My 3 month old has the hardest time falling asleep at night. He get really fussy, feeds a lot but stays up for about an hour or two. We have tried putting him down after he had been fed and seems sleepy. We have tried giving him a paci, and we have tried rocking him to sleep with lights of, soft music etc. Any one else having this problem? When he finally sleeps, he does sleep for 4 to 6 hours. He used to go to sleep at 8pm and waked up every 2 hours. Now even if he falls asleep and is placed in his crib at 8, it is only a nap. He will wake up and stay up for a few hours. Around 9:30- 10:00 he wants to be nursed. He falls asleep nursing but when placed in his crib wakes up to play. The lights stay off and we have quiet voices. He nurses after a few minutes of play then starts to fuss sleepily. HE WONT LET HIMSELF SLEEP until an hour later. So for the next hour he is fussy, falling asleep, waking up etc. When he does sleep he sleeps for 4-6 hrs.
