My 11 week old won't sleep by himself ._. We moved recently so we haven't been able to take the crib, so he's slept in our arms till he was all the way out, then we put him in a snugrocker. Now we have his bassinet set up, so we want to try putting him in there...he won't go to sleep...the moment he gets set down, he wakes up! x_x .... what happened to all the "babies don't get spoiled." shit I heard before....ah...lol 

edit:
;) guess I confused a lot of you guys. I know already that babies don't become spoiled too early, I was just kidding about that part. Little one just seems like he's spoiled because he's clingy, but I know he's not. :P

    He probably just feels safe and secure in your arms

    He's not spoiled. He needs you. Your breath and heart rate help him regulate his own. Your scent and arms comfort him. I promise, he's not mentally capable of being spoiled yet. Give him what he needs and both your lives will be easier.

    I can't sleep with him though D: I can't even hold him too long because he overheats WAYYY too easily and sweats. Even with a high power fan and him stripped to his diaper :(

    A problem a lot of the time is their dislike of the bassinet if they are not used to it. Every time I changed where my children slept they did this

    I guess since he sweats he doesn't need you after all....
    Ever think that a baby who sweats like that might ought to see a dr?
