My little girl is 11 weeks old. Shes had a hard kick off to life & isnt the most settled of babys she has a cows milk protein allergy severe reflux which nothing seems to help with & colic. Her first few weeks were a blur of constant screaming & sleepless nights we switched to neocate & she greatly improved but is still quite unsettled. She sleeps pretty well at night always an 8 hour stretch & im assuming thats because acid production slows down at night but during the day she can only stay up for one to one & a half hours max then starts getting grizzly grumpy and very unsettled. My routine is once the tired signs start swaddle dummy cuddle place her in her bassinette once she starts the droopy eyes but still awake and 80 percent of the time she settles off to sleep on her own other times i need to rock & resettle twice at the most. She sleeps for 40 mins to 1 hour then shes up bright eyed smiling and the cycle starts again its very hard to get things done or to go anywhere so my MCH nurse reffered a visiting nurse who helps with sleep settling she was quick to tell me my baby probably wasnt tired i was reading her cues wrong she was probably still hungry and she should only be napping twice a day & up for atleast 3 hours before putting her to sleep!! I didnt agree but i tried keeping her up & by the second hour she was a big crying mess i fed her extra she threw up and was no happier. Im a young single mum shes my first & ive been really trying to listen to my baby & roll with what i feel she needs & i would rather sacrifice other needs & wants to make sure she gets the sleep she needs then have her overtired & miserable. Have i put my baby in a bad routine or am i doing the wrong thing & is the nurse right that i put her to sleep to often & should keep her up much longer? Help plz!
