My baby is 2 months old. He fidgets constantly, so much that people get tired holding him (me included). He wants to be upright, no - now he wants to be in a cradle hold - now over the shoulder - now facing front... ad nauseum. He keeps doing this most every waking moment (but sleeps well, thank goodness!) He hates the sling - doesn't settle down in it at all. Plus, he cries uncontrollably when we put him down. And while I'd love to hold him all day, I have a clingy toddler and household to take care of too! I'm at a total loss of what to do. I have been feeling absolutely horrible putting him down to cry sometimes but I get to the point where I need to take a break and walk away (and cry). Anyone else go through this or know of anything I can do?
Swaddling helps him go to sleep, but if he's not drowsy, he gets upset being swaddled. I'm looking forward to when he has enough neck control to wear on my back, maybe that would work?
