I had my first child november 20th. I had her by c section. it was supposed to be natural but she was sunny side up. Abby is a month old. She went for her drs visit and they told me to keep her up during the afternoon. Well she is usually up in the morning. Sometimes from 7 to 1. It varies sometimes its not that long. Well I tried to keep her awake this afternoon she fell asleep. She would not stay awake, She woke up on and off but not for too long. Gave her a bath and she is awake now. She has been fussy like never before. She has never been this fussy. I think its because she is tired. She was awake quite a bit last night. I think her belly is upset. She ate well around 6 and burped well but I don't know what to do. I can't take naps and I think I have insomnia. I sleep at night but not well she makes noises when she sleeps. Also she doesn't like her bouncy seat and her swing she likes sometimes, She won't go to sleep on her own but we are trying that tonight. Its stressful being a new mom. I hate hearing her cry but sometimes I have to let her. Does anyone have any sugguestions? Is it normal for her to sleep that much during the afternoon?
