Any suggestions on getting a newborn on a sleep sched? She's just under 3 weeks old...

I would LOVE to get her to sleep at night. If I wake her up, she just fusses and won't sleep at night anyhow. Please help! lol

  • What i did with my son was i just started making a schedule for him, like everything at a set time, bath, bottle, then rock him to sleep and put him in his crib, at the same time every night, he still woke up for a bottle every 2-3 hours, but he went back to sleep, then in the morning he would be ready to get up. but i started that at 1 month, for the first month i just let him eat when he wanted to, sleep when he wanted to, etc.

  • Too young to be predictable. Sleep when baby sleeps
