  • Start a naptime/bedtime routine, start calming them down an hour before bed then give them a bath, read a story (Or 10 LOL) and then tuck them in. Routine is key.

  • I AGREE THAT ROUTINE IS KEY, BUT MAYBE A LITTLE SOOTHING MUSIC WOULD HELP, AND AS A ROUTINE, IT WOULD SIGNAL THE TIME TO SLEEP.

  • Try different ways of holding them. Try swaddleing and rocking. Try holding them close ans just calmly say shhhsshh over and over. try different lighting, different types of soothing music. Maybe they have gas so lay them on their back and raise their knees to their chest, do this every few seconds and if they fart, that was the problem. Also could be constipation, is their tummy hard?
    Are they teething? babies cry for a reason. I had a friend who's baby cried for 9 months straight and the Dr's found that he had a block in his intestine. He was in pain the whole time! poor little guy.
    Try everything and be calm about it or the baby will feel you tension and will make it worse.

  • Tell them they can do something fun or have a yummy treat when they wake up. I always say to my two kids, "if you dont nap you dont play" because they get so grumpy and unbeariable when they dont nap.

  • I also tell my lil boy who is 4 that sleep and napping helps him grow bigger. He is into the Hulk and so he totally goes for they "grows bigger" part.
