    Default Co-sleeping, what happens in the day?

    I have a 2 week old daughter who is very settled and hardly cries. We co sleep during the night and she is waking twice to be fed. During the day she is more than happy to sleep in my arms or in the hug a bub which she loves. During the day I can't get her to sleep in her cot and I've tried putting her down in our bed as well but she still wakes shortly after.

    So my question is what do other co-sleepers do during the day?

    thanks

    Wow you're doing well!! During the day I had DD basically live in a swing when she was that little, anything that is snugly like a capsule could also work. I'm thinking your bub is used to being snuggled and maybe the "openness" feel of the cot/bed wakes her...

    1) you can feed lying down and then sneak away.

    2) pram/car capsule

    3) carrier

    We only co sleep with dd2 as in bed share between 4-6am. Other wise we room share at night and both girls sleep independently in their own rooms for day naps.

    Have you tried swaddling her during the day?

    I had (have) that same problem with dd. Shes now 2 and I just feed her on the bed snuggled up and then sneak away! It takes time tho and she used I wake up not long after I left but now she sleeps fine. Have you tried leaving your shirt in bed with her so she can smell you?? I sometimes prop dd up with a pillow just so she thinks I'm next to her but of course she is alot older than your bub so it might not be safe to leave her with loose clothing or pillows. It's hard op! Actually I'm typing this while trying to pry myself away from my sleeping dd but she literally keeps sucking me back in!! haha

    Yes I've tried swaddling but she fights to get her arms out which wakes her up. We also use a love me wrap. For the past 2 weeks all she has done is sleep but now that she is becoming more alert she is harder to get to sleep in the day.
    i think I will try feeding her lying down and see how we go

    I do the fed to sleep in bed and sneak away thing if that doesn't work I wear them. Hopefully I get a bit of shut eye at the same time though!

    I fed in my bed then would sneak away once they were asleep.

    I babywear, feed/sleep on the couch and go on the internet, or feed and sneak away in our bed, or nap with bub

    I used a hammock Or a mattress on the floor, and I'd get up when she was asleep. But the hammock was the best thing ever
