My baby is 8 weeks old and weighs around 9.5 lbs. She keeps waking up at night every 2 hours and for the naps during the day, she sleeps for 20 minutes and then starts crying. I read the BabyWise book and currently reading healthy sleep habits, happy child..nonetheless i am really struggling to apply all these techniques to put the baby down for sleep. I am breastfeeding her and trying to put her on a 3 hrs schedule but she is always crying and so i feed her every 2-2.5 hours and at night i just breastfeed her whenever she cries..she only takes 1 breast and sucks for 10 minutes maximum. Does anyone have any recommendations? I started to let her cry it out a bit when i put her in the crib but if she cries too loudly, i go and check on her..i know i am not supposed to do that but i get stressed when i hear her cry so loudly. this is my second child and i thought it would get easier but it is not. Thanks in advance.
