Sleep
My baby is 2 and a half weeks old and while I am absolutely in love with him and enjoy every moment, these first few weeks have been harder than I imagined. Breastfeeding has been a big challenge but I am now working with a lactation consultant and things are starting to improve.  He also won"t sleep more than 15 minutes unless I hold him or he is propped in his boppy, which I know is not safe, but I also need to sleep.  I have tried a million things - including swaddling and using the positioners to have him sleep on his side and nothing really works. He is now is 2 and a half weeks old and it is getting a little better.  Has this happened to anyone else and does it get better as they age and their nervous systems mature?  It seems to me that he startles himself when on his back and that wakes him up.  Or does anyone have any tips for helping him sleep on his own and on his back?   Thanks.
