I have an 11 week old baby girl called Ava who I am having trouble getting into a routine, especially as she doesn't sleep well during the day. She usually goes down at 8:30pm after a bath and her last feed and wakes at 4am for a feed, then straight back down until 7-8am, this is great as she does sleep well at night. I am trying to stick to a routine of feeding her four hourly during the day, when I try to put her down after being awake for 1.5-2hrs during the day, she screams madly, sometimes up until 20mins, she definately is showing tired signs when I put her down, and often when she does fall asleep only catnaps. Should I be re-settling her after she wakes from these catnaps? Yet in the evening after her 4pm bottle she can sleep for 3hrs, should I wake her for her 8pm bottle? or should I let her sleep? It's very confusing as everyone says not to wake a sleeping baby! I have only been doing this routine for 3 days. I'm also wanting to put Ava into her own room and into a cot, should I introduce day sleeps in her room or put her bassinet into her room so she gets used to it to start with? This will probably put the routine out of whack even more! Help! going crazy! Sorry for the long post!
