My baby is almost 10 weeks old. About two weeks ago, he started fighting sleep like crazy! All my old tricks (stroller rides, car rides, bouncing, shushing, lullabies, white noise, etc) that used to get him to fall sleep no longer work. I'm at my wit's end.
He's a super alert baby. He seems to only be able to be awake for 45 minutes before needing a nap. (Is that normal for his age?) I know how important it is to get him to sleep before he's overtired. If I go even 5 minutes past that point, it takes an hour or more of serious crying and me trying one thing after another before he sleeps... even though he's exhausted!!
I feel like the majority of my time with him these days is trying to get him to sleep. It's discouraging, exhausting and making me question my abilities as a mom.
Can anyone suggest any tips, please? Or did anyone else go through something similar around this time? I'm hoping to find some reassurance and hope.
