My 11 day old ds refuses to sleep in his cradle, and I have ended up resorting to Co sleeping but I really want to get him into his own space ASAP as the possibility of sids terrifies me and I'm not sleeping properly when he's in the bed with me. I have seen the Co sleeping pods that go in bed with u but really don't have the money right now. He is a little better during the day and sleeps in his bouncer while dh watches him and allowing me to get some much needed sleep but come next Monday it wont be possible as dh goes back to work. I am freaking out!
I breastfeed him and he seems content whenever he's on the boob...take him off and try to put him in the cradle and he goes crazy! I tried a dummy but he refuses it. Have tried swaddling but he just whinges and squirms out. Also bought a sleeping bag but yet to try it as he doesn't quite meet the weight requirements yet.
I'm at my wits end and so scared I won't get any rest once dh is back at work let alone be able to do anything if I can't put him down without him screaming down the house!
Please any tips advice much appreciated...please tell me this is fixable!
