What's wrong with my baby?

3 month old screamed her face off for 2 full hours tonight. She didn't eat as much as she normally would, didn't have a fever, changed her diaper, burped her. She finally cried herself to sleep only to wake up an hour and a half later. This is unusual behavior..anyone know what's wrong?

  • Sometimes this just happens. We had the occasional night like this, too. Probably nothing is wrong. 
  • Most experts and research agree that letting a baby or toddler cry as they go to sleep will not have any long-term damaging effects. A child who is well-loved, nurtured, and responded to during the day will not be hurt by fussing a bit before bed in the evening. And the good news is that the crying at bedtime will probably only go on for a few days before your baby adapts and begins to learn how to put herself to sleep.
