I really need help/advice from anyone willing to give it.
We are having major issues with sleeping. We have tried everything, but Mackenzie is really having issues getting to sleep and staying asleep.
Last night Mackenzie woke up basically every 1 1/2 - 2 hours.
Tonight it took me over an hour of her screaming to get her to sleep.
What do I do???
I have tried leaving her in the crib with her mobile...
she is happy but it doesn't put her to sleep, it just entertains her.
I have tried letting her cry...
she just cries until she gets so worked up she can't go to sleep.
I have tried rocking her to sleep...
she just wants to get out of my arms, she can't just calm down.
I have tried putting her on the dryer (Prissy's idea)...
doesn't do anything for her, she just continues to cry.
I have tried driving her around until she falls asleep in the car...
that works until we get her out of the car, then she wakes up within 5 mins.
I don't know what else to do. We have a bedtime routine. We eat, take a bath, get dressed, sing, sometimes "read" a book, and then go to bed.
Please give me suggestions!!!!!!!!!!
This is a problem with naps and nighttime sleep. For the last few days she just doesn't want to sleep. Now when I give her her binky she knows I want her to go to bed and she spits it out if she is tired and gets mad. I just need any help I can get!
Thank you ahead of time for any help I get.
