For the gals who have delivered already, how did your nights go at the hospital? My nights seem to be very different from my days! I saw the posts below about the witching hour, but everyone who responded seemed to have little ones who were a bit older. My DD is fine for the most part during the day. She eats, looks around for a bit, then naps until she's ready to eat again. However last night and tonight, she refuses to be set down in the crib. I have to be holding her or she has to be on my chest. Last night she started acting this way at about 9pm and it lasted until 3am. This evening, she started right after eating at 8:30 and is calm at the moment but that's because she's asleep on my chest. DS did the same thing, he cried for the ENTIRE second night despite anything I tried. He ended up having colic so little to be said, I am starting to get very worried that she may be just as difficult as her brother.
I guess my question is does the witching hour apply to newborns, or is it for a litlte bit older in age? And has anyone other then my experienced this in the hospital? As far as I can remember, DS was better once we got home when he could be in his swing or his basinet, as it vibrated. Although by the time he was a month old he hated to be in his swing and only slept in his basinet at night but that's a different story.
Just curious if it's just my kids that seem to hate the hospital!
