My 4 mth old baby doesn't want to sleep in her cot.. My girl doesn't like to sleep in her cot since she's back from the hospital. But we manage to train her to sleep in her cot at night. So, she takes her nap in swing and sleep in cot at night. She used to fall asleep by herself in the cot on about 10-15min after i put her in (she'll suck her fingers and talk to herself a little before falling asleep). But for the past 3 nights, she was crying badly after I put her down to cot. She'll cry even louder when she sees me walking out of the room. I know that she's very tired but she just kept on crying and refuse to sleep.. I don't know why she behave like this suddenly.. She was ok all these while.. Does any mum face the same situation before? Should I consult the paed?

She might be over-tired, and it's difficult for an overtired baby to fall asleep. When my son had a stuffy nose I would put a rolled-up blanket under the one end of the crib mattress so that it would be a bit higher. It really seemed to help.

Thanks Amy.. She still doesn't want to sleep in her cot.. The moment we put her down, she will cry non-stop.. She will fall asleep when I feed her some water or during burping after drinking a little.. She's really tired, but she doesn't want to sleep in her cot. Anyone face this problem before?

Saline drops and a boogie bulb (I'm not sure of the real name) it's a suction to help clear out the nasal passages.

I realized that she's having blocked nose, that's why she doesn't want to sleep in her cot.. because cot is flat.. Any way that I can use to help to relieve her blocked nose?

There were nights that my daughter would put herself to sleep and then there were nights when my daughter wanted to be held to sleep. On those nights I would just rock her and settle her down. I don't think that by comforting her at such a young age you will be creating any problems, she just wants her mom. She has no other way of communicating with you other than crying.
