My LO likes the shower too, even bein in them lol. She was quite sick one eve n got it all in her hair and smelt lol, OH was in the shower so i just said quick her a quick wash, so he put her on his chest n stood under the shower with her, she LOVED it!! n baths, OMG i swear shes a water baby lol she jus sits there init, dont move n just relaxes lol, cried wen u get her out, oh n its has to be a fairly hot bath too or she'll scream its too cold LOL
Def get a bouncy chair or try swaddlin her, maybe with jus a vest on as they do get really hot wen swaddled and see how that goes!
My little girl is the same as yours. She stays up ALL day now, yesterday was from 7am til 9pm, I can't get her to nap. She'll start to sleep likes yours and wake right back up. If I set her down it's all over, and she starts bawling! She goes into daycare on Monday so we'll see how they handle her! Maybe it'll be good, she won't have mommy there and might start napping normally.
As for spitting up, my little girl did this too at first, but I think we were feeding her too much. Now she will only eat 2/3 oz every hr or 2...I wish I could get her to eat more at one time, it's really frustrating! She'll sometimes eat an oz, then 30 min later want another 1, 30 min later another, it feels like I'm feeding her ALL DAY LONG!
So your baby isnt' the only one, mine's just as frustrating. I don't have another baby to compare her to as she's my first!
Sounds exactly like my baby was. He had a really strong startle reflex and wanted to be held 24/7 until he was 6 1/2 months or so. I took him for walks I the sling loads. Some days it felt like all I did was help him to get to sleep day in day out. It is exhausting and I was very alone as all my friends babies seemed so much less demanding. Look up high needs babies on Dr Sears website. Mine is my first baby and any baby will seem easy after him! I took him to the doctors loads too as I couldn't understand him. My mum kept reassuring me it's his personality as one of my brothers was the same.
Obviously look into checking her milk is ok with the throwing up but maybe some of the other behaviour is just her being herself. It does sound like she has some reflux issues. Have you tried giving her less milk more often? My baby lulled me into a false sense of security in the first 3 weeks too. You will get through it x
She will fall asleep like right now she just fell asleep next to me, and shes just now woke again! I dont know why she keeps waking, soon as she wakes she starts waving her feet and arms around and moaning crying!
It doesnt make a diff is she falls asleep sat up it still happens!
This is called the startle reflex, this exactly what swaddles are made for. There's nothing wrong with the baby.
