my 7 week baby always fights her sleep, it's such a dificult stage I have swaddled her and she hates it, she trys to get out but I hold her tight so she can sleep after screaming her head off and when she finally sleeps in my arm after I wait 20 min to an hour before putting her down she's right back up , HELP!!! I feel like I will lose it, she hates her swing, car rides, carrier or bouncer, I really don't know what to do anymore nothing seems to calm her down, she is exclusively breastfeed but I've been thinking in substituting to formula so we can both get a goodnight rest. does anyone know what else I can do? could it be growing sprout? purple phase? I hope this passes by fast, it's overhelming to do this same routine 24/7 everyday all by myself.

My sister and Daughter both suffered this situation. I encouraged them to supplement and place an electric fan in the room. The humming noise sooths babies. Think about when they were in the womb, the constant flow of your blood, the calming beat of your heart, it worked for all my children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Supplement, and soothing sounds....
