Re: Am I expecting too much?
I would also suggest a sling or something to wear her in. the pp suggested swaddling .. that is what I was gonna suggest also. Babies can feel themselves being put down so they automatically get startled and wake up. another thing if you dont want to swaddle is to make sure she is fully asleep before putting her down. to do this you lift up one of her arms and if it falls shes asleep and then you would *probably* be safe putting her down. hth mama!! and big to you!!! It can be VERY frustrating at times but just know you arent alone!!!
