First time mom. My LO may be going through different sleep stages. She generally can sleep on her own at night, but the daytime is always up in the air with her. On a good day, she will nap in her bassinet and wake to feed. This can happen till usually around 6 PM...then she becomes fussy and tends to cluster feed. The "witching hour" can last up to 11 PM. On a not so good day, she refuses to nap in her bassinet. She will wake in like 10 minutes, and she wants me to hold her. I make sure she is fed, has clean diaper, is swaddled, try pacifiers, rocking/vibration , and white noise on these days. It doesnt seem to work. Doctor suggested just keep trying until she naps. Weird thing is some days she does and others she doesn't. Yes I want to establish good habits but on these days I let her nap on me and I bought a sling I am going to try. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? I do not know what to make of her being able to sleep at night and sometimes during day.
