    She is so so much better!! She's going about 4h between feeds overnight now!! However the daytime still challenges us - it takes hours to get her down, then she only sleeps for maybe 1/2 an hour. I try to resettle her but she'll have none of it, but at least she only screams when I'm trying to make her sleep! If I leave her be she just chats & gurgles. I wish she'd sleep but it's a walk in the park compared to our previous battles!!!

    Fantastic news!! Slowly she will get better with day time naps too. It must feel great for you to have some sleep

    The main thing was cutting out dairy. She just started sleeping at night all of a sudden. Also I relaxed & realised its not me or my fault. She is now a lot more relaxed & has started sleeping in the day today - go figure?!

    Did you end up going to tresillian?

    The first 6 weeks are very full on, but when they crack their first smile at about 6-8 weeks, you'll instantly forget all the stress, worry and exhaustion.

    Yeah we did but their methods make me feel pretty uncomfortable. I'm supposed to comfort dd without picking her up in her cot unless she gets really distressed & try to get her to sleep. I'm not going to sit next to my child letting her get totally upset before cuddling her! So I told the lady when she did her follow up call that we're not doing that & I'm happy for dd to sleep on her beanbag wherever I'm going to be & feed to sleep if she wants - they were also insisting she sleep in the cot & no boobs allowed. She was weird with me but I don't care - dd is sleeping ok in my book & we're both happy so that's what counts.

    I can understand why you would think your a bad mum, as a new mum myself there were alot of things i worried about not doing properly, even now when i cannot settle my 4 week old i become frustrated and anxious and worried that im not a good mum myself. Its hard to suggest what may work for you as each new baby is different the best thing to do is trial and error, im sure that with support from your local gp, even from other mum groups and what not you will be able to come up with something that works for you and your baby girl. I found with my little man he likes to listen to instrumental music, the kind on the baby toys and dolls, soft gentle and very repetitive, that and a gentle rock and hes sound asleep.

    Goodluck i hope you find a medium for you and your bub

    Go with your gut, you won't regret it! My two DDs were tough sleepers and till 6 months I rocked, cuddled and fed them to sleep. They are both great sleepers now and settle themselves. I will never regret all those cuddles and sleepy boob feeds, that's what we are there for
