I have two girls--27 months and 7 months. Lately (past few days) my 27 month old is going apesh*t at bedtime. Just screeching and writhing on the floor. She may have a slight cold, is still traumatized over the new baby, and got a new "big girl" bed yesterday. It's trying and even more so because my husband blames me whenever she exhibits undesirable behavior. Does anyone have advice on how to calm her down. My usual bedtime routine isn't working. She protests at baths, at story time. Our house is already calm and quiet, not a lot of activity, so I don't think it's a case of over stimulation. I'm reluctant to do time out because she screams through out it and at this time, the baby is already in bed, and with both crying, it makes it that much harder to get anyone down.
