[deleted account] ( 12 moms have responded )

Ok so My daughter Baylee is 2 months old and she is such a happy baby but every night here lately at about the same time every night she gets really grumpy and fussy and nothing works she doesn't want a bottle a bath calms her down but once you take her out of the tub she is fussy again she doesn't need a diaper change I've tried gas medicine and it seems like everytime she falls asleep and I try and move her from my bed to hers she just wakes up right after I lay her down. I don't know what to do.

I had the same problem with my daughter at about the same age. Good thing for me was she grew out of it. It only lasted like 2 weeks but for those 2 weeks it was really hard. Make sure before you put her to bed she eats a full 'meal'. that way she is not still hingry when she goes to bed cause my daughter would fall asleep nursing and wake up when i put her down cause she was still hungry. but another thing that helps them relax is lavender lotion and or bath soap. lavender is a relaxing aromatherapy and really works. another thing is if you are not doing it, try swaddling her. it will make her feel like you are still holding her when you lay her in her own bed. hope this helps..

definitely sounds tired. my daughter used to do the same thing. i started putting her to bed earlier with her same bedtime routine and she did much better--she acts the same way now at age 4! overtired and ready for sleep if we miss her bedtime!

Try changing her routine. Could be sleeping pattern is changing or, possibly be fed to close to beddy by time. Babies have to try to self sooth themselves, don't be too quick to rescue them.

Have u tried the Mommy Bear? or try warming up her blanket in the dryer...she is probably wanting the warmth from you.I used to put receiving bankets in the dryer or even a towel and roll it up and place it next to her in the bed...

I think she is just being fussy cause it's night night time what i did was right before bed i played luluaby musci and rocked her to sleep. and left that on of course when she got older the music got louder but try that. or rubbing her face, back legs they love that. Sing to her it's all on what you can do for her you know. try those things.

i went through this at the same age with my son. i thought it was an early onset of teething. however it wasnt the case he just needed to have a full meal and then he was set for bed. with the moving them part its hard as well. try when she wakes up giving her a pacifier it usually puts them back to sleep and once she is sound to sleep she will just spit it out.

try getting her on a set schedule like for my son its dinner at 5:30pm then play in jhonny jump up or saucer til 8:00pm bath time at 8:00 then bottle at 8:30pm then bed at 9:00pm in his own crib. that seems to help. maybe tell your peditrician your problem i had a similar problem with him everytime hed eat a bottle in the middle hed stop and scream. I talked to his peditrician and found out its heartburn. but try the schdule first and its imprortant to stick with it as well. I hope i could help..

Maybe she needs an earlier bed time..And maybe you should try to get her to fall asleep on her own in her crib. I had to learn that lesson the hard way. But after a couple of days, my daughter would go right to sleep on her own. Good Luck!
