I`m wondering if somebody could give some good advice about my son`s sleeping habit. He is five weeks old and is only willing to sleep in my lap. He falls asleep after feeding and no matter how long I wait, he wakes up right away when I put him down. He also cries every time he is awake unless he is at my breast feeding and me holding him. (he does like to sleep w/ and be held by his father also)
He is a beautiful healthy baby and I wonder if he will grow out of this habit, or if this is something I have to break somehow. Could it be that he is a "high need" baby just needing constant attention? Oh, and by the way, the "let him cry it out" method just does not work with him, b/c he just cries until he gets picked up no matter how long it takes.
I appreciate your advice
