    Try not to stress about creating 'bad habits' (hate that phrase) OP. Your bub needs to feel safe and secure in these early days and it sounds like you are doing are great job.

    Some bubs start sleeping better on their own, but when that will happen is obviously dependant on the baby. Others might need a little help, and if this is your bub down the track remember there are gentle methods you can use to help them adapt to new sleeping areas (if you move him from co-sleeping to cot) or new settling methods. Really try to not worry about any of that now though, just enjoy your tiny squishy little baby.

    Op I had the same feelings of not wanting to create bad habits. Dd co slept with us for the first month or two which is something said I would never do. We then started rocking her to sleep then placing her in cot when she was fast asleep. After about a month of this we starting putting her in her cot awake when she was getting tired, she didnt even cry, went straight to sleep. It was so easy. Ever since she's been perfect at self settling! Good luck.....things do improve just be strong and try to enjoy bub being little!!

    Agree, controlled crying on a 1 month old is wrong
    They do warn us when we have babies that sleep deprivation is part of it....but it will get better.
    I say cuddle the LO and let sleep on you if nothing else works, they have been in a lovely womb for 9 months and want to continue being close to you , aka "the fourth trimester"

    It doesn't matter how much you're warned about sleep deprivation it can still feel incredibly difficult...there's a reason that sleep deprivation is used as a form of torture.

    It sucks OP but I wish someone had let me know that it's normal for newbies to go through a stage of only sleeping when in Mum/Dad's arms. It does pass...a really good tv series on dvd...plus a stash of drinks and nibblies on hand...plus a sling will really help.

    Just have to add crying can help...I mean if u feel u need to cry ...do it! dont bottle it up...i got quite flustered for the first 2 weeks and was overwhelmed by the responsibility , and sometimes I still do and sometimes all u want to do is cry....but it can make u feel a whole lot better to let it out nothing wrong with that
