Hello! I've not posted on here in years, but I am in need of some serious advice.
My DS is almost 5 months old (he's my third child and by far the toughest. DD = 5, DS = 3)
He HATES sleep. He will be happy, then act sleepy (but still happy) so I swaddle him, hold him, give him his lovey, and the moment he realizes I am putting him to bed, he freaks out and won't calm down. I can't seem to get him to sleep, and then when he finally does (unfortunately with a lot of crying) it only lasts maybe 30 min.
Any advice or help?? I'm feeling so tired and frustrated.
Re: My baby is happy until sleep time
That does sound rough. Is this new or has he always been tough at bed time?
Are you putting him to bed at the right time? Is he overly tired by the time you put him down? Is he teething? Sick? Anything else going on?
Is he sleeping flat in a crib? RnP? Perhaps where he is sleeping is the problem?
Sorry, lots of questions.
