  • Talk it over with her pediatricain and see what he/she suggests. Watch the baby carefully and try to anticipate when it wlll happen and redirect her. Make sure she is spending one on one time with you and your SO each day.

  • My son used to do that at bedtime so he wouldn't have to go to bed... he was around 15m when it started... it didn't last too long but it was horrible... he'd mess up his bed because then I'd have to take him out of it to clean it and he'd run around lol

  • It will pass if she gets the attention she needs. Spend quality time with her.
