Any suggestions for co-sleeping with my restless 4 month old baby girl. She's been sleeping with us since day one and it has worked out really well until recently. The last several weeks she's been very restless, tossing back her head back and forth, kicking etc. Since I'm tuned to her every sound, I'm not getting much sleep. Also, she used to settle easily after nursing down, but now she seems to wake up every time I try to move her out of my arms.
I really want to continue co-sleeping. The times I've tried laying her down on a mattress beside my bed she's only woken up more... Not sure what to do next, or if this is just something I need to live through, hoping each night for a better sleep.
So, your suggestions will be appreciated.
