Thank you, i have changed her next to me crib to her moses basket at a night to see if that helps and upped her feeds as she is prem xx
@Jenna I don't think a lot of this would have worked 4 weeks ago honestly. She just wouldn't leave me at all. And I've introduced these 1 by 1 to not overwhelm her too much. Keep at it darling! You will get there! I'm enjoying getting 3 solid hours now 😅
@Jenna it's a process darling! I'm 5 weeks in now and she's only just getting there! This week we've managed 3 hours a night 🤣🥰 little wins! Things that have helped me... I have my maternity pillow in the bottom of the basket in a u shape and I put her legs in there/ arms up/ head near top of basket (she won't be swaddled) so it feels like she's being held still. At the top of the basket every 2 days I rotate whatever top I've been (not) sleeping in and tuck all the edges under the mattress so she can smell me. Ollie owl heartbeat noise on. I've got a rotating shape night light thingy and I have that on red so she has something to look at if she wakes. She tends to watch this for a bit and self soothe. Just started doing warm baths or wipe downs every eve before bed. Then a feed, winding, cuddles and story. She's going down a lot quicker now. She does have reflux so her mattress is now on a slight incline with a towel rolled up underneath.
I am in the same boat my new born is 5 days old and she won’t sleep at nihjt unless on me x
@Jenna it's really hard. The first month I felt like a walking zombie but she's a lot more settled this past week and a half. You've got this lovely! Xx
