I had my daughter on the 28th of December and that was the last time I slept by myself. I don't know what to do she will not sleep in her bassinet. She has to sleep latched to fall asleep which means I have to sleep lop sided. I just want her to sleep in her bed. Iv tried it all wrapping her, keeping her super warm, bathing her before bed but that wakes her right up, music; nature sounds, heart beat sounds, waiting till she is deeply sleeping before I put her in her bed. But she wakes up in no time like 5 mins. so I never have a break. I know I need to feed her every 3 hrs so that I understand but I should be able to nurse her then put her in her bed until the next feeding. She wont take a soothy which would be perfect because she wants to suck but she wont take it. What do I do? Is there a trick? How do I get her to take a soothy? I just am at my wits end. My son is perfect always slept through the night from day one, took a soothy, and nursed easy, just such a easy child. But he is now 15 mths old and up at 8am and I need to sleep to be with them both. Help? She sleeps so good during the day. But the lights go out and she is bright eyed and bushy tailed. More than she is all day.
