Ok I am desperate, I've created a monster!
My LO is 7 months and has nursed to sleep every night. She gets drowsy around 9pm but doesn't actually go to sleep in her crib until 11:30 or so.
I'll usually bathe at 7:30, rock, nurse, and try to lay her down a little after 9. Her eyes pop right open and she starts crying. So, I pick her up, nurse some more, and try again. She will be completely passed out on me, but I set her down and she wakes right up. She will be so tired she is yawning and her eyes are rolling back in her head, but she refuses to sleep in her crib until the 3rd or 4th try laying her down.
This wouldnt be so bad if she would sleep at 9, but she only sleeps 11:30 to 5:30am.
I've let her cry a little but she becomes FURIOUS and pushes her self on her back till she is wedged in a corner, where she continues to arch backwards even more furious that she can't scoot backwards more.
I need help! Any ideas? What has worked for you?
