My little girl is 2 weeks old today and I'm already feeling like I can't take it anymore. I hear all kinds of contradicting things - don't sleep train until 4 months, sleep train as soon as possible, don't use CIO because that makes the baby lose trust in you, use CIO because it's the only thing that works... blah blah blah.
My baby gets SO wired around 9 at night and stays wired all night. As a matter of fact, she's STILL awake right now (it's almost 11am) and has been for the majority of the night. If I'm lucky enough to get her to sleep, it's while she's laying on me, or nursing. I can't set her down or she wakes up and starts screaming. And I feel like I can't ask my husband to help because he has to work all day and he needs his sleep. I feel like I'm about to lose it, though. I've been in tears numerous times because I'm so tired and she just won't stop fussing (or crying, or screaming, as the case may be).
What do I do??
