What happened to my great, wonderful, awesome baby that went right to sleep when I put him down?
B's bed time is 8pm and has been since he was about 6 months old. Our routine is eat dinner at 6:45, bath at 7:15, bottle/cup and book at 7:45 and bed at 8pm. He used to go straight down with out a fuss and go right to sleep.
We go through the same routine, however now at 8pm once I put him in his bed all hell breaks loose. He cries and fusses. He doesn't need a change, doesn't want milk, doesn't want to be rocked or want to be held. Basically nothing makes him happy.
He is so tired he can barely keep his eyes open; it's like he knows that if he is still he will fall asleep. Tonight we fought each other for an hour before I finally was just going let him CIO in his bed. Now I can't stand to listen to him cry for more than 5 minutes or so, but I was on my last nerve. I had even tried to put him in bed with me to sleep with us but he didn't want that either.
Lucky once I put him down and turned on his music he never really cried. He did fuss and let us know he wasn't happy but no crying. How was he after that? He slumped over because he passed out while sitting up.
What happened to him? Any suggestions from other mommies on what to do?
