Hi, seriously sleep deprived so sorry if this has been addressed elsewhere. My little boy is 5 days old (yes, still very early days, I know ) and while he sleeps really well during the day (I breastfeed him, put him in his bassinet and he sleeps for a couple of hours no probs) after about 9pm he feeds, appears to be really drowsy, but when I put him down he wakes almost instantly and will not be resettled...he mouths at his hands and bobs around on me looking for my breast, all I can do is feed him again. I've tried shushing, wrapping, patting etc and the best I can get out of him is a 10-20 minute sleep before he's awake demanding a feed again.
Got home today after my c-section, I've barely had any night time sleep (literally 1-2 hours at best each night in 20 minute blocks) and getting sleep during the day is hard - impossible at hospital as i kept being disturbed by the nurses/drs and equally difficult at home as I have two 5 year olds. I have DH at home for 2 weeks, what can I do to get my baby to settle and sleep better at night time...even an hours sleep after each feed would be bliss!!
