Hi all, I'm struggling a bit with my 8 week old and think I would benefit from having a consultation with someone about sleep/settling/reading my baby. She's pretty good overnight now - wakes up twice to feed between 10-8 and goes back to sleep generally quite well. During the day though she is really struggling to sleep and I'm at my wits end. I don't want her in the carrier all day just so she can nap. And she's a much happier baby when she has a couple of 2hr sleeps during the day, she just struggles so much and I struggle to help her. I find in struggling to read her cues of hunger, tiredness, discomfort from wind etc and I think she gets way over tired and then can't sleep and I just keep feeding her to get her to sleep only to have her wake within minutes. I'd like to start getting into some kind of routine too but not tooooo structured.
does anyone have any experience with the consultants at
I think we'd prefer a gentle no-cry approach with some routine but not too strict. Any advice greatly appreciated!!
