my girls did this so i put them in the bouncer during the day where they are alittle more stimulised. and then only put them in there cot when it was night time i only had to do this for acouple of days or up to a week so it resets there body clock to start sleeping better at night rather than getting there good sleep during the day. both my girls where more active in the whomb at night as well as sone as my head hit the pillow they would start kicking and moving so i put two and two together and just assumed it was normal to them to be a wake at night. i hope this helps

Oh and will she be happy to lay there watching a mobile or toys ect? If she does then maybe feed her, change her and put her in bed with a mobile I know you can get ones with lights on them. Even if you only get yourself another hour of sleep.

Try actually stimulating the baby to stay awake during the day... play with her, talk to her a little more or even try the worlds greatest invention for every baby i've ever known... BABY EINSTEIN!

bottle or breastfed?



You can't force a baby to sleep but you can try and adjust your feeding routine so she may sleep then instead.
