See, I messed up with my first (20 months now).-she won't sleep without me now, because she slept with me since birth,but my twins (five months)-do just fine with a bath, feeding, and white noise for an hour before bedtime. Both sleep through the night, till about 7 am

I would also sleep when baby is sleeping! Also try giving her a relaxing bath before bedtime. There are special baby bath gel that is relaxing. We also used bedtime baby lotion. It smells real good and is calming. I think its called Panthen Goodnight baby lotion and bath gel.

The first six weeks on my oldest daughter's life, I was awake and couldn't get much sleep. I was not breastfeeding but she was up every two hours. What I did was have my inlaws babysit one night or when I really needed sleep. I'm not sure if this is available in your area, where I live we have an agency that helps out new moms by sending a staff in for around three to four hours, so mom can get some sleep or have some alone time. Eventually, a child will start sleeping through the night.
