Difficult newborn

I promise i love my son so much, but he is honestly very hard to deal with ..... he is extremely fussy. He won’t let me put him down . He’s too young for the “cry it out” method. He only 2 weeks old (he will be three weeks Sunday). last night i literally had to hold him as we slept . It sounds cute and all but my arm was killing me because of how i had to hold him to ensure he wouldn’t suffocate. Plus i didn’t really sleep from worrying about him . I’m already at my wits end . I’m exhausted and emotionally drained. Is this normal ? Its to the point where I’m worrying something may be wrong .

It’s normal baby could be having colic or gassy . Colic goes away on its own usually by 3 to 4 months . Make sure to burp your baby . I burp my baby after every ounce . My baby is 1 moth right now and have 4 ounces every 3 to 4 hours . (Drinking formula )

This sounds exactly like my girl as a newborn, it is sooooooo hard! We ended up bedsharing (if you do this look up how to do it safely) which helped with her sleep but she was a very fussy and crying baby for 4 months. Now at 7 months she cries a lot less and is happier but still so so clingy so I can barely ever put her down without her crying. It gets better with time but that doesn’t make it any easier in the moment.

Congratulations on your little one; this is perfectly normal newborn behaviour, (read up on fourth trimester) baby doesnd even know he born yet, he finds comfort in your smell, warmth and heartbeat. if your breastfeeding baby is cluster feeding to help with your supply and how are you finding initial latch? How’s nappy output? Try and follow the safe sleep 7 to co sleeping also try a wrap and sling and sleep when baby is sleeping Also read up on purple crying and the witching hour It will and does get better they go through so many leaps and growth spurts at this age. You got this mama your doing greatXx

Are you swaddling? A lot of people think their babies hate it but they don’t. Look up Taking Cara Babies. She sells newborn to 3 years old courses on all things babies but especially sleep. It changed the game for me! She also has free advice on her blog. She’s awesome! It’ll get better good luck!

This is normal. He’s so precious. I remember the sore arms and the healing process. Your body will eventually adjust and get stronger.
