    I'm looking forward to those days FuddyMum.
    We're nearly there, she's 7.5 weeks but roll on those happy days.
    She's doing a lot better than she was on Monday which is a relief.
    I'm a bit up and down myself.
    Some days I feel like I'm coping but others I dont, it doesn't take much to make me feel like I'm not coping so that's also worrying me a bit.
    A routine is exactly what we need but there's no hope in her learning anything now, she's too young.
    One good thing though, she is more or less self-settling in her bouncy chair.
    Now, I have to bounce her with my foot but it's better than the carrier because I can slip away and get things done. I just can't do anything with her stuck to me.
    I know some people love that but I hate it.
    As for the haze, I'm still I the thick of it.
    I tried posting a letter for the second time this week...first time I forgot the address and today I forgot the letter, even though it has been in my bag all week.
    Durrrrr!

    So we are a MONTH at this sh!tty day time sleeping routine.
    I can't do anything in the house and I can't get out of the house for more than an hour at a time.
    I'M LOSING MY MIND!

    She needs something.
    Is there such a thing as a one on one baby whisperer in Sydney?
    I don't have the time, patience, or head space to read a book and implement techniques that might not even work only to start all over.
    She needs a hands on approach NOW before I drop dead with stress.
    We're up since 5am doing this merry-go-round for the fourth week running.
    She just can't seem to BE.
    She is 11 weeks old now, surely there has to be something going on with her that she won't sleep for me? Anyone with an 11 week old, how long does your little one stay awake for before wanting to sleep again?

    What are her poos like? Does she feed well or still always wriggling around when feeding? How is the breastfeeding going otherwise?

    She doesn't poo every day.
    She had an explosive one yesterday but up until that she only passed a little bit twice last week.

    Breastfeeding is going OK.
    Every two hours.
    I seem to have nothing to give her today though.
    Well it feels like that.
    Trying to settle her here since 11:25

    I had to walk away from her screaming there earlier.
    A couple of minutes after that post above, she self-settled in her bassinet.
    OH PLEASE LET THIS BE IT

    I don't think it's reflux Meredithgrey, night time she has no problem feeding and going straight back to sleep. She sleeps on her back in bed beside me.
    She just can't seem to stay asleep during the day though.
    I'm hoping she's ready to move on to some sleep training.
    At this point in time I'm not opposed to some CIO.
    She's crying a lot as it is and still not getting the sleep she needs so I may as well.
    We're both miserable and the kids are suffering when I can only leave the house for an hour at a time. And even that doesn't always work out.
    Any time we did venture out over the holidays it ended badly.
    If she would nap for a good solid block of time once or twice a day, we could start to get back to some kind of normality.
    Coming up to three months of chaos here and everything is suffering.

    It's a good sign that she is in there now with no props, no rocking or white noise.
    It might be from sheer exhaustion but it's something new.

    I feel your pain! My 11week old is finally becoming more settled after 2mths of all of us really struggling. As for a baby whisperer there is a lady in the western suburbs (Penrith) who does private or small group sleep and settling sessions and home visits. I haven't used her but friends have and say she worked wonders for them. Not sure if I am allowed to post details on here but I will Pm them to you if you're interested.

    How does she settle/sleep in the pram? The ol' running the pram backwards and forward over a power cord trick? Or both getting out and going for a walk/to the park with the older kiddos?
