Re: Another newborn sleep thread

I absolutely think you need to swaddle him. I prefer large knit blankets like the ones from Gymboree or waffle weave blankets (those are harder to find) and I do a super snug swaddle with both arms in. you may also be missing his sleep cues and not putting him down soon enough. at 6 weeks, he probably wont be able to stay awake happily for more than an hour at a time. also try a darkened room with white noise. put it on loud, they dont mind! toys r us sells a cd with washer/dryer sounds and that one works well for my kids and daycare kids
