A) She has gotten used to sleeping on us, and now we've started trying to put her down before she's asleep and she wakes up early (like after 25-35 minutes).
B) She wakes up wanting her pacifier, or if she has it to begin with, it falls out and she wakes up.
C) She doesn't eat enough, and wakes up hungry.
I think all of these play a role in why she is not sleeping well . . . my mistake was trying to tackle all these issues at the same time. It made for a VERY mad baby, and a VERY anxious mom. Anyways, I decided the easiest thing to fix is trying to get her to eat more at each feeding. After looking over my little "baby log", I realized the times she slept the longest were the times she ate the most before.
I think she wants to be like her momma and eat small amounts very frequently. So today I am stretching out the time between feedings to see if she'll eat more (she is also a very leisurely eater).
I think the next thing to tackle is the pacifier thing. By the way, let me know your thoughts on pacifiers and your experience with them. I think we'll just hold her or rock her or whatever for a few days instead of using the pacifier. I don't want her to NEED it to sleep or stay asleep. We'll see.
Then at some point we'll work on the napping in her crib thing. She does good at night, so I'm not too worried about it. But I can't handle the "cry it out" thing yet.
