Will she sleep with you? My DD was just like this (still a rascal with day sleeping at 7mths) and I was getting stressed etc. In the end I gave up and snuggled on The lounge with her while she slept. This can be tricky at times with a 3.5th old, but I found if we could have one decent sleep of at least an hour I was better able to cope with the catnapping. Good luck

Does she have reflux?? Have you talked to your gp??
Both dd and ds had reflux which would mess up their sleep if it wasn't taken care of...???

Yep my dd 11 weeks old is the same. I found the only thing that's helps is to let her fall asleep on me then move her but sometimes this doesn't work. The whole 'put them to sleep when drowsy' technique doesn't work for us.

Do you have older children? If not, try laying down with her to sleep. There's a good chance that she'll sleep longer if you're there with her, and you can have a rest too. If you don't want to do that, do you have a sling/carrier you can wear her in? Again she will probably sleep longer if close to you and you can make yourself a cup of tea and sit down for a while at least.

Have you tried a swing? It was the only placed dd would sleep in for the first few months...I learnt she liked to be upright (she had silent reflux but grew out of it thank god)

Both my boys in the early days would only sleep on me, in the swing or in the car.
I spent a lot of time on the couch cuddling a sleeping baby...easy when you have only 1 but not so easy when you have 2 (or more)!
Hugs xx it can be so draining in the early days. Is there someone who can come round and cuddle your bub while you get a rest? X

My son was the same. He had reflux. Switched him to lactose free milk as he had upset tummies too.
I would snuggle with him all day just so he can sleep. Couldn't sleep flat on his back the moment he was on his back he would know and cry.
The swings were a saver. It rocked him and I kind of cocooned him in it with blankets of my smell so he felt cosy and right and I was also able to lay him in his side as those swings are curved.
