Baby boy is three weeks and four days. We are EBF and he is doing very very well. He eats often and is gaining weight properly.
He goes 2-3 hours between feedings, the problem is that he is not sleeping that long because it take him forever to fall asleep and he absolutely will not fall asleep anywhere except in our arms or in our bed. We had no intention of co- sleeping, but I have taken a crash course because its the only way to get him to sleep. He has spent maybe ten hours total in his bassinet and most of that was screaming. If he is VERY sleepy he will sleep in his RNP pretty well, but for the most part the second he leaves my arms he is awake. Not screaming or even fussing that bad, but very awake and eventually gets loud until I pick him up.
How do I get him to fall asleep without being on me. Or, alternatively, i love when he sleeps on me! So is this ok? Is it something he will grow out of? I appreciate the advice. For now I am enjoying the cuddles, just worried about the long term.
