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!
They offer a lot of advice that makes you go "Of course! So that's why he did that."
All those crunchy things and more Amma to DS1(9.2007)
