My baby is only sleeping approximately 45min-60mins per day sleep (x 3) if I'm lucky. This sleep habit has only occurred in the last week, prior to this week I was usually getting 1-2hrs per sleep. What makes it more tiring is that she will not go to sleep unless I'm holding her or rocking her. I know she's tired because I've fed her,changed her, burped and played with her, is usually up for approx 2hrs or just over and plus she gets a glazed look. I'm not sure if she's teething as she's only 4months but when I checked her gums they looked a little flared (sort of white) and I feel bumps in her gums but she doesn't have red cheeks, she thrashes sometimes. Could this be contributing to why she isn't sleeping so much through the day. Night sleeps have also decreased as well.

my guess is that she is teething, my son was the same at just about 3 months. he is not even 4 months and he has cut a tooth and working on another, his cheeks don't get red, but he is teething. That might be what is going on with your daughter.
