She will play get bored and start whining and crying untill we pick her up. at bed time she will be asleep then as soon as i lay her down she screams, usually untill she passes out! i dont know what is causing it.. shes been checked for ear infection and does not have one. she is teething but this has been happening since before she started teething.

My son was sleeping thru the night at 2 months up until 4 months. He is 5 months and wakes up to 3 times a night. He hardly ever cries but when he does its because he needs something or has gas or lately we've noticed he just wants me to hold him of at least be in his sight. Beginning the age that they are developing socially and realizing that they are their own person. It can be hard on them. I learned tha if we get to my boy quickly (before he is crying) to let him know we are there with him, he calms much more quickly. It took 5 months of this but he has a strong security established. Do u have a baby monitor? Sometimes I hear our boy starts to wiggle in bed and I will go pat his back to give him some security to fall back asleep. Maybe that could help some. It's tiring at first but it sounds to me like a social thing. Like baby doesn't want to be separated from you
