My 3.5 month old can sleep 8, sometimes 10 hour stretches but only between the hours of 2 AM to 2 PM. In the evenings she gets fired up with happy, bubbly energy peaking at about 10 PM no matter what kind of day she's had (full of naps, no naps, we kept her up, we let her sleep, etc.). The concept of "bedtime" is completely wasted and frustrates all of us, especially when I tried Dr. Weissbluth's advice and put her to bed super-early for about a week (Healthy Sleep Habits Happy Child - a terribly written book, incidentally), she literally laughed at us. I don't see Cry it Out working because she's genuinely awake and wants to socialize, but we'd like our evenings as husband and wife back. Is this doomed to continue?
