My 5 week old son will not sleep. It's going on 3 days and he has not slept for more than a half hour at a time before he wakes up crying - this is happening day and night. I'm not expexting him to sleep through the night at 5 weeks, but previously he would eat every 3 to 4 hours and would go right back down. Now he's awake all day day and night and can't settle himself down. He will fall asleep on my chest, but as soon as I put him down he wakes up and starts crying. I tried letting him self soothe but it doesn't work. I can hear his belly rumbling and tried gripe water but it doesn't seem to work. Anyone have any advice? I'm exhausted and need him to start sleeping again
