Maybe he is over-tired?

I'm working in an extra nap during the day which is messing with bedtime a bit but w/o it he's exhausted by 5pm and I think that's too early for bed. Hopefully we'll get a good routine down soon.

Re: Do all babies hate to fall asleep?

I hate going to sleep. Does that count? But I have anxiety issues.

Dd1 HATES going to sleep often (crying/screaming), but I am pretty sure it's related to her reflux. She had awful GERD when she was little, and it still flares up a lot now, and when it's bad she'll puke after she falls asleep. She sleeps a lot happier with her pillow propped up to help out.

DD really hates to be rocked to sleep. If we don't put her in her bed, it's a losing battle for sure. She often needs to fuss it out a bit too - she doesn't escalate into a cry, but makes noise and crawls around her bed. After that, she conks right out and we don't hear from her for the rest of the night.

Have you tried putting your LO in the crib once he gets to the aggressive stage in the night?

Re: Do all babies hate to fall asleep?

My older DD hated to be held to sleep. Even as a newborn she would get worked into a frantic. DD2 is just now getting to the stage where if she gets overtired she will get frantic like that. What's worked for both girls is this, if we are out and about and I have to hold them to sleep I swaddle their shoulders with a blanket and hug them tightly, rock, pat, or jiggle with them in my arms and shush or hum lightly to get the white noise effect. If we are home and they can't sleep I put them in their cribs and pat them on their backs and butts at the same time. If they roll over I just roll them back and keep patting. I don't think either of my girls has made it more than 5 min before they are asleep with either of these. Generally though I just tuck them to bed and they go to sleep.

Re: Do all babies hate to fall asleep?

At that age, both of my kids hated to be put to sleep. I would just lay them in their cribs and they'd go to sleep on their own. Can your ds put himself to sleep? Maybe he's "asking" for that!????
