This is all wonderful advice!! It is just so frustrating because up until about a week or two ago, she would go down at like 10:00 and sleep until like 9:00! Stacy, that is a good idea, I have to walk around with her for about 20 minutes to get her to bed and I wish she would just fall asleep on her own! I will definitely try that! Yamuna, I think you are right too, it takes forever just to get her to burp and sometimes she falls asleep before she burps and wont wake back up.

I did the ferber(?) method with my son who is now 3. Put her down and if she starts to cry wait 5 minutes then go in there and pick her up and soothe her. Once she is soothed put her back down. If she cries again wait 10 minutes then go back in and soothe her. The next time wait 15 minutes and so on.... The next day start off waiting 10 mintes then the next day wait till 20 minutes and so on. It might take a week or two but I have heard it helped for several people. Something that I did with my daughter now 6mos. Is I would always put her down before she falls asleep so she can learn to put herself to sleep.

Could it be possible that she has gas ? As I know when Maximilian was wee and was lying down it seemed to build up and that made him very uncomfortable and irritable. We go him some over the counter meds and in a few weeks he was better, plus walking with him after a feed and getting as many burps out seemed to help too.
