My 5 week old baby won't sleep by herself at night. She will nap anywhere during the day - in her crib, her snugglenest, her vibrating chair, etc, but at night she will only sleep when being held. I have tried swaddling her (she hates it and cries until I free her arms), putting her in her vibrating chair, white noise, pingy child music, lullaby CD's, light, dark, putting her on one of my worn shirts, putting her next to me with my hand on top of her, everything!! At night, we sleep on the couch because she will only sleep on my chest. Obviously, I cannot go through my child's life holding her on the couch, and letting her cry it out is not an option for me. Please help!!
