I am super upset!

I can't tell you how many times I have asked a question and needed the advice and help from other fellow moms and never get responses or just a few. Sometimes 2 of the 3 responses have nothing to do with what I asked! Why is it that???


Having said this, does anyone care to help me? I hate to come off as rude, but it really upsets me that when I need a serious answer, I never get help...


So please do tell! How do you get your babies to stay awake during the day? My 1st daughter wasn't near as difficult as my 2nd daughter! She slept through th night at 11 weeks! My youngest daughter is 9 weeks and she still stays up late. She'll sleep through the night after I put her down, but she won't sleep until about 12:45-2:30am. I try to wake her throughout the day, but she won't budge. So how do you or did you keep your little one up? Advice needed please! I am really tired on just 5 hrs. sleep!

I didn't/ i let her be on her own schedule.

My daughter is fully vaccinated so yours doesn't have to be!

I can't do that, I go back to work Feb. 17th. She has to be on a schedule, I can't go to work with only 5 hrs. sleep and sit on the puter all day...

Depends on how old she is. When my dd was born I tried to get her on a schedule but then I realized there is no point. We would use a wet wash cloth and wipe her face to perk her up.

I feel you on the posts... I havent been here that long but I dont know what you have to do to get an answer!

Oh girly, I'm sorry. That's how it goes around here. If it doesn't have drama forget it!!

Well I never had that problem, but why don't you take her out during the day and tire her out...so she goes to sleep earlier. Don't let her take long naps. Wake her up if she is sleeping too much during the day...I hope you find a solution.

The two loves of my life, my son and my fiance

Lots and lots of baths? take time out and play with her during the day (i know its hectic when your going back to work and what not and you want to have the house clean clean for when you do go back) BUT...right now, ya gotta try to keep her awake as much as possible through out the day. And just put her down for one nap.

Good Luck!

I don't know.  I was lucky with my DD and she will go to sleep anywhere between 9 and 11 and sleep until 5 or 6.  Here is a bump for you!

try to do alot of activities with her during the day, and maybe put her in the car at night and drive around and see if she will fall asleep during that time.  and if she doea then carry her in the house and put her in her crib
