Help! Seriously! I have a 7 week old daughter who refuses to sleep at bedtime. So here's the story. She was able to go to bed between 9pm- 1030 pm since we brought her home up until last week. When it comes to bedtime, she has all the signs of being tired and when trying to put her to bed like the usual way she just won't sleep. She would cry she would fuss. She's so tired she won't breast feed. At some point she eventually does. Sometimes she will sleep but wakes up10-15 minutes later crying. It's very frustrating because she's up until 1 am sometimes until 230am. But thankfully once she does sleep at least she sleeps for a good 5 hours or so then wakes up has a drink then back to bed for another 3 hours. This just started, rocking swaddling dim lights bath I do everything lots of love and patience, she still doesn't want to sleep at bedtime. She's so overtired that she can't seem to settle. I battle it out with her for a good 5 or 6 hours. Is anyone else going through the same thing? Any advice? She just finally settled to bed @ 2:03 am to be exact. Yikes.
