My lo has a hard time sleeping. I have to hold her all night in my bed so she can sleep and she will sleep for 9 hours straight with a couple of feedings in there. I know they say to put her down when drowsy, well I do then she wakes up and have to do the process all over again and eventually she gets to fussy to go to sleep. So I lay her down and she talks and talks. She is tired I know it. She rubs her eyes and yawns. Today she had a 30 minute nap. Not the norm. I don't know what to do. Now I try swaddling she don't like it I know she doesn't. But I can't lay her down because her movement wakes her up. I cry every night I try putting her to sleep. Any suggestions. Oh and she has really bad gas and acid reflux.

Seems like she might be going through a growth spurt to if she took a half hour nap. Have you tried maybe just putting her in some footie pjs instead of swaddling? My daughter hated being swaddled kuz it made her to hot. With my daughter I just found that oversleeping has been my best friend. They have a cosleeping bar that goes on your bed so they can't roll off.
For the bad gas maybe try some gas drops before bed. Hope this helps you :)

We do the footie pjs. My faiths is 3 months so she still has the jerk thing that wakes her up, that is why I hold her when she sleeps.
