not sleeping

well the last week she was sleeping really well. even falling asleep on her own in our bedroom in the bassinet. and the past 3 nights she slept in her bassinet all night. i fed her without picking her up because i didnt want to wake her too much. then last night was horrible. she wouldnt let me put her down and was exhausted when we went to bed at 1030. she was up until 1230am crying. i tried everything to soothe her. rocked her, fed her, gave her a paci. nothing worked. the minute i laid her on her tummy on my chest she fell asleep. so thats where she slept until we woke up at 4am to eat. then i got her to sleep in her bass. until 630am when DH's alarm woke us up. she ate and went back to sleep until 10! woo mommy got a great nap in but that was it for naps for the day. she wouldnt stay asleep no matter where i put her to sleep. she took like 4 30min naps and that was it. i barely just got her to sleep after trying for 3 hours. i feed her til shes full, make sure her diapers clean, i rock and cuddle her i swaddle her. swaddling mostly just pisses her off because she wants her arms free. she doesnt have gas, shes not cold (i tried wrapping her in a really good blanket, and she just ends up wrestling out of it.) ive tried no blanket thinking shes hot but she gets cold. ughh i dont know what happened. she was sleeping so well and for 2-3 hours at a time. now shes always exhausted and crying. this *****, and now were probably going to be stuck sleeping in the spare room so we wont keep DH up all night.
im friggen exhausted from trying to soothe her all day and from hearing her cry.

falling asleep


self soothing

Britton is starting to learn how to fall asleep on her own so it's been a big help while putting her down for naps and such. at night shes still a big crier though, i think its the darkness that bothers her because she can't see. she only wakes up once to eat, and takes about 30min to go back to sleep. shes been sleeping in her bassinet and not in bed at all with me or daddy. (sometimes ill let her for the last few hours if shes havin a hard time) she slept from 11-3 and 4-7 ish. so that was really nice but i think i feel just as tired as i did before. i think with her sleeping in bed with me i slept better! lol oh well
