Hi Im experiencing a sick overtired baby...can anyone help?

Her naps have dwindled to 20-45 minutes. Shes 11 weeks but born a month preterm so have no idea how to deal with this. A times have ranged from 45-1:25 ( which by then is overtired). Shes fighting sleep and cranky. Im desperate bc I have a 3 year old that also needs my attention.

I was thinking of starting night training with shh pat but it feels like I might not be able to bc shes still very congested despite our best efforts to help her. Its just starting to get warmer here and my son keeps bringing home new colds from school.

Help!!

Does she sleep in the car, sling or buggy so you can get out with your son?

When they are sick the best thing you can do is APOP. Honestly even when well and under a year old   the benefits from cuddling to sleep or wearing in a sling for sleeping can outweigh the benefits of a 'good routine' especially when they are sick. In babies when they are sick often the best 'medicine' can be skin to skin contact

Hi! Thank you! Shes getting over her cold and now going through a developmental leap haha!

Usually she takes two of her naps in the stroller on days when my son has preschool. She also sleeps great in the wrap. Bassinet is a toss up but Im trying not to stress too much about it. Still trying to figure her out in terms of wake times and sleep cues.

Shes only 12 weeks and still does A times of about 1-1.25 hours; anything over and she cries.

Im actually dealing with a breast infection (abscess) so Im not even thinking about IS right now. Trying to take care of myself first.
