I'm new to this so please forgive me if this post makes no sense!
DD is 6 weeks old and has co-slept with me since birth, she is my third baby but the first I've slept with, it worked really well initially as I loved not physically getting up to feed her at night, now however I'm having some problems.
She sleeps on her side and won't settle unless my boob is in her mouth (she's not really feeding most of the time just using it as her dummy) this means I'm also constantly laying on my side, unable to move and I've been getting the worst hip pain from sleeping in this position! My hips constantly hurt all day now! It's really disrupting my sleep now as I'm in pain from my sleeping position and continually helping her to re-attach so she'll settle.
So for the past few nights ive been trying to get her to sleep in her bassinet, which she will do during the day without a problem. But at night she goes crazy, screaming and getting so upset. DH and I try to settle her, by patting, singing, rocking the bassinet but nothing works and I will eventually give in and bring her into bed.
I'm scared now that because I've co slept with her for so long I won't ever get her sleeping in her bassinet. HELP
Any suggestions would be appreciated
