Re: Newborn sleeping help

If you dont have a big enough swaddle blanket that can be wrapped around tightly, in a cinch, you can cut up an old cotton sheet and use, or even a big towel..although in this weather, a towel might make him too warm.

As for giving your nipples a break, for the next 2 days, WHENEver you see him sleeping, apply lansinoh on the nipples and air them out..like stay naked.

I would also suggest a dose of gripewater/Mylicon to calm his tummy.

And most importantly, please go thro these websites while you NAK!
http://www.kellymom.com/ and
http://www.llli.org/

They offer a lot of advice that makes you go "Of course! So that's why he did that."
