She has never slept all the way through the night (usually wants to eat after 5 hours), but she's always been pretty good about putting herself back to sleep after I feed her. I could lay her down wide awake, and she would go to sleep. But, it seems like the day she turned 5-months, she suddenly cries relentlessly when I stop nursing her and lay her down. It is like she is addicted to falling asleep while nursing, but this only JUST STARTED! I've never "propped" her by nursing her to sleep. What gives?? I've tried letting her cry it out, but she will literally scream for an hour and never fall asleep, and it is misery for me, too. She is now waking every 3 hours at night.
