First time mom here with a 1mo and I'm concerned because she isn't sleeping. I know newborn-6mo is rough but she was awake from 11:30 pm to 5:00 am with a 20 minute nap around 2:30. What can I do to help her sleep? We are breastfeeding and supplementing so she definitely is not hungry and we rock, bounce, EVERYTHING but no luck. We've tried keeping her awake in the afternoon but it is impossible since she so small. Sleep deprived and worried, I need some advice!!

I will tell you this, keeping them up during the day only makes the nights worse! Our ped said sleep breeds sleeps. My LO is also 1 month ❤️

She's still got her days & nights confused. She'll come around. Until then try to get as much rest as you can when she's sleeping. Try to take her outside during the day for a walk so she can get a little exposure to fresh air and sunlight. It'll help.

The more she sleeps during the day- the better she'll sleep at night. Otherwise she'll be overly tired. Hope you get some rest mama!

She looks gorgeous😃😍 Maybe you just need to let her sleep, and she come through at her time. Mine was the same as yours, until like 3 months she started sleeping a little bit more. Now she sleeps a little better, she be 5 months on the 17th.

She's gorgeous!! I had to start coving my daughters eyes with a hat or a light blanket while I rocked her to sleep...apparently light irritated her
