DS2 has that classic unsettled period in the late afternoon. I guess it's not too bad as it only really lasts between 4 and 6 and sometimes it is broken up by a catnap.
I was curious as to what practical things other people do or have done to manage the "witching hour". For some silly reason I have persisted with trying to get DS2 to have a nap in his cot but I often give up and put him (still wrapped) in his rocker where he can see us while we do what we need to do. Sometimes he falls asleep there - other times he just whinges on and off til 5:30 when I normally give him a bath. Today he eventually fell asleep just before 5 in his bed, but I will still get him up for his bath at 5:30 and in bed for the night by 7.
Also - when did people find this unsettled period stopped happening? BabyLove suggests sometime between 8 and 12 weeks. DS1 never really had the unsettled period (dream baby) and it's all new to me.
Thanks for your responses!
