As I expressed in some of my other comments in threads that I wanted to get a sleep thread going. How do you get you LO to sleep? Tricks? Recommendations? Certain things to avoid? Any suggestions are recommended.
My problem is that my little girl goes down in the basinett for about 20 mins and then wakes up crying. I try to feed again, console her and put her back. She wants to sleep on me for the most part. She has had a couple good nights, but I find now that she now during the day won't even go in her swing and wants to be warm on mommy.
Things I've tried:
swaddling- worked the first couple of nights but she seems like a smart cookie.
Dark rooms during night, blinds all open during the day
white noise and a night light - she seems to like this but alone this doesn't soothe her
getting her into a deep sleep first and then putting her down.
Putting her sleep sack(halo swaddle sleep
sack) under the covers to get warm before putting on
I usually feed one side, change and then feed the other side. If she goes to the bathroom again, I only change again if she poops.
I understand that at this young (2 weeks old) they don't really have any established schedule or training per say. But I am so not prepared for cosleeping and do not feel comfortable as I toss and turn.
Looking forward to more responses
I did see in the other thread that I should put in a Tshirt that I wore that day so it smells like me. I am also going to try the water bottle in the basinett first tonight as well as put her special sleep sack in my shirt today so it smells like me.
I just get so anxious for night now and dread anytime past 9pm knowing it's going to awful.
