So I have two beautiful little girls Alexis, whom turns 3 in December, and Adalyn who is 2 months old. Here is my situation....
Adalyn still has her days and nights mixed, each day I am running on about 4 hours of sleep. Everyone keeps telling me to keep her awake during the day and I try, but how do I keep her awake. She always dozes off. I never had this problem with Alexis, because she just had her days & nights straight, plus I could sleep when she slept. Now I can't sleep when the baby is, because I still have a 2 year old running around the house.
Advice please? Any experience in straightening the days and nights out? How do I keep her awake?
it shouldnt be too hard to do with a 3 year old in the house! keep it bright and noisy during the day. i would mainly work on night time... get a bedtime routine. when you go in to feed her at night keep it very dark and quiet. dont talk just change her diaper, feed her, and go back to sleep. i always keep the babies rooms totally dark, no nightlight until they are in a toddler bed. as for your lack of rest try to lay down every time you feed her... not as good as sleep but atleast relaxing!
