    Im sorry your having a tough time. It's so hard to remember to eat in the early days. I used to always chose sleep over food! Has anyone got an Ergo carrier you can use/borrow? They come with a comfy Newborn Insert. Maybe try your second hand buy/sell/swap pages. Not every baby likes the baby bjorn.

    Also. Please don't forget that if he is fed, changed and not in pain and safe then it's OK for him to cry a little while you eat. You must look after yourself. Xxxx

    This. Sometimes it's the only way i get to eat!! It's not going to hurt bub to cry for 5 mins while you gulp down some food - took me awhile to realize this! Lol

    Omg. I can't believe what I just did. I successfully transferred DS to the cot so I can eat. He woke up, realised he wasn't in my arms, upset and he wouldn't stop crying no matter how I soothe him. I put him down in the cot and walked away. He cried louder and louder. I went back in to pick up this little poor guy and put him tight on my chest. He stopped immediately. I am such a bad mom.

    It's ok to put them in their cot and walk away sometimes if you need a break. a few minutes of crying won't harm them.

    I know you're trying everything but be kind to yourself as well.

    Maybe try the carrier a few more times too when he's in a good mood. It takes them a bit to get used to it. Put them in and walk around stomping for a bit and go outside.

    You are not a bad mother. You are trying hard everyday to do the right thing.

    You are not a bad mum. I had been trying to get ds2 to sleep for an hour. Dh comes home from work, told me to leave him and let him cry. Before we even got to 10 mins he's asleep.
    I'm not a huge fan of cry it out, it makes me feel terrible, but it works for our ds2. We only let him go a max of 10-15 mins and we are always in the same room with him. He just needs to cry sometimes.

    If that's the case then there's no such thing as a good mum!

    Babies cry when you change their nappy. They cry when you get them dressed from a bath. They cry when attending to your toddler. They cry if you go to the toilet. They cry in the car if it's a long trip. They cry because it's a Monday...

    Babies cry. It's ok. You can't stop it. Mines crying right now whilst I'm getting her bath ready.

    You are a good mum for looking after yourself too

    Hugs xxx the guilt does fade when they get older and you realise they are ok

    How many of you darkened the room for day time nap for your bub? I read somewhere that one should get them to have day and night association and thus the suggestion of exposing daylight during the day. Does this not apply for newborn (< 3m)?

    I am not sure if i have mentioned above. DS started being able to settle and fall asleep easily in the evening lately. Such a blessing even though he still needs to feed every 3-4 hrs. Interrupted sleep wtih gas pain. I'm fine with that. it is a major improvement as compared to weeks of difficulty around the clock with sleep in the past. Day time nap is still an issue. Now, i am wondering if this has something to do with the light.

    What's all about exposing them to noise and light during the day as suggested by the book?
