X-posted from the April board:
Unless she is being held she is never happy. It's so awful and I don't know what to do with her. It doesn't matter if I put her down awake or sound asleep in the crib, bassinet, bouncer or swing. She is screaming within minutes. She is like this around the clock, I have to sleep with her to get her to sleep at all. Last night I didn't get to eat dinner, brush my teeth or even change out of my clothes into PJs because I was feeding her and she fell asleep and I didn't dare put her down because I wanted to sleep so badly. Is anyone else having this problem? This is #3 for me, you'd think I'd know what to do but I am at a total loss and going completely insane because I can't do anything unless I put her down and listen to her scream the whole time I'm doing it. She's in her swing screaming as I type this. I've tried letting her go for a while to see if she'll eventually tire out, but she doesn't seem to. HELP!!
I feed her every two hours from start to start for like a half hour each time, so it's like every hour and a half. I have two other kids that I am supposed to be taking care of and I can't even take care of myself!
ETA: I have a Moby wrap that I've tried a few times and it only works for her for like a half hour. I just really need to be able to put her down sometimes!!
