DS has been in a great routine at night qgoing down by 7pm by settling himself. For the past two weeks his day sleep have been brilliant, self-settles and sleeping well. But he won't go down for the first sleep of the night - he cries and cries. I try feeding him to sleep, but he pulls of crying. Last night it took 2.5 hours! What could it be?

Day sleeps are great, but won't go down for the first sleep of the night...

Too many variables to say:
- how many hours is bub sleeping through the day
- when does the last nap end?
- why do you say first sleep of the night? Does bub wake up through the night?
- is bub on solids? Meat/protein?

He is 6 and a half months old. Breastfeed but also on solids for Brekkie and dinner and I'm just introducing a little bit of lunch now. I only use organic foods that I make myself. He wakes twice a night for a feed or comfort feed which I don't mind.
He self - settles most of the time during the day and night without problems but the last two weeks he screams when it's bedtime (630pm) and just will not settle at all with rocking, feeding, patting etc
Last night again took 3 hours until he gave in and dh rocked him to sleep at 10pm!!! He used to go down like a dream before 7pm after a bedtime routine.
He is in a routine during the day and the only thing that has changed in the last 2 weeks is that I have returned to work one day a week (he is at home with mum that day) and we won't away for a weekend when this started. Could it be that? No teeth yet either!

Oh, Vic park - I haven't added protein yet and today I'm going to eliminate his afternoon nap (he is on two big sleeps of 1.5hrs and one 40 min nap)
Thanks for your thoughts!

Also, try and make sure you and hubby have exactly the same routine for putting bub down. Hubby put our bub down one night and be started crying. I gathered it was because I say a little rhyme before putting bub down and hubby doesn't!
