  • Swaddling. It might keep him from waking himself up. My son hated it, but it's worked wonders for others.

  • Is he cranky or upset? Or just up and curious? Maybe he's just not sleepy. Baby's get insonmia too. If he's sleeing but fighting it, he could just be a very curiuos little boy. Some babies like background noise and some like silence to sleep. Some like to be warm and swaddled. Maybe a mobile with soft music or a swing for some motion.

    If he's upset when you lay him down, it could be that he's sick. But I don't have enough information to go on for that.

    Congrats on the little one!
