I almost posted this a couple of nights ago, but the baby calmed down before I finished so I deleted it. I thought I may have jumped the gun. But this is now 3 times that she's been like this at bedtime, so I'll try to describe the behavior and maybe you ladies have a better idea of what could be going on. Bedtime is pretty consistantt. She snuggles in her soft blanket on the boopy in the recliner as I nurse and rock her. Now a few times she just gets mad. She latches on and off while whining and squealing. She flaps her arm around and slaps my chest or pulls my hair. She tries to turn her head down toward my inner elbow. She also pushes with her feet and squirms her back away from me. I rock, sing, shush, walk, gave gas drops. She keeps it up for 30-45 minutes with me switching sides about every 5 min before finally falling asleep. I figure it could be a number of things but I thought to post here incase it's moe common than I realize. Either way some reassurance would be much appreciated. It's been a really long day and my 3&5 year olds also gave me hell at their bedtime.
Eta: She turns 6 months this week.
