So my son is 10 weeks old, and I exclusively BF. He does NOT want to fall asleep during the day. Its becoming a problem because he is cranky ALL DAY.
I put him in his swing and he dozes off for a few min maybe an hour at most. By dinner time he is so sleepy and tired that he cries and cries until I give him a warm bath and nurse him to sleep. He is so exhausted he ends up sleeping 8 hours at night.
How can I get him to take a long nap during the day?? Its a crying battle to get him to fall asleep during the day. Also, he will sleep in my arms during the day after he nurses, but as soon as I put him down, he wakes up. Ugh!

During the day you nurse your baby to sleep and you hold your baby skin to skin while the baby sleeps. Baby doesn't have to be laying in a bed by itself for it to count.
