    My baby is 12 weeks old and will only nap in my arms after nursing. He is swaddled, white noise and fan going, I stay within appropriate waketimes but he wakes up instantly when I lay him down. Swing, rocker, bassinet all the same. He bedshares with me at night laying on my arm. I have a three year old who doesn’t see me anymore I had to put her in daycare because of this. I’m exhausted, depressed and lonely. Waiting on 4 months to sleep train.

    My 3 week old hates everything but the rock n play. And even then, he has to be in a deep sleep or he wants out asap. He slept ok in the bassinet but he had bad congestion and a cold so the doctor recommended to have him sleep at an angle because of drainage at night. He now hates swaddled and hates his bassinet. He must be rocked at all times. So he has the rock n play that rocks, vibrates, and plays music. So far so good! I hope transitioning him to the crib won’t be hell.

    My baby is 9 weeks old and only naps on me after eating. I try to move him to a dock a tot after but he always wakes up. I tried the crib but he won’t nap there. Any tips?

      Hi @Lanisa, thanks for writing to us and congratulations on your new baby! My boys did this to me some days when they were really little too, so I understand loving the cuddles but at the same time wanting a break!!! Here is a link to a guide with tips to help with your newborn in these early weeks: https://www.babysleepsite.com/15-free-baby-sleep-facts-new-parents-must-know/
      I’d keep trying and it may just take some time for him to age out of it a bit, but trying it always good so it’s not a foreign idea when you try to spring the crib on him or something.
      If you need more help as he continues to grow, let us know! We are here and would love to help.
