What would you do for a baby (10-weeks) who consistently wakes up 30 minutes after he goes down for a nap?

  • I cried a lot - my son had colic and would rarely sleep and did this for the first 4 -5 months - is your little one waking upset? or just doesn't sleep long? how are his stools?

  • I wouldn't put the baby down.

  • Is your baby gassy? Maybe milicon could help. I too wouldn't put the baby down. Just hold and cuddle.

  • He's not in pain. Sometimes he wakes up quietly, then gets upset when he finds himself alone. He sleeps fine while I'm holding him, but I'm not supermom, I can't hold him all day long. I can't babywear because my sling, wrap, and carrier all hurt my back. Even if they didn't, I just can't wear him while I'm cooking and doing a lot of bending over, and he'd only be happy if I held still too long (I don't know how moms do it). He just wants constant attention and movement.
