Kids are at the inlaws house and I was planning a sleep in but got woken by a message at 7:30!

Other then a couple of 5-10 minute cat naps, 6 Day Old DS has been awake for 7 hours from 9pm-4am.
There is nothing obviously wrong with him ! He's had a nappie change x3, been fed several times, been carried, burped, rocked, wrapped, swaddled, unwrapped, talked to, massaged and I even tried bribery but he doesn't understand the concept yet!
DP and I have tried taking it in turns to settle him but nothing works!
I'm about ready to give up, get out of bed and just start the new day!

It's hard in those first couple of weeks- he is adjusting as much as you are.
I spent the first few weeks with DD on our recliner, all night long. She slept ok during the day, nights were always hard.
Love to dream swaddle ups are awesome. Have you found yours yet?
And, don't feel as though you can't call for help!!

Obviously all he needed was for me to complain to go to sleep! I wrote that vent he slowed down and by the time I'd got up to get another water he was asleep!
In one final act of "this baby will go to sleep" we found his swaddle - put away sensibly it was! And propped his bassinet up a little like he liked it in the hospital and he slept - for 5 hours giving us some sleep.
Now dishes and washing are done. Tea is organised thanks to frozen meals and I'm showered and wearing actual clothes! This isn't too bad after all... She says until 1am!

I've just come off 3 nights and have slept poorly today and feel completely zapped of energy. I feel like I need a shower to wake myself up a bit more but I just can't be bothered. I hate having no energy after crap sleep.

Trying to decide.
3 x 12 hr shifts + 2 days of uni
5 x 8 hour shifts + 2 days of uni.
The 3 + 2 is tempting... But I don't know if they'll be the same days, so I'm possibly going to be spending 12 hours at work then 6 at uni.
It does guarantee me two days off though, whereas the other option doesn't guarantee me any.
