i need some help....17 day old infant who will only nurse to sleep, unless she's in the car. i don't mind the nursing to sleep at all, and i am sure i will miss it later on. baby girl will drop off to sleep, and i will wait until i think she drops off to a deep sleep, and then I try to put her down in her cradle. almost instantly, she wakes up. she'll coo and suck her fingers for a few minutes, and then she cries. so, it's back into the living room to start again. she'll latch on and suck for 30 seconds before she's asleep again.
last night, i tried to put her down at 10:30 pm, 1 am, 4 am. in between, i held her while we slept on the couch. in the morning, i put her in her vibrating seat so i could sleep in bed for a hour or two.
what's the deal? what can we do differently?
