No sedatives are permitted for babies of this age.Your baby does seem to need very little sleep. First try to establish a routine. After her evening meal and bottle put her to bed and read to her for a while,then kiss her goodnight and leave the room.If she starts to cry allow her to cry for 5 minutes before going to her. Just reassure her and leave the room. Now add a minute to the time if she cries again. This is the controlled crying method. Keep adding a minute to the time when she starts to cry. She will eventually get so tired that she will fall asleep. It may take more than one night and it is very stressful but this method will work.
