hello all.... my 5 months baby is really fussy to sleep at night and once she sleeps since three nights she is waking up crying badly but keeping her eyes closed.... I used to think that she wakes up for feed but she even refuses that and keeps crying and then after ten mins she sleeps .... what can be the reason for crying like this... please guide.... also in day time when she is awake she keeps screaming continuously... I really fail to understand the reason....

it's a bit simple if you can follow the sleeping pattern, chanchal lohia 6am-8. 30am Make baby to be active in form any activity, feed up 8. 30am-9. 30am baby sleeping time; 9. 30am-10. 30am playing,massaging, bathing, all make up activities, feed up; 10. 30am-1pm at least 12. 30pm baby sleeping time; 2pm-3pm and 4pm-5pm baby sleeping time you can have her sleeping till 6pm no prob..... if you do like this you can avoid sleeping aft tat..... feed abundantly until baby's tummy full so they fell asleep for sure... if she sleeps aft tat for an hour though you follow this, not an issue , make her sleep aft 10. 30pm, will sleep peacefully aft tat

well crying at night could be colic pain. You can try neopeptin syrup for kids as per docter advice or visit any homeopathic docter. I have done this for my 2 months baby. Also for top feed I am using glass bottles despite of plastic one

hi again! Chanchal keep on doing some activity or the other with your baby. say reading a musical book, playing with toys, or talk to her, take her to the garden or park or make her ready and take her to a place with kids around. this routine would make her active and then she can sleep between 8. 30/9. 30 pm . I am hoping by doing so she will not wake up in between.

Feeling insecured could be one of the reason when he/she is about to wake up or may feel sleepy but couldn't.... lift her and whisper gently wit all ur loving words and put her to sleep back... as one said earlier, avoid baby to be getting sleeped aft 6-7pm

hi Chanchal Lohia! it's difficult to say for sure what could be the cause of her crying. it could be anything from teething ,discomfort due to clothing, urge to pee or wants a change of diaper. u could snuggle her and gently put her back to sleep. also please ensure there is gap of 3to 4 hours between nap time . avoid putting her to sleep after 6. 30 pm. hope this helps!

Gas can be one reason for this. Apply hing-water around her navel and on her sole. Lay her upside down ( stomach down). Massage her stomach. Hope this will help...
