So while this is completely normal for newborns and I'm not worried or stressed by it.... just wondering if anyone has any tips? My son did this but my daughter 7weeks is much more settled than my son so could try a few different things this time. She's getting more alert now.
If you have a newborn... Can you put them down awake? Do you let them cry? Is it too early to do this - CIO or self settle? I tried once to pat her under a mobile but she cracked it and I'm scared to try again. I think you're not supposed to push CIO/self settle until 6 months is that right? What's your experience with this?
At the moment she's keen to suckle on breast get drowsy and fall asleep in my arms. Then I put her down. Up until 3-4 days ago she would let me transfer her into bassinet and she would sleep 4 hour block over lunch.
But now wakes up immediate o r after a sleep cycle. Often Wakes with a vomit as she's refluxy. She sleeps wrapped up and slightly on her side on a baby wedge for her reflux.
She's doing really well at night can do up to 11 hour stretches. It varies. No dummy used as she doesn't cry very much and id prefer not to use one this time as it was a struggle getting it off my son.
Any ideas /opinions most welcome!!

My DD was the same, I just wore her. That was the only way I could get her to sleep during the day.
At night she was fine in the bassinet.

I used to have the bassinet close by me & with DD (now 16 weeks) I would rock, pat, cuddle, wear her, whatever it took to get her to sleep until about 10 weeks. Then she started to get woken up by noises around the house so I started putting her in her cot in her bedroom for day sleeps - I hold her for a few minutes to wind down, draw the blinds, put her in the cot, swaddle, dummy then walk out. Took about a week of having to go back in & settle her multiple times until she got it. Now I zip up the sleeping bag, eyes closed & away she goes. I think just sticking to the same routine for every sleep is what worked for us. I won't do CIO personally so no advice there. You could work out your own routine without the dummy. I only BF before bed at night, otherwise we do feed, play sleep. She's nearly 4 months so we'll see how the next few weeks go sleep wise, apparently that's when everything changes!
