My 2 1/2 month old son has gotten into a schedule where he pretty much sleeps only at night (not the worst thing...I know). He may sleep for an hour or two during the day, but that's it. I take my son to work with me, but it is REALLY difficult to get anything done because he is always awake and wants to be held.
The only real way I know of to get him to sleep is to swaddle him really tight and put the white noise on right next to his head. This is what we do at night. But I read that swaddling too much is bad for babies and can result in problems with their hips. Also I feel like if he is swaddled all night, that he probably wants to stretch out a little during the day and I shouldn't be trying to force him to sleep.
So that's the predicament. I want my son to be happy and free to be on his own schedule, but it seems weird that he never sleeps during the day, and my patience with working at my computer with a fussy baby on my lap is wearing thin.
