Ok moms I'm a first time mother and having bed time issues. Every time I go to lay my little girl down to sleep she wakes up as soon as she hits the bed and then screams. She doesn't want to sleep in her own bed. She is almost 4 months old and not sure how to break the crying cycle. I will give her a bottle rock her to sleep and go lay her down and she will wake back up!!! Help

Firstly, congratulations! You have a lot of fun ahead of you with your little munchikin, but also a lot of hard times too. This would be one of the first hurdles. Do you have a firm routine in place yet? If not, then that would definitely be a great place to start. When children have a firm routine, everything just seems to fall into place with them and with you. My son started sleeping right through the night with no fuss or crying at 3 months and is still sleeping right through not a problem to this day (he is almost 4 years old). I started the routine at 6pm:
Bottle-burp
playtime
bathtime
massages then dress
By this point we were at about 7.15-7.30, Sometimes, if he was still fussing, I gave him a top up bottle and made sure there was no more gas and that he was burped well, if I were to lay him in his crib but he was still gassy he would fuss and cry from discomfort. It might be a good idea to feed her then put her in her crib so she can sooth herself to sleep. Hope I helped a little and goodluck with everything :)
