Ok, it's 5:30 in the morning and I JUST got my daughter to go to sleep, this hasn't been a big problem for a while, but now all of the sudden, she won't sleep in her bed anymore. She goes to sleep fine while I'm holding her, but when I lay her down she starts screaming, she's almost 7 mos now, but we haven't this much trouble since she was 2 mos old, any ideas about how I can get her to sleep in her own bed again?
It's normal for babies to start having sleeping problems around this age - - there are teeth coming in and growth spurts to live through. Anytime a new developmental milestone comes up, sleep will be affected.
Does she have a lovey that she's attached to yet? You can introduce one by keeping it with her everywhere she goes. Eventually her attachment to that item will help her self soothe during these times of rough sleeping patterns.
You can also try the no cry sleep solution to help teach her to fall asleep on her own.
