do you swaddle?? My son was like that..I had a wrap for him and i used to carry him in it so i could have my hands free.. i would have problems with him napping since i coslept with him too and he didnt want to sleep alone and i found that swaddling him helped him sleep. It was the only thing..

Yeah she sleeps fine when I am holding her but as soon as I put her down for a nap she is usually up 10 mins later.. She usually sleeps 4-5 hours at night but wont sleep during the day.. I thought maybe it was cuz she was breastfed.. but that's not it..

What I would do is play a cd of soft nursery rhymes in her room. Rock her until she falls asleep. Then lay her down. Does she sleep fine in your arms but when you lay her down in her crib she freaks out? I would normally say let them cry but she probably too young for that right now. I would take a trip to Walmart. They have this bear there that makes a heart beat sound. It sounds really real and my son loved it! Whenever I had a hard time getting him to sleep, I would just turn that on and he would fall right to sleep. It's like $25 dollars I think. You can try singing to her too and shushing her. That ALWAYS worked for me. Hope that I could help honey. -Lexy
