Carli has been sleeping very restless. she wont go to sleep on her own and then once i put her down she stirs the entire time she is down. which makes for a very little night of sleep on our part. im not sure whats wrong. we thought it may be gassy so we work her legs and boy does she let them rip lol. i am now concerned that i am not producing enough milk. my right breast pumps next to nothing when i try to pump. does anyone one have any other ideas what it may be? just trying to figure out what may help her sleep sounder.

I think its normal to not be able to pump as much milk as a baby can get out.

As for the sleeping. Is she crying when you put her down or just moving about and grunting and stuff? If she isn't crying I'd just leave her. Sometimes when I put Oz down to sleep in the middle of the night he doesn't pass right out but so long as he doesn't cry I just let him wiggle around in the crib and go back to sleep.

Adalyn can be pretty restless some nights when I put her down.I usually end up letting her sleep on me those nights.

Dj is very restless at night, I start him out in his bassinette everynight to try and get him used to sleeping on his own, but I get very little sleep with him moving around because I am worried he is not comfortable, or think he is going to start crying at any moment, so I have ended up with him on my chest sitting up on the couch for the past week or so. I feel like he has a lot of gas so he is uncomfortable.

Sounds normal. Babies squirm a lot when sleeping until they get into deep sleep. Try swaddling. As for pumping, your pump can't get the same amount if milk out that your baby can. It doesn't mean that you're not making enough. As long as baby is pooping, peeing and growing then you're making enough.

I agree that if baby is just grunting let her lay there. I only pick E up when he's crying.

I have a big grunter on my hands. She doesn't cry much but she grunts so much at night. I read that babies spend a lot of time in rem sleep which isn't very deep, so that can make them seem restless or more "vocal".

I know i said id never do this...but.... Noah will not sleep in his Moses basket and after a week and a half of sleepless nights trying to put him down to sleep we gave in and now have him in our bed - he sleeps under our nursing pillow with Alan on one side and me on the other - the pillow is brilliant as it stops us rolling over on top of him in the night.
Alan changes his nappies, I nurse him and then let him lay on my chest for 10 mins whilst i wind him. He usually drifts off and then we place him in the bed with us. I'm just careful that the duvet is nowhere near his head and the dog is at the bottom of the bed.
