My 3 month old is great. From the time she wakes up until about 7PM she's giggles, rainbows, sunshine and unicorns.
About 7PM she gets cranky, as is expected for a little one. The trouble is that EVERY NIGHT she SCREAMS from 8-10PM - until she finally falls asleep. She consistently falls asleep at 10PM and for the last week hasn't woken up until 7AM. 9 hours is great for 3 months, but what can I do about the screaming at night?
I think she's fighting sleep, and that the feeling of being tired makes her mad. She literally screams and flails around like she's in pain! She turns red and even loses her voice sometimes! I've tried everything from leaving her in her bed alone, to walking/rocking her to sleep. I’ve given her a bottle, her binky, her bunny. It doesn't seem to matter what I do- she screams every night for at least an hour and half, and always crashes at 10PM.
What can I do about the screaming?!?!

If it wasn't for the routine I would think she had gas. I was surprised at how well singing calms my DD, she stops crying, stares and smiles. You might want to try the gas med just in case.
