    Is it a recent change?
    If recent change, then maybe she is going through a wonder week?

    I think you need to try to get her down as soon as you see any tired signs. Give her no chance to yawn again.
    Have you tried putting her to sleep in her normal bassinet and using a monitor?

    I'm sorry. In going to go against the grain. 9 hours is not enough sleep for a baby. She may be really overtired. She may be just waking up a bit and searching for you more.

    Otherwise have you tried putting her in the pram, and going for a walk??

    Gotta do what you gotta do.

    I hope you get some sleep soon. Good luck. It's an exhausting time. Things should settle for you though.

    Other thing to try is when you put her down when she's fallen asleep rest your hand on her chest until she's relaxed and or eyes drift shut. For my dd I do this on rough days and count to 100. I've found that to be the magic number that if she wakes on transfer will send her back to sleep. This way they don't go from the warmth of your chest and you to nothing. Also you could try putting a wrap or something on you to get your smell then if your wrapping her in it the familiarity if you is there to help her be comforted by
    Will add one other thing. By grizzles do you mean it is one of those half hearted broken cries so makes a sound, stops, 2/3 more, stops etc? If so I'd leave her a bit to see if she just goes to sleep as grizzles like that she just might settle from.

    I do hold her to my chest usually ends up for 30mins to 1 hr and she seems to be asleep, then when I transfer her about 3-4 mins after I put her down she grizzles.... I wait through the half hearted cries and funny noises in case she goes over but then when she is puce and screaming I have to pick her up again as she is not going to settle
