Help! My baby won't sleep in their cot

This is something I hear from new parents A LOT!  And its usually followed by 'the only place they will sleep is on me or their father/grandparent/etc'. 

 

Believe me when I say that I was asking the same questions just over 3 years ago when my daughter was born.  I had been working as nurse in a neonatal unit for 7 years and I thought as long as a baby was well fed, warm, and wrapped up like a spring roll they should sleep for at least 3 hours at a time.

 

Oh, how wrong was I!
