3 week old that is extremely fussy and irritable at night
Hello I have a 3 week old that is extremely fussy and irritable on a night. He usually grunts in his sleep and cry’s when he’s put down any time from 11pm-2:30am in this time me and my partner are lucky to have a 15 minute period where we get any sleep. In this time period he screams and cries louder than any other time period. Picking him up seems to sooth him enough to stop and once in this time he’ll cry and wake up for a feed but we aren’t sure what to do as we can’t just keep picking him up and stay wide awake for 3.5 hours a night. He also struggles with his wind on a night but is usually fine on a day too. Any suggestions or advice would be great.
And if you have time have a look at the youtube video "How to calm a crying baby - Dr. Robert Hamilton Demonstrates "The Hold" (official). This video was a great help to me!
