Ok so here is the problem that my husband and I are facing right now.
Brooke is about 4 weeks old right now, shes breast and bottlefeed, shes a very hearty eater!! We are having trouble with getting her to sleep anywhere except on my chest or in our bed, next to me, with some part of her body having to touch me. The minute I move, she wakes up and starts screaming, until I move her closer again. I have tried having her sleep in her bouncy chair, her swing, her crib, her bassinet, anywhere would be better then where we are right now. I have also tried rocking her to sleep, patting her back til she is asleep, which works, but the second i go to put her down somewhere, shes wide awake again, and I mean wide awake and screaming, til we pick her back up. I have taken to sleeping on the couch with her alternating between her bouncy seat and me and I am exhausted, not to mention missing my bed. I cant do this for many more nights, as I am reaching my limit, and my patients are wearing very very thin at this point. I am averaging about 2 hours sleep a night, and they arent two consecutive hours. I have been doing some research and found a hammock like sleep contraption called the Amby motion hammock. I was wondering if anyone has used one, if it worked, and if it was worth the money. I dont want to spend $250 on something that isnt going to work, and is going to just sit in a corner of my house. Any suggestions or comments would be really appriciated!! Please help me get a couple more hours sleep by myself!!
