I am sure there have been a million posts about this through the years but like all babies, my little Allie is fussy in the evenings. She is nearly 9 weeks old and when she naps during the day, I typically put her in her crib when she is drowsy and she goes right off to sleep on her own. When its her bedtime (between 8-10pm) she fights sleep. I have allowed her to cry it out on several occasions (although my hubby wont!) but I don't like to think that needs to be the norm to get her to sleep. Lastly, I've noticed that she doesn't really want to go to bed for the night until about 10 so I've been trying to give her a late evening nap (7pmish) just to give me some time to either cook/eat/bath my older kids ect but that doesn't seem to be very easy either, she tends to cry then too. So here is my question-I feel like I've tried many options but my other two were NEVER this fussy in the evening and I can't get dinner cooked, or eaten, or to bed at a decent hour, how come she is perfect during day but not at bedtime. Any suggestions-I give her bath, try to make a routine, try to let her play while I cook, try to give her nap during that time, feed her PLENTY (she seems to want to cluster feed in evening, lucky me, ugh, haha), hold her, ect. HELP!
