Restless Baby


My LO is 4 weeks old and for the past week she has not been able to sleep in her bassinet/crib at night. During the day she will take 1-2 hour naps in it, but once 8pm hits she does not allow us to put her down.

How do you get a baby to start sleeping on their own? I don’t want to start a bad habit of her having to fall asleep on someone.

We currently dim all the lights, turn in white noise machine, rock her, feed her, and read a book. She will fall asleep, then we try to put her down. 5 mins later she is kicking and crying

I know I will continue to breastfeed her on demand but I’m worried that she is not getting enough sleep.

Please help! I need to get a good nights rest...
