My 2.5 year old still needs to be nursed or held to sleep a lot of the time and so does my 10 month old. In the grand scheme of things, 11 weeks old is still really tiny. I don't think I would worry about it. You have our permission to hold your baby and rock your baby to sleep for as long as you want. My 5 year and my 8 year old can put themselves to sleep so there is proof that helping them to sleep until they are 2 or 3 is not going to ruin them or spoil them.
