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.

Do you have an infant carseat you can buckle her into to sleep? We had to do that because my little girl also had reflux. Also, the straps seem to feel firmly re-assuring to baby! And finally, you know baby is safe then if you need to let her cry a little so you can go in another room for a quick break yourself! (Just make sure the carseat is on the floor)

That is what she has been sleeping in a sleeper but she is to big for it now. She still takes nap in them but I will be taking it down soon

Try putting her in a rock and play or a napper that attaches to a pack and play. It cuddles them and also has them at an angel to help with the reflux.
