I'm a first time mom and just not sure on what to do, hopefully i can get some suggestions here.
First question -
My little girl is 5 weeks old now and i have been having issues with her weight. She goes up a couple of ounces and will go down a couple of ounces, I'm currently bfing and supplementing with formula as well. I don't know what else i should do if i should switch only to one or the other exclusively?? Has anyone else run into this?
Second question -
My daughter hates to be put down by herself, if she is asleep and i put her in the bassinet or crib she will wake up within a couple of mins and start crying to be picked up. At night its the same thing so i end up pulling her into bed most times with us and then she will sleep.... I've tried using a hot water bottle in her bassinet and once she is asleep taking out the water bottle and placing her down and that seems to help a bit. Any other ideas? or will she slowly get used to sleeping by herself in the bed?
Thanks for checking this out and for any suggestions that you might have its greatly appreciated
