My little girl is now 14 weeks old and sleeps through the night (which is great) but she only goes to sleep in my arms. I have to either feed her and she falls asleep in my arms which doesn`t happen too often or she is screaming her lungs out and I have to hold her tight, pat her bottom and eventually she will calm down and fall asleep. I then put her into bed. I hold her fairly tight as she isn`t wrapped anymore cos she kicks all the blankets off and sleeps in a sleeping bag thingy.
My question is should I change the way she goes to sleep at nite? and how do I do this? Or should I just keep doing what I`m doing and be happy that she sleeps all nite? She deosn`t sleep much during the day so by 8pm she is cranky as.
If she is really cranky at some stage during the day I will wrap her and hold her tight again and I supose you could say `make` her sleep - she knows she tired - it doesn`t take very long for her to go to sleep then but she only sleeps for half hr and as soon as I put her down she will wake up. I don`t mind that she is up most of the day but she is much happier if she has had a couple of decent sleeps during the day - well she seems happier. Any suggestions??? Thanks Kristy
