  • Other than checking for something sticking him or too tight, which you probably did, I can't think of anything other than cuddling him, which you did.

  • Also, double check each finger and toe. Little hairs can get wrapped around them. Otherwise, some days really stink. You know how someday you feel like you woke up on the wrong side of the bed? So did he.

  • Sometimes they just want to be held by mommy. When my dd is teething, I end up holding her a lot of night. If that is what works, then do it.

  • Just admit defeat that your baby rules the roost. After you adjust to the baby the baby will grow and when he's fifty years old he'll adjust to you!! My son's nearly 25 yo and I remember feeling like he wrapped me in saran wrap losts of times with him wrapped with me!!! Put baby in a tummy or hip wrap and carry on. Ear plugs saved me, maybe try that.
