Even though our second daugther is not a new born anymore (she’s 7 months old), she all of a sudden started to hate being put down at night. Thes first months were actually ok, but then it seemed like she understood what was going on and started to crave for one parent to hold her. We solved this temporaliy by buying a huge bed, so that she can sleep next to one of us – mostly myslef as the wife needs to get up early to go to work. Why this happened I have no answer to though.
Has it been like this since day one for you (even though he’s only 5 weeks old)?
