Our little girl will be 8 weeks old this Thursday. She has been growing like a weed and we have really enjoyed her thus far (for the most part! lol). Our biggest problem right now is her sleeping. We have noticed that in the last week or so, she seems to really be fighting going to sleep at night. Around 8-9 at night, we change her and put her into her pajamas and try to get her ready to go to sleep. What we have found is that she will get sleepy while we walk her around, then as soon as we put her down, she will either sleep for 5-7 minutes and then wake up crying or she will immediately start crying as soon as she is out of our arms. For the last 2 nights, we have put her in the car and driven her around and it seems to work for the first 10 minutes or so and then its back to crying and not falling asleep. We have tried baths, which she actually likes, we have played classical music and its like she just fights in all the time, till about 11:30 - Midnight, when she finally will fall asleep and be out for the next 3-4 hours. She does really good in the mornings and usually wants to continue sleeping till about 10 or so after being fed. We have heard of parents already setting a bedtime for their little ones at 8 weeks, I just don't see that happening for us. My biggest issue right now, is how frustrated I get when she cries. Her cry is almost ear piercing and a mix of not knowing exactly what she wants/needs along with the crying itself, really gets to me. There have been a couple of times where I have had to set her down and walk away and go outside for a few minutes to keep from going insane it feels like. We've been told to not let her sleep much during the day, so that she sleeps at time better and then we've been told to let her sleep as much as she wants. The last 8 weeks have really been a strain on my mental health and I am tying to hold it together as best I can. I don't believe she has colic, because she only really has an issue at night. I will say though, the nights that she has her meltdowns, she sleeps for 5-6 hours straight before she wakes up, which is nice, but really puts a strain on us getting to bed a decent hour to get the rest we need. Any tips/advice on getting her to sleep earlier and being less cranky?
