Last night my 6 week old was awake at 11 to eat and I had to rock and bounce with her until 12:30 to get her back to sleep, then she awoke again at 2:30 for another feeding and we went through the same thing... Should I be doing this with her in the middle of the night? The toughest part is when she wakes she eats and then I have trouble putting her down to go back to sleep b/c she fusses and wants to be held until she falls asleep again... I go back to work in 2 weeks and this is going to be hard to do b/c I won't be able to take naps during the day and envision long tired days ahead, at least until she sleeps through the night.. which reminds me, when will that be??!! We seem to have a very fussy baby who sleeps less than 2 hours a day and at night! We are lucky if we get 3 hour stretches in her!
