My daughter is 7 months, as you know by the title...she cries hers eyes out. i mean screams like she is being hurt when i put her down...i give her alot of "tummy time" because i want her to crawl, something she isnt doing yet. when on her tummy, she pushes up, i get down there with her so she doesnt give up, but eventually she screams...

 Also, in the middle of night she wakes up and REFUSES to be back in her crib....ughhhh. my son was total opposite. please help!!!!!

 hmmm, have you considered baby wearing? as far as the bed time thing I'm not sure what to tell you. as far as tummy time goes, you could lay on your back and let her lay on top of you. or you could try laying her on your lap. Good luck! I hopethat you re abl to find something that works out for you.

Toys in front of them during tummy time help. Baby wearing was a god send when my LO went through that phase

You have to be stronger than she is. You know she needs to be able to sleep in her crib and she needs to learn to crawl. You have to be able to put her down once in a while. Maybe you could get a baby carrier for when she is particularly fussy but she is old enough to be able to sit for a few minutes. Sit in the same room as her and let her see you sitting. She will soon learn that you will be right there. Put reflective toys and crinkly toys in front her during tummy time. You'll get there. Every baby is different.

It's normal :) sounds like she is a mommys girl. My kid didn't crawl until 8-9 months and they also hated tummy time. My kids were pretty much attached to my boob the first 12 months so I'm not much help there. Lol I had to tell myself every.single.day that it will NOT last forever. Then I repeated it several times throughout the day. They are now 2&4 and while they still love hanging all over me at times they are still very independent little ones.

Good luck
