My 17month old daughter used to go to bed without problems. Within the last month we have had a really hard time. All she does is cry and it can last up to 30mins. Anyone have any ideas?

It all depends... But make sure her naps are early during the day... Also after dinner run her tired.. You can take her out side for some play time, keep her active and playing inside, or read her a good book before laying her down... Another idea is try to keep to a routine before bedtime.. That way they know what's coming and when.. After a while they may get so use to it, it will become alot easier...

I thought I was alone in this situation, my son is 15 months and I just posted the same question, I'm very frustrated with this new situation, I feel your pain, let me know if you find an answer. Good luck!

If you have a way of putting on some soothing music..especially country songs---slow ones they work great! My hubby showed me that trick, and also rub their back and tummy. sometimes just laying there with them helps alot. Comforting...
