trying to be around, but incredibly intelligent so will probably be a computer nerd who'll get by in life, somehow. In the interim, we all hear about roller coasters, the weather channel, etc to no end...and now he talks to my babies as we have realized they are good listeners! (well, until they start complaining)
