Hey ladies, I need some advice. My LO is currently 8 weeks old and I am having the worst time getting him to sleep during the day. He is cranky and cries constantly and it's driving me crazy! The most frustrating part is he is the complete opposite at night. We have his routine down and come 8pm he is sleepy, I feed him his bottle, and he is out for 6 hours, then do a night feeding between 3-4am, and then he is awake between 7-8am. I have tried to start a routine during the day but it is not working. I feed him his bottle, we have play time, then I swaddle him and take him into his room. He will then fall asleep easily but is awake in 10 minutes crying and wide awake. Then the process starts all over again until it is time for him to eat. I cannot get anything done...no shower, no laundry, no cleaning. The only way he will stay asleep is if he is in his swing or I'm holding him. He does have reflux so I'm not sure if this is partly the problem. It is controlled with Prevacid twice a day. Any and all suggestions are appreciated because I can't hold him all day nor can they when he starts daycare in 3 weeks.
