Default Going Down Stairs

Hey Everyone,
I have around a 5 month (20 weeks and 1 day) old puppy born on December 11th. She can go up stairs fine and down most stairs... like the stairs connecting our front door to our side drive but when i comes to the stairs that connect the first and second floor she can't even take a step. They are hollywood stairs so they have rafters in between each step and there is a platform halfway. I taught her how to go up them last week and now she is going up and getting stuck and I have to carry down a 45lb dog to the bottom. I have tried many things including treats and everything. She can go right up to the first step but when I try to teach her with a leash she just goes crazy and starts barking. Any advice would be helpful!
Thanks
