My seven week old daughter stretches alot during her sleep. she stretches, grunts, and moves her arms everywhere. Which i believe is causing her to wake herself up. Dr say it's normal. I believe it is...but it seems she cannot sleep for long periods of time because of this. I tried swaddling her, but that only last for a two or three hours till she has to stretch. and if she cannot stretch she gets mad and cries. Is this a phase?? or is there anything i can do to help her? I thought if i feed her more formula then she would sleep longer than 3 hours at a time..i increase her formula from 3.5 oz to 4 ozs..but it seems she still wakes up to every 3 hours.
