    Default Whineeeee

    This whole trying to get her to sleep in her crib is a bust. She will sometimes wake 4 times an hour. She doesnt want to be alone I think? All that money spent on a sleep expert down the drain.

    What about putting a light blanket in the dryer for a few minutes and snuggling her in?

    I'm sorry you're struggling so much. Some babies just aren't sleepers, I find. My ds never slept more than two hours at a time until he was about two, and even then only because the dr started medicating him to train his body.

    is co sleeping an option?. It might save you some sanity for now... until the baby is older. I co slept with my kids for an entire year because of similar problems. They switched to toddler beds no problem after about 1 year of age

    I was going to suggest this too. We let S sleep on her stomach (supervised, she's usually ON a person for this) and when my son was 6 months I remember he would be laid down on his stomach to sleep sometimes. Mostly during naps.. But he'd sleep longer stretches and startled less.

    She sleeps on her tummy sometimes, on her own will. I cant lay her down that way or she flips over. I honestly thinks she just gets scared being alone. Even during the day if i'm out of her sight she screams. We're back to cosleeping after midnight. - where she only wakes occasionally so we know she can do it

    I gave up pretty quick. I co-slept for around 11 months with each and then they WANTED to sleep on their own.

    Right now it sucks a lot, but just know one day these horrible nights are going to be a memory, DD was the worst sleeper and we co-slept forever and she would never go down on her own I would be begging her to go to sleep cause I was so tired, finally by about 1 we got her into a bedtime routine and she would honestly go to bed around 5:30 or 6 and only wake up once through the night, I was in heaven DS is doing pretty much the same thing doesn't go to sleep for the night until after 11 up every hour last night and pretty much the same deal every other night. I just try to remember it's not forever.
