Our newborn is 3 weeks old. He will fight to stay awake for HOURS at a time. I know he's tired because its a struggle for him to keep his eyes open. He'll close them for a minute, then force them back open. He was up for 5 hours last night and I KNOW he was tired. He was super fussy from being so tired. Did/does anybody else have this problem? Is it something that your little ones grew out of or are we in for a tough road as he gets older? Did anything work to get your little one to calm down and just sleep? We turn all the lights off at 8 and keep things calm and relaxed but it doesn't always matter.
