I enjoy wearing my newborn in a sling or Boba 3g carrier during the day. I am still getting the hang of nursing in the carriers, but my tiny little girl enjoys all the time close to Mom. She is still in the 6 pound range approaching 7 so she just fits comfortably to wear now.
So she is content all day, but what about night? Our bed isn't big enough to co-sleep so we have a snuggle nest nessled between us, but after all the time up against me baby doesn't like to be put down to sleep, even next to me. I often sleep with an arm in the snuggle nest, or my head close so she can feel my breath. Mom needs some sleep -- advise? She is 2 1/2 weeks now, and wakes up every 2-3 hours to nurse during the day, but every 30 minutes to an hour or so at night with few 2-3 hour stretches in there. I don't expect her to sleep through the night, but 2-3 hour stretches would be nice.
