My baby is 7 weeks old. He stretches a lot almost most of the time. He stretched a lot in his sleep which lead him to no sleep. I need to carry him up then he'll fall asleep. Put him back down but he start to stretch again & eventually cry. Dunno what is bothering him. Diapers all changed & even fed him. Help anyone?

lol Wrong kind of stretching Sonia... Any mother would actually KNOW what type of stretching the OP is talking about.

I agree w/ trying to swaddle your baby. If his arms are wrapped comfortably and securely against his body he will not be able to stretch and wake himself up. If he's not easily or happily swaddled.. you could try holding him while he sleeps, but that could be exhausting for you. ♥

Are you sure he is stretching and it's not just that he does not have good control over his arms? Swaddle him.
