3 day old, bad night


Hi all

This is #2 baby and whilst she seems really chilled, I am getting very upset about the fact I canít put her down at night. I want to, if right next to me, because of sids, but Every time I do she wakes up, gets upset, feeds endlessly...
And the One time I got her down last night she promptly pooped...

She sleeps fine on my chest but is that safe? Iím not sure it is atm as I am So tired, especially post csection.

Cosleeping I am very pro, but where is your child physically? I want to put her on a flat surface but sheís totally not ok with it.

I wonder if the trick will be her growing slightly, currently sheís too small to handle feeding like that.
Thanks for replying!

Firstly congratulations hon x

My little one is now 10 Months. I was really wary of co sleeping initially due to sids but in the end I did same as becsboo after a while, u need to do what u feel comfortable with yourself. I still tried to put him in crib as much as poss but it did help me get some sleep when he was with me and he slept better also. He goes in his cot fine now and drops off to sleep alone after a feed and a bit drowsy which definitely helps as Iíve got other children. He still gets in for a cuddle part of the night at Times so has best of both. You will find your way soon, u must still be so tired and uncomfortable from the delivery .. hugs x

My son was like this for the first week or two, then became more and more content with being put down. I sat up at night reclined with him on my chest and would fall asleep like that sometimes, although it was not a very deep sleep because I was nervous about him suffocating in my giant engorged boobs. I know it's not recommended and can be dangerous, but sometimes exhaustion takes over and you will fall asleep no matter how hard you try not to! I always kept trying to put him down, and often could at about 2 or 3 am once he was in a super deep sleep. My son wouldn't tolerate being put down during the day for the first three months, but at night he was ok with it after about 2 weeks. Hopefully the same happens for you. Hang in there, it will get better! Oh, and neither of my babies were able/willing to feed side lying at that age. My daughter became a pro at it after about 4 months old, my son still doesn't really like to and only will if he is really hungry.
