  • Not at all. There were nights my dd would cry at the bottom of the stairs and point up. I'd put her in bed and she go right to sleep.

  • Not at all. They might be teething or going through a growth spirit. If that's the case then sleep is the best thing for them. Warm bath and into bed. When my children go through growth spirits they will sometimes sleep for like 15hrs straight.

  • The No Cry Sleep Solution by .... SH##, can't remember her name -- will pull it up -- actually says most kids hit a tired point at some point in the evening between 6 and 8, and that it really can be as early as 6. So tuck that baby in, Momma.
