First time mom here.. I'm having a really hard time enjoying being a mom right now. My baby literally lets me do nothing. She hates all of her 'stations'. She will last a few minutes at best in each one of them before she is crying to be held. She hates tummy time. She doesn't nap. I just spent the past 4 hours trying everything I could think of to get her to take a nap and she would not sleep for anything. I am not all about CIO or letting her try and self-soothe.. She is only 6.5 months old. but really I don't know what to do. Sometimes I feel like just letting her cry but I can't, I haven't done that once since she was born. I am losing it though. I need some advice, how can I possibly get anything done with a high needs baby? She's not happy unless she is being rocked, that really is the only time she's content.
Help, help, help!!!
One sleepy mama to ds #1 (5) and ds #2...my VBAC baby (2) and expecting #3 sometime in 2/2012!!
what's working for me at the moment (subject to change at a moments notice) is i lay my 6 month ds in the swing up in his room set on the highest setting next to some LOUD white noise (humidifier on full blast) with blackout curtains on the windows.....he went from taking 20 min naps to napping about 1 hour.
Oh yeah! White noise!
We used a hair drier set on hi on the cool setting. It put him to sleep like a charm every time...
