so baby girls slepping is getting worse and worse.
the 1st few days home from the hospital she slept great, even slept a 5 hr stretch at night. then she started needing to sleep with me at night time but would nap fine by herself during the day in the livingroom or bassinet. last week i would put her in her bassinet still awake with the vibration on and just walk around the room/clean so there woul be some noise and she would fall asleep. now (1 month old)shes gotten to the point where she will fight sleep and sit here and cry for 2 hours. then she'll be overtired so she wont let me put her down for more then 5 min which is extremely hard because im exclusively pumping breastmilk every 2-4 hrs and she wont sit by herself, not even in her boppy or vibrating chair. i let her cry in her bassinet once because she was so overtired and she fell asleep after 3 min. she slept in the carseat for an hour on and off today while i ran errands and right now she finally fell asleep in my arm for 15min(so far) im afraid to put her down.
she did this same this yesterday and ended up finally sleeping from 3-7 then kept me up from 10-1 which is usually when she sleeps the best at night.
any advice? im really dying here.
