This is my first post on a baby forum and I think their will be plenty more coming!
So my name is Ryan, we have a 3 day old girl. Everything seems to be going fine apart from we can not really put her down for more than 5 minutes before she starts crying (ok, screaming) so in the last 3 days her mum has had nearly zero sleep due to the fact I am unable to keep her from crying for a long period of time (she really wants the boob right now)
We have been trying to get her to sleep in her new little bed (right beside ours) but she just will not settle.
She sleeps a lot during the day, but when it comes to night, she will just have no part of it.
We are also trying to get her to lay in a little rocker during the day so we can have a little break from holding her (she is a 9.7 pound girl, so she gets quite heavy haha)
We are just not quite sure what to do when it comes to crying? do we leave her to cry for a little bit so she gets used to it? (this is very hard as I just want to pick her up as soon as she cries) or do we introduce her another way?
The same goes for bed, I know she is cluster feeding at the moment, but her mum really needs to get some kind of sleep at night (even a hour at a time would be a good start)
Anyway, I am very new to this, my first little one, so any advice would be amazing!
