I have a question in regards to our 8wk old daughter, Seven.
Since birth, she has slept in bed with us. It started out with her in her bassinett next to the bed, but she feeds so often at night, its so much easier to keep her next to me and feed her during the night.
Up until about 5 weeks, we didn't have any issues getting her off to sleep, and I would go to bed when she fell asleep for the night - usually around midnight!
Recently though, Seven has started screaming and carrying on whenever I have decided it's bedtime. She will settle in arms, or in her sling, but the SECOND you lay her down, whether I am in bed or not, she wakes up, even if I have had her asleep for ages beforehand.
A couple of times she has nodded off at about 10pm and that has been great, but I can't keep staying up until 12, 1, 2 until she decides she's ready to sleep!
DF is telling me nightly to put her back into her bassinett because it is causing too much hassle having her in bed, but thats not going to stop her crying if she doesn't want to go to sleep is it? I sleep better and Seven sleeps longer if she is in bed with us.
So, I guess I'm just looking for some more tips on how to get Seven to sleep without her stressing and screaming.
Seven has reflux, but she is on medication for that now and it works wonders, she is much more settled, but still we have this teeny issue with getting off to sleep.
