  • He may just be anticipating bed time and has bedtime anxiety especially when he sees the sun go down. Does he co sleep or crib sleep, maybe he is afraid to be alone and it would be better to wait in the room till he falls asleep.

  • Since we moved he has been co-sleeping maily because we live in Oklahoma and it's hot and we only have one window unit and so he sleeps in the floor on some blankets at night next to our mattress and during the day he sleeps in his crib with a fan.. He does fine during the day

  • Hum, then it's probably not night time anxiety because co-sleeping babies don't usually get that. Does he eat the oatmeal and drink formula before or after he begins crying? Maybe he's constipated,try adding some apple sauce to his oat meal, maybe that will help. Good luck, I hope things get better.

  • Try starting the whole routine earlier, he may be over tired.
    Do not give him tylenol every day, it can damage his liver. Save it for when he is really sick, high fever etc.
