Hi, I think I can help. Are you breastfeeding or bottle feeding? First of all you have to be consistent, its alot harder when you breastfeed because the baby is fed on demand formula is a little better in that aspect but of course BF is better for the baby. Heres what I did with my daughter, when you wake up get them dressed and fed first off-so they know what to expect when they wake up babies like consistency and predictability it makes them more secure which equals less crying. Feed on demand of course but when it gets to lunch time or when you want them to take a nap feed them in a quiet place with dimmed light and put them down to sleep right after. Let them nap. Now when you get to night time do the same thing..fed them, let them wind down a little, a warm bath can help significantly, put them in a dark room with music and let them sleep. If they cry check on them but continue to try to put them to sleep.
