I've tried giving her the bottle.. she cries so much she hyperventilates! She has a fever and a cold now so I don't want to start her on cereals yet - I bough Milupa rice cereal for when she gets better. I put her on the breast, she falls asleep right away and pulls off on her own, then as soon as I put her in her crib or her playpen or her chair she wakes up all happy and laughing. I am SOOO tired, she still wakes up 2-3 times in the night to feed so I think I'm getting 5-6 hours of sleep every night, and because she doesn't nap, neither do I. HELP!

Have you tried wrapping her when you put her down for a sleep? It sounds exactly like my wee girl, I watched her one day and noticed she would startle and wake herself up, we started wrapping her and she was a whole new baby!

So I wrapped her in her Pooh blanket at 2:15... and it was 4:30 by the time she woke up! I guess all she needed was to be wrapped up! She drank again at 6:15 for a snack, then at 7:45 for bed.. and fell asleep right away. She's still in bed and hasn't made a peep :) Thanks for the advice!!

A friend of mine suggested that too, it's just she breastfeeds before going for a nap, otherwise she won't sleep, and I'm afraid she'll wake up when I put her down to wrap her.. I'm going to try it at her next nap time though.. thanks :)
