Little Sis's Sleeping

So, little sis has been driving me crazy. She hasn't been sleeping well at night, or in the day. Last night she woke up every 2 hours, and the night before was similar. She has only taken one really good nap in the last 3 days, and I"m at a total loss of what to do for her. I keep thinking there must be something I'm doing wrong, or she would be sleeping better. I don't know. Little D was a great sleeper, so maybe I was just spoiled and I don't know what to do with a normal baby?

Some friends on facebook recommended I try swaddling her, so I did tonight and she seemed very content to be all tightly wrapped up. I'm hoping it will keep her asleep longer. If this works, the next thing to do will be to invest in one of those swanky swaddling blankets. That will make my life so much easier, and maybe those sorry little dark circles under sissy's eyes will go away!

I'm open to any type of suggestion from readers too, so if you have an idea, please!! I was also trying to get her training to put herself to sleep, but that has only ended in tears for both of us, so maybe I'll try again in a month or two. I just can't keep suffering through all the nights like this though, and she isn't doing well for it either. We have to come up with some kind of a solution, and fast.

Thanks for reading. Sorry I've been lazy and a little slow with posting the last while. I'm going to try to do better, and to provide more information about Little D's therapy sessions and upcoming appointments with specialists.
