I am at my witts end. My daughter, pretty much since she turned 1 three days ago, has been screaming bloody murder before bed, protesting, fighting me, won't nurse to sleep, wont take her paci, but the moment I get her up, and take her into the living room, she's fine. I've ruled out hungry, wet, teething, tummy aches, everything I can think of. The only thing I can figure is she's going through a growth spurt or about to hit a milestone or something. Can anyone relate? She's so close to walking. I'm guessing this is it, but I can't hardly bear trying to rock her to sleep while she's fighting me the whole time, but I also can't bear to just let her scream in there. Any tips?

Hi, did you ever find out why your daughter was doing this? My son is doing exactly the same thing. He used to go to bed lovely but he does exactly as you have described.

oh and I don't think it's an earache or infection or anything. She's never had one and has no symptoms.
