Abby is 3mo 3wkd old. She used to sleep through the night from almost birth till 3 weeks ago when i started her in her crib from her bassinette. Her naps during the day were only 30-45mins, which was fine because she slept so well during the night.
Now she is up 4 times a night. She goes to bed around 8-830. She gets up about 1230, 230, 430, and 630, then gets up for the day about 730-830. Now she naps for 1-2 hours late morning and then again late afternoon.
She eats during the day about every 1.5-2hrs and then at night she makes it about 4 hrs and then every 2 hrs after that. I feed her everytime on each breast. She used to go through the 8 hours without eating at night. Not sure what's going on.
So a couple days ago I would not let her sleep as long during the day so she'd sleep hard at night. NOPE, she is on the same schedule, up 4 times, except now she is back to her 1/2hr naps during the day so she's grumpy.
On top of that, she will not nap on her own. She fights it ALL THE TIME! I don't expect her to all the time, but sometimes I would think she would just want some quiet time in her crib with her mobile and fall asleep on her own.
I am just exhausted and she doesn't nap long enough for me to try and get some sleep.
Any thoughts? What am I doing wrong?
