My Mood:
Sorry your struggling to workout sleep kinks. My fourth child is also a needy nighttime baby. Cosleeping has helped some. Some ideas to try: swaddling!, white noise (fan, music), a shirt sheet (worn by you), daytime baby wearing.

You could try wearing her close to you during the day for the first month/two until she gets a little more comfortable with her surrounding, then once she is bigger you could try the crib again.

I know this is a touch subject I firmly believe that breastfeeding and cospleeing is great for the baby and holds little to no risks when done correct. Are you nursing her? If not I would recommend not cosleeping but you can still do lots of babywearing
May I ask why you wouldn't recommend cosleeping for a formula feeding mama? I would think it would be another wonderful way for mama and baby to bond.
