I've always had to either rock with paci or breastfeed to sleep my dd who is now 16 weeks. Lately I can put her down in crib with paci and she drifts of herself not always but 80% of the time. The problem is she rarely naps for more than 45 min unless i pick her up and rock her or breastfeed her to extend the nap. Also nights are not that great either.
She goes to bed around 7:30
sleeps till 11:30 when she wakes up and wants her paci
wakes at 1:30 to eat
wakes at 3:am for paci
Wakes at 5:30 to eat
wakes at 6:30 to eat again won't take paci
sleeps till 7:30
Also she takes naps in the crib and sleeps in the crib till 1:30 am at night but after that feeding she won't go back in the crib. I try for up to 3 or 4 times to put her back but she wakes up 5 min later and after 40 min to an hour of that I give up and bring her to my bed. which is a mattress on the floor next to the crib in her room.
Now I don't know what to work on first is she really hungry again at 6:30 after eating an hour before? should i cut out that feeding?
Also I've been reading the "no cry sleep solution" and am wondering if it's worth it to work on the gentle nipple removal or should i keep the paci to phase out feedings in the future. I'm hoping she can replug herself at 6 months old or so. Also don't know what's up with the no crib past 1:30 am situation. I kind of don't mind because she wakes up so much towards morning I kind of like her in my bed so I don't have to get up. Don't really know what to do any advice. As long as I can get myself to sleep pretty fast I don't feel that tired in the morning but I have nights where I can't fall asleep before she wakes up again and those nights suck.
