I have a 1 month old daughter and its gotten to the point where she won't sleep anywhere but on my chest. I don't want to sleep with her on me, so I haven't been getting much sleep in the last couple days. She could be completely passed out and I'll put her in her bassinet and within 20 minutes she'll be wide awake and screaming, so I'll pick her up and within seconds she'll be passed out again. I don't know what to do and I'm starting to turn into a zombie. I've had to start staying on the couch in the living room at night so that my hubby can get enough sleep so he can work the next day. I need recommendations on what to do. I don't want to do the cry it out thing (for one she's way too young for that, and I can't handle hearing her crying like that). I can sometimes get her to sleep in her little bouncy chair thing, but I don't want to leave her there while I'm sleeping because of how her head sits on her chest, I'd really rather her not suffocate from the weight of her head. Please please help, I can't handle this much longer...I need sleep!
