First night home with newborn...and haven’t slept a wink! Need advice!
I brought my precious little girl home yesterday and she’s amazing. This is my first baby so although I read a ton beforehand, I really am learning as I go. Our first night at home was rough...I haven’t slept at all. I figured she would at least sleep for a few hours at a time, but no such luck. Between the feedings and diaper changes (and outfits - diaper blowout already!), she also was fussy in the bassinet. When I give her a pacifier she stops, but then it falls out of her mouth and I’m constantly putting it back in or she cries. I tried getting her to fall asleep holding her then put her back in the bassinet without the pacifier, but that doesn’t last long until she cries. I have barely laid down and haven’t slept. I’m holding her sitting up in bed so I can at least be comfortable for a few minutes and she’s content, however I know I can’t do this very long as I don’t want to get to a point where I fall asleep with her in my arms! Help! Any advice on how can I get her to sleep in the bassinet?? Seems like she’s only content and will sleep when I’m holding her!
