It's a phase I have gone through with BOTH my older girls and honestly, as frustrating as it is, in my experience I just had to wait it out. I wanted to knock my head on a wall while it lasted, but nothing I did worked... just waiting for the "novelty to wear off", so to say.
We have that problem more at naptime. I finally just had to walk out of the room and let him cry. When he's really tired he won't cry long. A couple of times I have gone in and he will finally sit down and then lay down. If it's naptime, and he won't stop crying I usually just end up getting him up and trying again later. At first, I would try to soothe him and he would be fine as long as I stood by the crib and he could touch me...but as soon as I would walk away he would cry and then stand and cry. At nighttime he doesn't usually do it. I usually nurse him and he's tired and ready to go to bed. We have been going through this for about a month, but it is getting better. So no real good advice here....but I feel your pain!
Pea did that too! And now that Julia said it I realized it is a phase! Because it started with her crawling around in her crib. It's like she would lay down, roll over and than get on her hands and knees. Then when she learned how to stand she stood. If she is tired enough she will stay down and lay down. Sometimes she takes a while to get comfy and it's funny to watch. She will sit up, and then face plant into the bed with her butt in the air. It's SO funny.
Totally a phase. . .And I agree there is nothing you can do well, nothing we could do. lol. Gary now crawls around and makes a spot in his crib like a dog. . .also like pea, with his butt up in the air. lol. . . I just leave the room now, he stopped the crying now he just chills in there last night i was peeing and i could hear him in his room dive down and that was it for the night. well the next 2 hours lol
Willow knows when I lay down and turn the lights off it's bedtime. She cuddles and nurses.
More fundamental than religion is our basic human spirituality. We have a basic human disposition towards love, kindness and affection, irrespective of whether we have a religious framework or not. When we nurture this most basic human resource – when we set about cultivating those basic inner values which we all appreciate in others, then we start to live spiritually. - Dalai Lama
