Hi mommies! My baby is 41 days old today. For the past one week he wakes up around 1am and cries uncontrollably. He is quiet when held and restarts crying as soon as he is put down. How to deal with this? It's not possible to hold him all night :/

Maybe he is demanding feed.; Have you tried that?; Also swaddle him and put him back to sleep instead of making a habit of just holding him.

Kavya normal with 41 days baby, do not worry. He needs your comfort. If you are breastfeeding him then lie down and breast feed, he will doze to sleep. Things will get better, do not worry.

Yes he's on breastfeeding and he does this immediately after feed also.. that's why the concern

Satarupa B Kaur he doesn't like to be swaddled either, he cries harder trying to get out of it

Use a subtle sound such as sleepiest fading sounds. Distract with a toy and try.
