My baby is about 5 weeks old, and for the last 4 days he has been having troubles sleeping when he is tired, he'll cry and cry till i put him in a front carrier, in his car seat (and we go for a ride) or till he wears himself out.
I try rocking him to sleep and singing to him, but he still cries. I don't want him to get use to falling asleep w/motion either. He also cries when he is bored, i try to walk around with him, and he stops, but i can't ever seem to set him down and play with him..sometimes i can in his swing or on his changing table, but that's it..he'd probably be in his front carrier, but again, i don't want him getting to use to that happening every time..there must be something else i can do.. help!

This is what I did if my baby cried and I did not really know why she was crying. I would Give her a bath, Change her diaper, feed her burp her. Made sure she was not sick,had a fever. After that I would just let her cry for a while.
Have you tried sitting down and laying him on your lap and bumping your legs up and down or swaying them back and forth? It is an easier way of soothing then walking back and forth.

Most babies fall asleep at the breast. The milk they get after 10-15 min is high in fat and makes them sleepy. The hormones also make them sleepy. Often babies will only sleep at the breast. This sleeping time counts as napping.
