I'm a bit worried I'm doing things wrong as regards my LO sleeping and any reassurance/advice would be great. The main problem is, he will only sleep being held and won't go into his moses basket unless he's in a deep sleep otherwise he will cry until he's held or fed again. Trying to get things done can be a nightmare! Yesterday he didn't sleep from 6pm until 3am and i could see he was so tired, so I've got him sleeping in my arms atm so he doesn't get overtired later (not sure if this is a growth spurt so some sort of phase he's going thru). His routine the last couple of days have totally not happened. I think I've only successfully put him in his moses basket once while he was sleepy and he's drifted off to sleep on his own. I've tried putting something of mine (like a top) so he can 'smell me', I've tried swaddling him but he seems to get frustrated when I do this, I've tried putting him in his moses basket while he's sleepy and I sit next to the basket so he knows I'm still there - but no success with getting him to sleep without being held. Am I spoiling him by holding him to sleep and making a rod for my own back as he gets older? Or is this 'normal' for a baby his age and he should just grow out of it? Is there anything I should be doing to help him become more of an independent sleeper?
