Newborn mother needs advice!!

Lately my 10 week old has been FIGHTING sleep during the day to the point where she's miserable and cranky. It's really hard to get her to take a nap and it makes it really hard to get anything done. I feel like I've tried everything including making the room dark and playing white noise...is this normal for her age? It seems like since she's become more aware of the world that she has a hard time relaxing and falling asleep. Any advice mom's?!

I am having the exact same problem with my 6 month old. We are currently transitioning the cot too so I try and get her to have her naps in there, currently using baby sleep bags and projectors but she only really likes to go to sleep on me or her dad 😔 and she does get very worked up about going to sleep on an eve! Let’s hope it’s just a phase 🤞

Could be gas? Gripe water?

Check out the app “wonder weeks”. It helps to track their developmental ‘leaps’ so you know when a tricky time is coming. You can also learn what baby is working on developmentally In the app. I definitely agree with pp on having a sleep schedule and a routine- for example, when my son wakes up he eats, then we have exciting play/Tummy time, then less stimulating play like talking or singing, change diaper, read him a book, turn on white noise, put him into swaddle, sing a short song and lay him down. Before bedtime at night, it’s a similar routine but we play for longer and it includes a bath. I make sure not to do anything stimulating between bath and bedtime and book when it’s nap time. That way, they associate both with sleeping. The most important thing to do is find what works for you, and be consistent. Baby will learn to associate whatever that routine is with bedtime. They’re so smart 😴🤓
