Re: Need some serious sleep advice...
Is she getting enough to eat? I always pumped then bottle fed and DS started sleeping 6-7 hours a night at 7 weeks. I had to stop giving breastmilk and using formula, and there was no change in his sleeping. I would see what would happen if you offered her a bottle as opposed to the breast. My little guy still falls asleep to the bottle, and I dont care if it is bad for him. Its what he likes, and I wont change that. Also, I still swaddle him. He wants his arms out, but he likes the feeling of being wrapped up. Does she get a binki to sleep with? Mine did not for a while, then the dr suggested trying it when he was going thru his 4 mnth sleep regression. It helps some....Wait, has she always been a bad sleeper or is it getting worse. Around 4mnths they go thru a sleep regression. I had to look it up, and my dr had no idea about it, but I found some of the info I read very interesting. Also, it sounds like she is not sleeping enough during the day. I hope this helps a little.
