Dd is 2 weeks old. She will not sleep unless I'm holding her. I'm getting no sleep because I'm up all night. I really don't want to co sleep with her, but I feel like that's my only option now. Please any ideas!?!?!

    Is she so strong she is hiding you down?

    Cry it out! You need some sleep to care for the kid properly.

    Just make sure she is fed, changed and buried before bedtime.

    I would let my son fall asleep on my chest and then transfer him over to his pack and play in our bedroom...We ended up co sleeping for a bit. He is now 3 months and sleeping in his crib in his room across the hall.

    Yes, but she wakes up after 15 mins.

    *holding

    2 week olds seem way too young to cry it out. Crying is a newborns way to communicate and doesn't help bonding if you let them cry it out so early.

    She falls asleep while I'm holding her, then I try to put her in her crib. 2-3 mins after I lay her down she's awake and screaming.

    I'm just worried about rolling on her or something.
