Ever since the four month sleep regression hit its been taking anywhere from 1 to 5 hours to get DD to sleep every single night. She's 5 months old now so this has been going on for over a month. Every night I try putting her down for her last nap of the day, which takes 1 or 2 hours. When she inevitably skips that nap or sleeps for like 20 minutes its usually time to put her to sleep. So what started out as putting her down for a nap turns into 2 or 3 or 5 hours of putting her down to sleep. Tonight I tried everything for 2 hours. We walked, bounced, sat in the swing, got a baby massage, rocked, sang, EVERYTHING! If I put her down she would scream like a velociraptor or bawl like her fingernails were being pulled out.
So my question is..at what point do I just give up and let her scream? She's literally just passing out from exhaustion every night. Nothing I'm doing is having any effect. Luckily once she's down she sleeps all night with only one or two wake ups.
