    We have a 3.5 month old baby, even at this age, he is very fussy most evenings not able to sleep. He is tired and sleepy but is unable to close his eyes (almost in the fear of missing out on this happening around him). Please help! how far is the light at the end of the tunnel? Anything we can do to help him fall asleep in the evening? He is 100% bottle fed (90% BM and supplemental formula). Thank you for all your help with this.

      @Viral – Thank you for reading and for sharing with us. Babies can be especially fussy in the evenings for several reasons and we’re so sorry to hear that your little guy’s sleep is being impacted by it! 🙁 We don’t have enough details to adequately help you pinpoint why this is happening – it could be due his daily sleeping habits, his feeding schedule, the environment he’s in at bedtime, his ability to fall asleep independently, his tiredness or overtired state, etc. If you haven’t developed a consistent bedtime routine for him, this could be a great first step in settling down his evenings. Please consider reaching out to our Client Relations Team for more support and guidance, Viral. Hang in there – we’re here to help!

    My 2 week old seems to be extremely fussy and difficult in the late evening. He is ok during the day. But none of the tricks and tips seem to work in the evening. His diaper is clean, he is fed, yet he still cries and screams.

    Help.

      Hi @Joana, thanks for writing to us. I am sorry to hear you’re struggling at night with your newborn! You are not alone in this, and I know how frustrating it can be. With both my kids it was like this, and was poorly timed as it seemed as soon as their dad got home they only wanted me, and that was the last thing I wanted by that point. It could be that he just want to suck (either nursing even if it’s not for nourishment or on a paci), or there’s a potential that he’s gassy, among other things and of course the mystery that babies do what they want to sometimes! 😉 Here is a link to download our free guide with tips for parents of newborns which may have some helpful information: https://www.babysleepsite.com/15-free-baby-sleep-facts-new-parents-must-know/
      I hope this helps! Hang in there!
