My son is 2 weeks and 3 days old. For the past two days he has nursed every half hour and won't stay asleep. He either sleeps while cuddling and then wakes up soon as I move or put him down, or starts screaming and twitching out in his sleep and then wakes up and it takes me ten minutes to get him to stop screaming. I finally gave him 2oz of formula to see if he was just hungry but that didn't seem to help anything. Please help, I haven't slept a wink in two days and can't go much longer with this pattern

Have you tried burping him? I am a first time mommy, my daughter is 5 weeks old. And I had the exact same trouble you did and still do. I nurse and bottle feed my daughter. But I didn't know that she needed to burp. So I would lay her down and she would start crying. So I called my mother crying. My mom said I needed to burp her. Who knew it was that simple. Sometimes she falls asleep during feedings so its hard to burp her, but usually she will let me know and sometimes she will sleep through it. I do still have trouble trying to burp her. Keep your chin up momma, I know its challenging! :)

Try a sound machine. It will sound like it did before he came into the world. Also try swaddling. It seemed to help my daughter at his age. I hope this will help
