I recall discussing the witching hour a few months ago, but now that I'm suffering through the witching afternoon and evening, I thought we could hash it up again.
My DD went through a phase of witching hour when she was a few weeks old. At the time, I found it to be horrific. She would start the fussing at about 5pm and by 8 she would be fine.
My DS has decided to see his sister's call and raise it to the limit. His hour starts about 4 pm and doesn't stop until nearly 10. During this time, he will fall asleep in my arms, but as soon as I try to put him in the swing, bassinet, crib et. al. he flips his lid and we start all over again.
This has happened every day this week, and I'm starting to lose my sanity. I'm struggling with keeping him calm and taking care of DD, not to mention get dinner on the table, use the restroom, etc. Anyone else experiencing this? I don't think it's colic, since he's calm if I'm holding him.
