My little man is 5 weeks and I can't get him to settle! He is in his cot crying and I can't help he is rejecting the boob, rejecting his dummy and won't go to sleep what can I do?!?

How do I get him to settle???

Have you tried a warm bath? Or massage to relax him?

Give him cuddles, pick him up and walk around with him, push him in pram.

Push in the pram always worked for us at that age.

Have you tried a swing? Will he settle if you cuddle him? Is he swaddled?

At antenatal classes they suggested skin to skin. No idea if it'll work but may be worth a try. Good luck

Another thought, wrapping DS up and quite loudly - as in not too soft - shushing, right near his ear, in a continuous way used to work well too, whilst rocking and then transferring to a moving pram.

I bought the DVD 'happiest baby on the block' before I knew our baby has reflux. It is fantastic and worked really well

Try a radio in the room but not on a station so it's just static or a fan. Sometimes the white noise helps them settle.
Another thing that worked for DS was to sit next to him and with a slightly cupped hand pat his chest in a rhythmic pattern.

Yes white noise works really well for us too. I downloaded a free white noise app on my phone and played it through that. Calmed bub down instantly. You have to start with it loud enough for them to hear it through their crying though, and once they settle down you can turn it down quieter :-) hope bub has calmed down a bit for you xxx
