    Default Did your baby go through the witching hours?

    If so, when did it start?

    Honestly I know she did, but I can't remember! I remember DH walking her up and down while I ate dinner, and that at the time it seemed like it would never end. I don't think there's much you can do but hold bubs as much as possible and push through it.

    Oh yes, with a vengeance! She was seriously possessed by the devil between the hours of 8-11pm. Can't remember exactly when it stopped but prob around 8 weeks. In hindsight though, a lot of it was due to her silent reflux which was undiagnosed at the time.

    Around 2-3 months, for about 6 weeks. From about 7-11pm. I don't know if its a coincidence but it stopped 2 nights after I trialled not having any TV on during the evening feed.

    Hang in there!

    Yes, I think it was at about 6ish months. She was able to sit up and was very curious about what I was doing, it would be at 430 when I'd be making dinner and she would scream and scream to be held. Kept going till I changed my routine to either cook dinner in advance or to slow cook or bake so I'd just shove all the ingredients together and walk away. I also started to have dinner earlier we'd eat around 7 and that was way to late for her to have activity going on so we we've been having dinner around 6 since. Worked for us

    Arghhh yes, with jasper. From about 2 weeks to 2 months, screaming from 5-6pm until 7-8 pm. It was horrible.
