I am having trouble getting my little girl to fall asleep at night. During the day she will fall asleep pretty much anywhere without problem. We do have a bedtime routine, bath, massage, pajamas, nursing. Most of the time she falls asleep nursing, but not always. Then I will lay her down and she will be ok for a few minutes and then she will start crying. This goes on for awhile, I will go in calm her down lay her back down, and she will be fine for a minute then it just repeats. Sometimes it takes her as long as 2 hours to settle into sleep. I have tried rocking her to sleep then putting her in bed and I have tried putting her in bed while she is drowsy. And she is definitely tired, sometimes she is even crying with her eyes closed. She is also on prevacid for acid reflux and she sleeps on a crib wedge so her head is elevated. Once she falls asleep she sleeps a good 8-10 hours every night...
