I am begging right now for any help/pointers I can get. Our daughter has just discovered sitting up and standing in her crib. She doesn't seem to know how to or won't lay back down. As of right now she's is crying and I'm going in there every 5-10min putting her back down. HELP! I'm ready to pull my hair out!

Oh my I remember this phase...it is maddening but it will pass very soon....she just learned something new and is having fun with it!
Our son always did that at night and he couldnt figure out how to lay back down.
Just keep showing her how to lay back down and doing what your doing...I promise it will pass before you know it...then on to the next phase of pull your hair out moments..lol...looking back they are precious wonderful achievements!

How old is she? Well I'm guessing young if she's just figured this out. Does she chew on the crib? Only reason I ask is because they have crib teethers and maybe that will keep her busy.
I would also make sure she is ready for bed/nap time. She may not be. The trick I've found is to wear them out!!!!!

This will happen for about a week or a little more. My daughter did the same. During the day try showing her how to sit and lay down from standing next to a couch or something. That's about all you can do, sorry. Good luck.
