At around 6-6:30pm most nights my 12 week old DD completely loses the plot- screaming, sweating (usually have to strip her clothes off), wont take a feed, won't settle no matter what we do. It usually lasts about 20-30 mins and then she will settle enough to have a feed and will go to sleep.
I have put it down to being over-tired and over-stimulated. I try putting her down for a late nap at around 5pm, even if its just for half an hour or so while I organise DS and get dinner started before their bath at around 6:30... but she often refuses to sleep late afternoon and as a result she becomes a screaming mess right when I need to deal with dinner etc.
Does anyone elses baby do this? And how do you prepare or deal with it?
