sleep......what Is That?

my five week old son started off life sleeping three to four hours a night. and now it seems he is only sleeping an hour and a half to two hours at a time. also, his father is not very helpful during the night time hours and is away all day, so this leaves me with an around the clock job going on two to three hours of sleep. the baby will not sleep flat on his back, which makes everything even harder. help! what can i do to help the baby sleep longer.

How to Transition from Swaddling for Naps and Nighttime Sleep?

Hi - I have a 5 month old who has been swaddled tightly (arms and legs) for sleeping for naps and nighttime since birth. We found that she would wake herself up if not tightly swaddled. Now that she is getting bigger and stronger, we are finding that she is getting out of the swaddle and waking herself up. We are using a large square blanket made specifically for swaddling.
