We are having the hardest time with the baby at night. She will be 8 months old on Saturday. She sleeps all night once we get her to sleep. Getting her to sleep is not the problem, she falls asleep great if we are holding her or cuddling her. But the second we put her in her crib she freaks out and screams. We've tried to let her cry it out anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes and she continues to throw a fit. She doesn't have any medical problems that could be causing this. She's currently on antibiotics for an ear infection but that's it. We've tried everything as to bedtime routines: baths, books, bottles, singing, rocking. The only thing that shuts her up is picking her up and laying down with her. The only way for us to get sleep is for me to lay down and sleep with the baby and DH sleeps in our bed. He needs the sleep because he is working all the time and I'm home with the baby. I'm so exhausted and we are so frustrated and I really REALLY miss sleeping with my husband, not just the sex but sharing a bed with him. Ugh. Any thoughts or advice???
