    My daughter is 5 weeks old and I cannot get her to go 3 hours inbetween feedings consitantly. Everynow and then she does, but I can not get her on a schedule. I also cannot get her to sleep/nap without having to bounce her, rock her, pat her, etc, and even when she sleeps we are having so much trouble getting her to sleep in her crib. She will sleep in the napper in the playpen most of the time, but not her crib. I am in desperate need of some advice because she is supposed to start daycare next week so I can go back to work! Any help would be much appreciated!
