I am breastfeeding our 9-week-old who has been "feisty" from the get-go. She has always been and is a great eater, but not a very good sleeper. If you are familiar with Dr. Sears, she is definitely a "high need" baby...but we love her for it:) She will only nap in my arms or in the swing, which is fine since she'll typically sleep for 2-3 hours in the swing in the morning. At night, I've taken to letting her sleep with me since it's easier on both of us. I have no problem with her sleeping with me now, since she sleeps better but we still aren't getting much sleep. She seems exceptionally "gassy" at night, which causes her to toss and turn. Any suggestions on what I can do? What should I work on eliminating from my diet?
