Feeding all day, hardly sleeps PIOG

Noah is almost a month and he has a heck of a time sleeping in the day for more then 45 min. maybe an hr. He uses me as a pacifier (hates real ones) which would be fine if it werent for the fact that I have a 20 month old. Also he eats in small doses sometimes only 10 min and then is done again and doses briefly then back up at it, part is because my oldest, Ely is loud and constantly wakes him up right as I am trying to put him down, I have told her a million times to be quiet but I dont think she understands. At night he barely eats and sleeps most of the night tucked against my side, when he fusses I wake up latch him on and fall asleep until he makes a sound again and that goes usually from 7 or so pm till 7 am. I want him to be more content in the day time so that my toddler can have more attention. Any ideas? AND he hates swaddling and the swing unless he is half asleep.

Do you have a sling or wrap? My kids are almost 16 months apart and that worked for us. My daughter nursed like your son, 5-10 minutes and that was all she needed, she was a very efficient nurser... My son would nurse for 25-45 minutes sometimes so they were very different. IDK what to do to keep her quiet. My son would read books, watch a movie, eat a snack etc. next to me on the couch while I nursed his sister.

I am a Canadian,breastfeeding (it IS best, there is nothing even close to that nutrition and bond), co sleeping, extended rear facing (if you don't rear face to the maximum of your seat, you're NOT doing all you can to protect your child), baby wearing, Non spanking (I want my kids to respect me, not fear me) ANTI- CIO, homemade baby food making, cloth diapering, organic (chemical free household!) recycling mama to TWO! My husband is my equal and best friend, not my master and I believe basic health care should be a human RIGHT, not a privilege.
