crying to sleep.
Until Elizabeth's one year appointment we rocker her to sleep every night. Around thus time she was staying up later and later because I think the rocking was actually over stimulin her.
It got so bad that we asked the doc what to do.
She said it was time to put Elizabeth down sleepy but awake.
It's been 2 weeks. She still crystal for anywhere from 10 to 30 min.
Even for naps.
She no longer breast feeds.
Her schedule is kind of a later one then normal families because of my work schedule.
Up not later than 10am. Wake up... bottlle... breakfast. Nap.... bottle lunch. Nap bottle dinner. Bath and some play time and a bottle if she makes it That Long. Some cuddle time then bed.
she goes from happy go lucky to just real crabby. There's no calming her. That's when we put he down for bed.
Anythin would help here.
We have a routine down,,potty, brush teeth, kisses from daddy, books, lights out, and i cuddle untill they are asleep then sneak off to my own bed. Starts about the same time every night and it's no surpise to anyone. On the weekends we try to stay up a little later, but once at least two of them start getting crabby, we're done-we head up to bed (usually by 9).
You might try taking a nap away or making sure to wear her out between last nap and bed time.
