Re: 6 week old sleeping issues
Have you looked into babywearing? Visit the thread and you will get lots of ideas of various slings/wraps to try. That way your lo can sleep while you are free to get things done, such as read these forums!
My baby was the same way and he is finaaaalllllyyyyyy getting a lil independence! He can goto sleep by himself at night and take naps in the bed by himself. It's nice. But yeah we got through the first 2 months napping while we were babywearing or I just slept with him.
Keep trying the sleep in the swing thing too. Sometimes they won't like it right away but get used to it after many tries of being put in there.
