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?!

Maybe your baby has colic ? You should try Gripe water . It works like magic .

Omg girl, me too. My baby is almost 7 months and suddenly he doesn’t want to nap and fights it too. The swing was my go too. Now I have to wait till he’s tired enough for me to put him in it. He’ll reach out and grab the side of the swing and stop it as he’s looking at me. He grunts at me and gives me dirty looks as I’m trying to get him to sleep, it’s kind of cute 😂 but annoying. I started to swaddle him again and that has helped. I have natural oils and I have just massaged him and rubbed him down, he likes that. I try to set a mood and really relax him. Make sure her belly is full too. I noticed when I feed my son a larger portion of food he slept better too. It’s trial and error. What works one day might not work the next. You’ll figure her out. Good luck. 👍🏼

If she’s still really fussy you might want to look into silent reflux. My daughter has this. It’s reflux but she doesn’t spit up - it makes it up her throat enough to cause pain. The doctor can give you meds to try and see if this helps. Good luck!

This can be a developmental thing for age. When my little onr was this age she would fall asleep on me while feeding but as soon as I put her down she waw wide awake. They like mumma at this age. If you have a carrier or sling it will be your best friend. It doesn't last forever. If you haven't already, download the Wonder Weeks app
