DS is 7 weeks old. We have just gone through a couple of horrendous weeks - he had a wonder week (I think) followed by his jabs and a growth spurt and it's all just been too much for him!
He seems to have settled down now, but with it has come a need to be on me constantly. Getting him to sleep in his bassinet during the day is getting hard. He will fall asleep on me but if I put him down he somehow senses he isn't on me. He will last about 45 minutes max before waking up (usually more like 20-30 minutes). If I put him down drowsy he will wake up instantly, and if I put him down awake to go to sleep with a dummy etc he just looks around and won't close his eyes. I can resettle him easily enough and he will get sleepy, but its an endless cycle of me putting him down and him waking up. He is now starting this during his night feed as well - he just won't go back down without a lot of settling and fussing around
I have an ergo which is great, and I am looking into slings as well, but on days like today (39C) its just too hot (plus he gets too heavy after a while!). I am feeling a bit worried that he isn't getting enough sleep during the day. I do allow him to sleep on me while I go about my business but sometimes I need some space, and I want to encourage him to sleep on his own too.
Has anyone got any ideas? I don't really have a daytime routine as such, we have a night one which (has usually) worked well.
