    Default At my wits end!!!

    So I spend about 10-15 mins putting my 3 month old dd to sleep just for her to get woken up 10 mins later!!!
    It's Like everytime she goes off to sleep her 17 month old brother and 4 yr old sister decides to make any noise possiable from just crying for no reason or fighting etc!!
    It's starting to do my head in!! I then end up with a cranky over tired baby because this happens all day everyday!!
    Even when the other 2 are at kindy she still wakes cause she has gotten into this pattern!! By the end of the day she is soooo difficult to get to sleep cause she's just soooo cranky!!!
    While she's awake they are off playing together but by this time all sleep is out the window!!
    I don't know how to get her to sleep longer!! And because she's cranky I then can't put her down without her screaming!! It's a nightmare at times!!!

    What do I do ???
    Any ideas??

    Don't put her 'down', just wear her if you have a sling??She will probably nod off through movement.

    I don't have a sling!! I have a carrier but I have never figured out how to use it comfortably it feels like she isnt close enough to my body and all lose!!
    Might need to invest in a sling

    Oh yay! Hope it works for you. I went through 4 different slings/carriers before I got my Ergo which I loved.

    Have you tried some white noise to drown out any sudden noises a little?When my dd is napping i turn on the bathroom fan near her room to help drown out any household noises that might wake her. Or perhaps some soft lullaby music? That way if she wakes, she'll be softly soothed back to sleep with the music.

    Yeh i second the music/back ground noise... We pretty much always have music on - to the point DD can sleep through a dinner/house party!

    I always have the tv on!!! But it seems once she's awake she's awake!!!
    She does sleep well at night though, but that would due to lack of sleep during the day
