My son is 2 weeks old and we have had such a trying day. He has been pretty good about taking naps during the day so far. However, today he fought sleep from when he woke up from his morning nap at 8:45 a.m. until 2:15 p.m. He was so tired, but would scream any time I tried to put him down for a nap (after falling asleep in my arms). He ended up passing out from 2:15 until 6:00, and now here we are around bedtime and he is doing the exact same thing and will not sleep at all. My husband's solution is to just keep feeding him, but I don't necessarily think that is the answer. Not to mention, by the time we can get him to at least doze off while holding him, it is almost time for him to eat again so then we have to start the cycle all over.
I don't know if I am looking for advice here, I am just at my wits end and needed to vent. I am still going through those crazy PP hormones, and just really doubting myself on everything and feeling like I cannot do this! I know, he is only two weeks old, but I just wish it were easier than this. Please someone tell me that it gets better?! I am looking towards another very long night (last night he only slept for about 1.5 hour stretches).
