This is my 3rd, so I'm not a new mommy. But her sleep is really messed up and with caring for 2 active toddlers, I don't have the time to just sit and hold the baby all day so she'll sleep.
She's 6 months old. Her sleep got messed up at 5 weeks when she got RSV and had to be hospitalized. She then developed asthma and severe reflux due to complications from the RSV. Before this, she would nap and sleep some in her portable crib. But after the illness, she will only sleep well if I'm holding her. I've tried the small crib, the full size crib, the pack n play, the swing, the bouncy seat, etc.
She's exhausted. She won't nap longer than 15 to 20 min if I'm not holding her. She won't sleep in a front carrier, wrap, or sling (I've tried all 3). At night she sleeps in bed with me, but has now started waking at 4am and crawling around the bed. So, she isn't even resting well at night. Anyone have some good advice?
*No CIO pls
