  • mine still fights sleep at 3 months! (but she started early). she easily went between bottle breast and pacifier so we would try feeding, if she rejected it, we tried pacifier. we sing and rock and pace at the same time. we also found that she hated her bassinet and would only sleep in the carseat for a while. she changes her mind about what she likes for each nap so we just try everything. sometimes we get it right on the first shot, but other times we dont and it takes a while. just a half hour ago i got her all snug and warm, gave her a pacifier, hummed a little and she was out cold in less than 5 minutes.

    good luck!
