I have a 9 week old baby girl who will only fall asleep in our arms

Please help. I have a 9 week old baby girl who will only fall asleep in our arms. As soon as she is in the cot or close to the cot, she will wake herself & look like she has never been sleeping but is still very grizzly. She likes to fight sleep, so she won`t just sleep if we put her in the cot dozy. I try to comfort her while she lays in the cot but she will work herself up to crying until we pick her up.
Please help me. Thanks.

Answer: Hi, Try following our It`s Time To Sleep settling program it will teach baby to sleep independently. Try to incorporate a feed/play/sleep routine so you can catch tired signs. Cheers, Maree
