Our daughter has suddenly over the last three nights become inconsolable at night time.
We had a very effective routine of bath, book, bottle bed that has worked for 2 months now. She would be out like a light in 10-15 minutes of taking her upstairs from the bath.
Now suddenly the last three nights we finish the bath, get her ready for bed take her upstairs and she absolutely screams the house down.
Putting her down she screams
She won't settle in our arms either, she won't go down using a papoose. She literally screams for 3 hours until I think she tuckers out.
She still wakes for a feed at between 1-3am and has suddenly also become very hard to put down after that. Often taking another 1-2 hours to get back down.
As you can imagine we're anxious and exhausted.
We want to try sleep training but to do that we need to be able to sooth her in our arms before putting her down again
Anyone had this issue? Any tips?
What's her day time sleep like? I am just wondering if she is napping too close to bedtime? Definitely worth looking at her overall sleep, nap times etc!
We consistently have got her down at 10am then 2pm she's not a huge daytime nap baby regardless. We tried 3 naps but she never seemed tired enough to go down
