My three and a half week old daughter refuses to sleep anywhere but with me, which I really do not want to do but have been because I'm so sleep deprived.
When she first came home she would sleep for a few hours in the crib, feed and at night would usually go back down for a couple hours. We then went to stay with my parents for a few days when she was two weeks old and she would not sleep in the play pen, so after two nights of no sleep I desperately moved her into bed with me. Since getting back she slept one night for a few hours in the crib but otherwise hasn't and will not nap in the crib at all despite the fact that I put her in there everyday. I have tried putting my shirt in with her, warming with a heat pad before she goes in, I bought a cosleeper which she also won't stay in in hopes she would sleep in it if she was closer to me. I really want her to sleep on her own as I'm nervous about bed sharing, but am not sure what else to do since I think she's too young to cry it out... Any suggestions would be appreciated!
