This is my first post but I've been reading many if the posts for several weeks now.
I have an 8 1/2 week old healthy (thank God) baby boy. He's my second! I already have a 5 year son who is thankfully attending full time kindergarten. My little guy is all over the map with sleep except That he does do his best sleep at night. Meaning 3 maybe 4 hour stretch a tone time. I've been reading The happiest baby on the block. So it recommends wearing your baby in a sling which I have been doing all day since he was born. Now I'm trying to put him down in bassinet for naps and he will only do about 10 to 25 minutes max! It has been brutal trying to get him to go to sleep the last 2 nights. But that being said he did do 4 1/2 hours straight. Am I sleep depriving him in the day? But I can't wear him all day either. He's way too heavy! Ugh. Any suggestions to help wean him from the sling? Thanks!!!!
