My daughter is 6 weeks old now and we have got our day routine all worked out but it's the evening time that has got me courious, she will be awake from about 7 - 11 or even 12pm. i feed her then she fall's asleep on me so i put her to bed then bing eyes wide awake, she wont go to sleep so i try to let her cry for a little, no that wont work then burp and all the things you can think of. Still wont go to sleep so more feed's and the same thing happens, so we go through the whole precess again. I'm just wondering is it normal for a 6 week old baby to stay awake for that long? i have even tried a dummy she wont take to it and am needing to find a solution as this is a big time frame that i need back to get things done and look after my jealous 3 1/2 year old son.
