During the day I can only get my 9 week old to sleep by putting him in the baby bjorn and walking around the house, or going for a walk outside. If I walk around just holding him, he won't sleep. Once he is asleep in the Bjorn he will sleep from half an hour up to 2-3 hours occasionally, usually about 45 mins.
He used to be able to fall asleep in his swing for 3 hours but he doesn't like that anymore. Occasionally he will feed and fall asleep on me too. But if I put him down after he is properly asleep he will wake up after 5 minutes. I try putting a blanket on him cause I thought he might be waking due to not having my body warmth, but he still wakes. The pram doesn't work either.
At night I can get him to sleep by holding him and walking
or jiggling and also can feed to sleep and he will go in the bassinet fine from about 9-11pm.
Is there anything you do to get baby to sleep on their own in the day? Any tips for me?
My mum suggested putting him down on his front as she said that's what she used to do years ago and at the time midwives recommended front sleeping and not back sleeping due to choking risk. I told her I wasn't comfortable with that tho as its not recommended now due to sids.
