My 5 month old takes anywhere from 1 to 4 hours to get to sleep at night. This has been going on for nearly 3 weeks! Prior to this she was a perfect night sleeper. Fro 9 weeks of age she was sleeping all through the night. Now she takes a long time to go to sleep AND wakes during the night! Any suggestions on how to get her back to her old sleeping patten?

He probably has colic. Try a little TEMPRA for calmness and speak with your Pediatrician for advice on prescription for gas, because that could be the culprit. Also try the Johsons Baby Soothing Products for bathing. This is is a calming method too and do please try getting the child on a sleep schedule. let him/her stay up a little longer in the day, play with hi/her and cut in some of the naptime too, then feed on a schedule routinely. When night fall, he's a gonner!!
