DD3 is driving me a little ....ok a lot
She is the most fidgety baby I have ever seen. Her arms and legs never stop moving. When I am bathing her I have to keep a towel over me because she splashes so much I end up soaked!
Anyway, that is more of a laundry issue . The problem is she doesn't settle. Ever. It's like she can't relax. I try rocking her, nursing, swaddling, etc. She just thrashes around. I can't understand why nursing doesn't calm her down
I am not sure what to do. It's VERY frustrating trying to put her down for a nap. I basically either try rocking/nursing which doesn't go well - popping on and off the breast thrashing around. Or laying her on my bed and nursing next to her and trying to soothe her with my hand on her chest or rubbing her head and constantly replacing the pacifier literally 28 times.
Yesterday I put her in her rocker and just rocked her and replaced her pacifier 85 times until she wore herself out It feels cold and wrong but I feel like I have tried everything and I am at a loss now.
I have tried a warm bath at night and that didn't work but I only tried it once. I will admit our house is active and loud so it's probably hard for her to transition but there isn't much I can do about that. I have tried having a winding down time where we read a small book and just sit in a quiet low lit room. Didn't help much either. I have white noise in the room - always.
I'd appreciate any ideas. I have to deal with this about 5 times/day and it's wearing me down
