I'm really hoping you might have some advice for me.
My 4 week old DD will not sleep during the day unless she's being held. This isn't so bad at the moment as my DH is still off work and can help with our toddler DD1 while I'm cuddling DD2 but he goes back to work soon and there's no way I can hold her all day on my own while caring for DD1.
The thing that really confuses me is that she is a great sleeper at night, I can put her down wide awake any time from 8:30pm onwards and she'll go to sleep on her own no worries. We are getting a 4-6 hour stretch from her for her first night sleep and then she'll wake 3-4 hourly from there. So, i know she can put herself off to sleep when she wants to.
During the day is a different story though, I can't put her down, even if she's fast asleep in my arms - she'll wake within 5 minutes and cry.
Any advice. I have a baby carrier but I'm torn about using it for sleeping during the day in case she gets hooked on it. I'd really like to find a way to get her to happily sleep in her cot during the day.
Any advice is welcome! Thanks in advance!
