She is just adorable! Sometimes as new mothers we're just too tired to enjoy their cuteness!

Something I wished I learned with my first - it's really not worth it to 'force' them to do things in an attempt to form some structure.

I listened to everybody else with my first little cherub.
- didn't want her too 'used' to being held - didn't want her in the habit of being held or rocked to sleep - wanted her to learn to soothe herself, put herself to sleep - yadda, yadda, yadda -

When I had Bella, I just let her call the shots. If she wanted to be held all the time, I held her. If she wanted to nurse constantly, I let her. If she wanted to sleep, didn't want to sleep, wanted to sleep in her bed, in the swing, in my arms, whatever, I didn't schedule a thing. By the time Bailey was a couple of months old, I knew every nap/sleep schedule she had. With Bella, there was no set time when she would sleep. And I would just nurse her the second she woke up.

I was more rigid with Bailey, and she/it was definitely tougher on me. I don't know if it's nature or nurture, but I followed Bellas cues and wants for everything and she was the easiest baby ever. She just never cried.
She's so adorable!!!! And I have the same Boppy slipcover

She's adorable! And Lydia was the same way with wanting me to stand up and bounce and sway. I often ate dinner standing up and bouncing with her in the wrap.

Like the others said, don't worry about spoiling her. Current research shows that babies who are held more cry less (overall).

Hugs!
Life with Lydia

Try gripe water. We had a simlar problem with our daughter around that age and gripe water seemed to help along with a combination of belly massage (massage downward) and bringing her knees towards her body. She still cried during the process, but as a short time she was able to calm down with cuddles and go to sleep.

Good luck and hang in there. It will get better.
