He brings her to me around midnight and I try to keep her with me in bed to sleep. She squirms most of the time rubbing her face and rolling onto her side. I know she is tired, she has her eyes closed she just squirms a lot and rolls onto her side rubbing her face onto the sheet and I am afraid she is going to get into a position where she can not breath. She will not say on her back. She also sounds like she is congested at night and can not breath very well when she is in the bed, when I pick her up and sit in the rocker it seems like she can breath better. We have a humidifier that we just put in the room a couple of night ago.
I try nursing her in bed but this does not work very well, maybe we just need more practice? She also has to be burped or she will spit up, so I have to pick her up after she has fallen back to sleep. It's like she is in between sleep and awake and she will settle for a second and I think she is going to fall asleep but then the squirming starts all over again. I get up and sit in the rocker and she falls right to asleep. (Note: I wrote this yesterday and last night we actually had some success with her sleeping in the bed, but she did spit up after I nursed her to sleep when she woke up, I knew this was going to happen because I did not pick her up and burp her. She slept on her side most of the time which made me feel a little uneasy)
Have we created a problem with the rocker? I rocked my oldest daughter to sleep and she still slept in bed with me until she was 5 years old with no problems.
I have my daughter in a sling and hold her most of the day. Our goal is to have her sleep with us in our bed and to be able to go to bed together every night, instead of my husband holding her in the rocker.
Thank you in advance for any advice/suggestions.
