Naps!? No way!

My 4 1/2 month old daughter is having THE hardest time sleeping. Last night she slept 7 hrs only. Maybe 7 1/2 at max. And it was not uninterrupted sleep. I put her in her crib at 9:55 pm, hoping see would stay asleep for at least 6 hrs. She was up at 1:50 am. So, husband got up and bought her to me and I feed her for about 1/2 hr. Put her back in her crib at 2:30 am, hoping she would sleep until 6 am. She was up again a little before 5:30 am. So, husband bought her to me and I feed her again. I was so tired that I didn’t realize she was still latched on until almost 7 am! *Deep sigh* So, dad attempted to take her to her crib, but she was having none of it. She cried for a while and was up, so dad took her downstairs for two more hours while I tried to get some rest. At 9 am I went downstairs, she had just fallen asleep, and stayed asleep for about 25 mins. So, I had a quick bite to eat, nursed her, changed her diaper, gave her a morning snack of rice ceral, nursed again. All in hopes that she would nap by 11 am. And so she did fall asleep nursing at 10:50, only to wake up at 10:54. I left her in hopes that she would fall asleep again, but its now 11:30 and no such luck.

I really feel like she isn’t getting enough rest. She is constantly rubbing her eyes, but she just won’t stay asleep. Does anyone have any advice out there?

    Thanks. I sometimes just have to lie her down in her crib and hope that she will fall asleep. It seems that she only wants to fall asleep in my arms, but sometimes that is hard because I have things to do. I don’t know how to get her to stay asleep in her crib. The minute I lay her down she’ll wake up. 🙂 Oh, why do children fight sleep so much? And then as adults we are crying to go to sleep. haha!
