My 7 week old son will not sleep by himself. During the day he will only nap if he is being held or in a carrier that I can wear. I try everyday to put him down but he always wakes up. I leave him to see if he'll fall back to sleep but he ends up crying so I pick him up. At night he will only sleep in my bed. I have tried laying him on his side and that does not work. I have also tried swaddling him but he hates it. I have even tried holding him until he is in a deep sleep and then laying him down but he still wakes up. I want to break him of these habits but I have not been successful. Is this common? Please help?
