Having trouble getting my daughter to sleep.

She's 11 weeks old and won't nap unless she's being held. As soon as I put her down she wakes up. If she does fall asleep not being held, it's usually only for 10-15 mins at a time. Over night she refuses to fall asleep before 11 PM and only sleeps a 2-3 hours at a time. She was sleeping 4-5 hours.She does eat about 6 oz between 9:30-10 and has another bottle when she wakes up in the middle of the night. I can't figure out what would make it change and I can tell she's exhausted.

Thank you Brandy. Mine was 3 weeks early as well. Hopefully both of our little ones get past the not sleeping soon.

I feel like I wrote this post. We're in the exact same boat, except she's 14 weeks old (though gestationally 11 weeks - she was born 3 weeks early). The only minor difference is that she's in a great mood from about 8 PM - 11 PM, sometimes even later. She coos, giggles, and "chats" all night long. I myself am a night owl and am wondering if it's just genetic.

Stay strong. You're not alone.
