my 5 month old Baby is fighting his naps, he gets tired & shows signs that it nap time but as soon as I try to settle him he screams, fights me & gets himself red & sweaty.
No soothing seems to help, crying it out doesn’t work - he just cries & cries.
Ive just been trying for over an hour, he eventually fell asleep in my arms but immediately wakes & screams when I put him down.
Please help ☹️💤

My 5month old has been doing the same thing, we had such a good run there for a while and now she's a sleep fighter.
I have had to go back to rocking her to sleep for her afternoon nap, and same, when I put her down she cries. Ive just had to pat her while she's lying down and stroke her hair. (She was born with a full head of dark curls!) While she has her dummy in.
Im sure you have tried every combo there was, but maybe this will help?

I’m having similar problem with my 6 month old baby. She doesn’t fight sleep as such but screams when she is put down. Even after being asleep so a long period of time if she’s then put down she screams.
I tried a lullaby light that plays low volume rhymes or soothing sounds and projects pictures on the ceiling. Unfortunately my little girl isn’t so keen on this but have heard it helps a lot of babies fall asleep as there not concentrating on falling asleep as such. I’ve heard a lot of people rave about “my hummy“ teddy’s to but am yet to try one.
