How can I get my baby to go to sleep at night?


My little girl is nearly 11 weeks old and is a night hawk, and a grouchy one at that. I think she is overly tired, because she is awake all day, but won't sleep at night. It's almost as if she's afraid of missing out. What can I do, if anything at all, to get her to sleep?

    Wow thank you for the information. I have never heard that. I don't know if this helps, but she hates being on her back flat. Is it okay to put a pillow under the mattress of her crib?

    Most of the time she isn't cranky just it seems when she's tired

    I have tried these also. My son was so used to noise he could not sleep without it.

    I think the worse thing sometimes is trying to be extra quiet when your baby is sleeping. Too many parents (usually first timers) do that.

    Good luck again

    It's a controversial thing. but not so uncommon. I did it from time to time with my kids. My son and daughter-in-law do it with their oldest child. It does seem to help.

    My child is on formula, and it's Similac, the blue can.
