    I'd say maybe reflux too. Even if bub isn't throwing up, it could be silent reflux. So avoid bouncing and rocking and try bum patting whilst in arms instead, to settle.

    If you can get bub to sleep this way, make sure you wait 20 minutes until they are in a deep sleep before trying to put them down. And try elevating the head of the basinette or cot when you do put them down.

    Do you wrap bub? A nice tight cosy feeling should help, and as a PP suggested try some white noise. I just put a radio on a blank channel so you just hear static.

    If none of this works, I second formula top ups as bulb may just be hungry.

    You have my deepest sympathy! My DD was exactly the same. The biggest thing that saved my sanity was learning to feed whilst lying down. I got to rest while she got to feed/sleep.

    Default My 3 day old has been awake 11 hours straight

    On around day 4 of my baby's life, when my milk really came in, we were up ALL night. He was screaming the house down, doing heaps of poos and was VERY unsettled. He was fine the next night - it was just his guts getting used to the milk.

    Definitely try feeding lying down. As others have said you may get some rest this way. The only way hubby and I got through the first 5 days was taking turns sleeping with dd on our chests. Try elevating the head end of the bassinet that worked for us. Also put something of yours in there so it smells of you.
    It's hard hang in there it will get better.

    We are going much better tonight, as a pp said it was just her tummy getting used to my milk. I've got to make sure she stays awake long enough for a decent feed then burp her before she goes down. If she wakes up again I've found the rocking chair plus a dummy works sometimes.

    And she has put herself to sleep in her bassinet a couple of times today, which is great too.

    Thank you again everyone for the suggestions though, I really appreciate the support on here.
