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
Myself I dont think you should put anything under her crib. However that is just my opinion.
Good luck, please let me/us know what worked if you try any of these.
God bless you and your daugther
Thank you and I will keep you updated. Im going to try rubbing her feet and turning her the other way tonight.
I hope it works for you. If not yet you see that it is in some way soothing, do not give up. It sometimes takes more than a few nights. The foot has a certain pressure point that works the best and if I recall it is in the middle of the foot.
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
I have a vibrating chair. My only concern with the driving is, how do I get her out of her carseat without her waking up? I can get her to fall asleep in my arms, but as soon as I set her down anywhere she's wide awake.
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.
I am guilty of that also duffsmom, I think we all are.
I only do it when I'm too tired to stay awake and rock her to sleep or wait until she falls asleep. It does work but I'm afraid of being the parent with my three year old still sleeping in my bed because they get used to it. Did that happen with you?
Well congratulations, it isnt a fluke. Think about it, for some reason u were led to ask this question. There fore you must have faith in the replies. Keep it up. I have 1 more suggestion, curl up her knees to her tummy and roll a bit. its soothin
I will do that too! Thanks to everyone who has answered. You may lead to many nights of better sleep, for both of us.
My child is on formula, and it's Similac, the blue can.
I see you use the milk base Similac, is there a reason. The red tin is Soy and blue milk. Personal milk today is a big ??? so i beleave in Soy and saw many babies preform better on that. Cramps sleepless and so on.
Pediatrician didn't give any reason to switch to soy milk. It's just what she started on and I haven't wanted to switch the formula. She doesn't have an upset stomach. She's happy most of the day and doesn't spit up. Just won't sleep at night.
Play and smile and more play, play even more with baby. Baby will get so tired and fall asleap. The love and bonding will become more relaz and sleep eazy. The milk compare with soy is still what i stan by, and know the resolts i saw.
