My 11 week old son won't sleep!! I'm completely exhausted. He only sleeps for two hours at a time at night. He fights being put to sleep, I spent hours a day rocking him. He's EBF and we are co-sleeping because its the only way I can keep him asleep. He also has a hard time napping. He has been this way since day one. Help!?

Is he napping in the car, stroller or bouncy seat? Is he sleeping for long periods during the day?Does he burp easily after eating? Does he fall asleep before nursing on both sides? If you are breast feeding him in the co-sleeping position, he may be falling asleep before his belly is full, and so he may not be getting full enough to keep him asleep for more than two hours. And if he is not burping, the gas maybe waking him up.

Has your pediatrician given you any recommendations?

It's hard to give you advice without a total picture of your situation.
