My daughter Lily is now three weeks old and I'm afraid that we've spoilt her a bit during her first weeks. Lily was full-term but was just 2.5kg when she was born, and I think as she was so small was extra clingy. She wants to spend all her time being held by me (she now also likes being held by Dad too). She hates being put in her basinett and the longest she has lasted in there is about 45 mins.
My DH spent the first three weeks at home with us, so we spent a lot of time just holding her as she slept and at night slept with her in our bed.
Of course now he's gone back to work there's no way I can hold her all day, so have decided to be tough mum and get her sleeping in her basinett.
My question is how do I go about doing it. I started this morning after one last sleep with us last night.
I gave her a bath this morning and a feed and then rocked her in her basinett. I've resettled her three times and anf the longest she lasted was about 20 mins. She started screaming so have now put her on the boob.
Do I just keep doing this over and over?
She's a good sleeper at night but during the day she often won't settle between feeds.
Also has Infacol worked for anyone?
