How do you handle a baby that cries for 10-20 seconds and then stops? DD3 does this all.the.time and I am not sure if I should intervene or not. I have been trying to leave her be and let her work things out herself in attempt to get her to self soothe/settle because we have been having issues with her not being able to be rocked or nursed to sleep. She actually sleeps really well in her crib for naps but when I put her down for the night I never know what I will get. Sometimes she goes down without a peep and sometimes she will cry on and off in 30 second intervals. This may go on for 5 mins or 15 mins but always stopping in between. I can see her on the video monitor and she is putting a paci in her mouth and quieting down but then will start up again.
She also kind of does this in the middle of the night. The other night she started crying so I got up to nurse her and by the time I got to her room she settled down and went back to sleep. It happened like every hour and a half though. Last night the same thing happened when it was DH's turn to give her a bottle....every time he heated it up she went back to sleep - it happened like 5 times and she didn't end up getting the bottle until 6am!
Anyone have a baby like this?
