My DD is 10 weeks old today and I'm still breastfeeding. I've been seeking help regarding settling her (as its always so hard to get her to sleep) and also when and how to feed her.
I've been going to Child and Youth health (SA) to their settling class and day service to help with strategies on how to get her to sleep and they have taught the feed, play sleep routine where I'm not supposed to rock her or feed her to sleep, but put her down tired and pay or rock her till she sleeps.
Well that worked for a week and a half but now I can't get her to sleep after her plays at all or for very long.
So I turn to my ABA group today and they believe in feeding whenever DD cries (even if its only been an hour since the last feed) and to carry her around on me if I can't get her to sleep.
Well that completely contradicts the CYH advice, which I tend to prefer as it means we can start setting good habits early as I don't want her to be an over dependent and clingy child, but I'm at a loss as to how to get her to sleep when my CYH routine falls apart and she doesn't sleep.
This is a bit of a vent on how i never know what to do when i get such conflicting info.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do when she won't sleep when the feed play sleep routine falls apart? Is there any harm in breaking it when she goes through unsettled periods and spend a few days rocking her to sleep like I used to?
Thanks in advance!!!
