Quoting MiloBaby:" DD was just like this, we had to hold her to fall asleep, heat her bassinet up with a wheat pack, take ... [snip!] ... carefully turn her back onto her back. Have you tried swaddling him? DD hated it but ive herd it works for alot of people"
Quoting SulleyNZ:" Yeah we swaddle him every time we put him down.. he'll be okay for an hour or so but then he's up wanting ... [snip!] ... wouldn't bother me except everyone says not to sleep with him, but that's the only way he'll sleep and I need sleep too "Its so hard when they're like that, I wanted to co-sleep but Im way to paranoid, I like to sleep with a smurf tonne of blankets and pillows so it would be too dangerous. Maybe just try patting him or rocking the bassinet when he wakes up and see if that puts him back to sleep
Quoting Momma-of-2-Ts:" we ended up co-sleeping because our son only would sleep on our chests, so we would swaddle him and sleep ... [snip!] ... 9-10 months inside of you, they are not ready to loose that yet, we had our son sleeping in his crib by himself at 6 weeks"
Quoting SulleyNZ:" Are plunket nazi's about co-sleeping? I'm legit scared of the groups they have to "help" new mums, like ... [snip!] ... and he didn't wake up til after four both nights! He woke up at 4.30 and 6 am on night 1, and 4.50 on night 2. Sooo happy!"That is so awesome!! Yeah, plunket can be helpful, but theres a bunch of stuff people dont tell them, like co sleeping. Ive also found some of the plunket nurses to be total airheads, like they didnt know basic stuff about babies and I wondered how they came to be plunket nurses lol.

Quoting SulleyNZ:" When do they start doing the home visits? My midwife is doing them at the mo, not sure when it switches ... [snip!] ... Fell asleep on my chest finally and we just snuck him into his bed but he's making snuffly noises like he's gonna wake up :S"Aw I miss those snuffly noises, they're so cute! It switches to plunket at 6 weeks, I cried because my midwife was so awesome! Bossy, but awesome
