I am wondering if anyone has tips on getting a newborn on a sleep schedule? My baby will be 2 weeks on Wednesday and she will not sleep in her crib or bassinet. I know she is young to be sleeping long stretches yet, but if we aren't holding her she wakes up. I am lucky if she stays sleeping in the bassinet long enough for me to use the washroom!! I lay her down after she falls asleep because I have been told this will get her used to sleeping in there. It is very frustrating though because she is only in there a minute at a time and as soon as I.pick her up she is fine again. Am I doing something wrong or am I just impatient because I am so very tired?

My biggest concern is not having the energy to look after my 3 yr old son. He is a very independant child but I am wondering what things will be like in a few weeks time. Will he get bored of being in the house all day? Will I have the energy to take them out at all. Or is my overtired brain over thinking all of this??

You are not doing anything wrong. A 2 week old has no business being on a schedule. Honestly, they eat drink pee poop and sleep when they need it. She is just a new baby that needs security, warmth, love and protection while being in her momma's arms. If you can, maybe have someone over so you can take a nap while they are taking care of her.
