She is very tired but just refuses to sleep

Hi Maree, My girl is just over 3 months old. She cries so madly when I put her to bed around the time 6:00pm. She can cry for an hour and I know she is very tired but just refuses to sleep. The other time of the day she is perfect even she is not tired then she will play alone. Only the evening bed time drives me mad. Please help.
Thank you very much.

Answer: Hi, This can by a very trying hour of the day for many of us and you could try using our settling techniques. Try to implement a feed/play/sleep routine and this way you can feed, then play then watch for tired signs and settle her into her cot straight away. Remember an overtired baby is harder to settle. You can get an overview of our settling program from the Your Baby`s Sleep section of the Huggies site or for more detail, and a visual demonstration; It`s Time To Sleep DVD & BOOK. Cheers, Maree
