  • Heh I knoqw what your going through, My two month old does it too. Sometimes its best to have them sleep on your chest. Because they heard it for 9 months so its comforting. Me son slept through the WHOLE night twhen I do it.

  • Try the miracle blanket. You can purchase it online at it saved our lives. My husband was complaining to his co-worker about how tired he was and he explained how this blanket made their baby sleep through the night. I didn't believe it would work and it did! My baby slept though the night. The blanket was invented by a doctor.

  • My baby was the same way.
    My suggestions...
    Sleep when the baby sleeps. Don't worry about housework.
    Develop a schedule for him - same type of thing at the same rough time everyday - with 3 naps - with the first nap starting 1 hour after the time you get him out of bed in the morning - get him up at the same time every morning, even weekends.
    Take walks in the stroller
    roll the stroller over a bump in the floor
    white noise in the room (a fan or white noise CD like For Crying Out Loud)
    bouncy seats, infant swings, sleeping in his car seat
    Some will work only once, some will keep working.

    Also, have him checked for reflux. In the end, that was part of my DD's problem. I also found that she would only sleep on her tummy so I gave in and let her. Try that LAST due to the risk of SIDS.
    Once he's better rested, he will sleep more easily. I know, sounds like a chicken-&-egg type problem. But with patience he will
