Is this normal? My baby is nearly 4 weeks old and will not sleep longer than 2 hours, I've tried everything, rocking her, putting her in a swing, nothing works. I'm trying the bath, bottle and bed routine now (midwife says a bit too young to start that yet) so every 2 hours she takes 2oz and I can't get her to drink anymore even after winding her, changing her.
I'm going out of my mind as I'm not sleeping. The next day I still can't do anything as she is such a light sleeper. Even washing the pots wake her up, I've been doing house work as normal to get her used to the sounds and noises then she just lays in crib, then she gets overly tired! I'm going out of my mind is this normal for a 3 week old? Thank you
