my 7week old baby wont settle properly til 4 or 5am every morning. than she sleeps fine til i wake up at either 11am or 1pm depending on how tired i am. than she wants to sleep again. ive tried keepin her up in the day so she tired at night. but its not working. she wants to go back to sleep in the day. thn from about 5pm or 6pm she will be awake n sleep for an hour here and an hour there. as th night gets later, its about 10 or 20mins. ive gotta keep gettin up. she grunts and groans and wakes up. i rock her bassinet to get her back to sleep. lay back in bed, than she wakes again. this happens til 4am or 5am. she used to do this throughout the day as well. but thats stopped i think coz she is so exhausted. if i get her up she is happy. sometimes she has pain. so i try water and burping her. its just gettin hard and im desperate to get some sleep at normal hours!! we thought she had colic or silent reflux coz this was happening 24/7. ut now its mainly from 5pm til 5am. please can anyone help with advice??..
