My 5 week old DD has been rather clingy from day 1 and has either co-slept or been in arms from the beginning, which I don't mind, except the last 2 days she is refusing to sleep by herself at all. I can usually get her down for a few naps of 2-3 hours each during the day which allows me to do some clothes washing, dishes and eat! I'm really struggling to even eat at the moment. I try and settle her at the boob and then gently put her down but she is awake and upset within 5 mins. She is so over tired at the moment and is having trouble nodding off even at the breast. Tonight I had a bath with her and gave her a massage to try and settle her but it was no good either. I've tried wearing her but its only good part of the time. Do i just put this down to the 5 week old wonderweek and ride it out? Or is there anything else I can do? I'm really struggling!
*Also my post is in the no-cry section and I am somewhat of an AP/natural parent so please don't suggest CIO/CC - thank you x
