Please someone tell me I'm not alone. My baby is five months old and screams for like an hour straight every time we try to put her to bed! She gets sooooo tired so we put her down and then all hell breaks loose. We try to cuddle her but nothing works. She falls asleep for five seconds then starts screaming again!! She has been changed, fed etc. but just refuses to sleep every night.
You are definitely not alone! My little girl is five months too and did this until we started using white noise. We also lie her down on our bed and rub her nose for a little while until she falls asleep then move her to her cot about half an hour later. Hope this helps.
