My one month old will only settle on me or my partner. Any tips on how to get them to self settle? Especially in the night - the night feeds are dragging!

Hey, I don’t have too much advice but just wanted to say that it’s totally normal and you’re not alone.

Hang in there, it does get easier. They're basically just adjusting to life on the outside! My little boy is 14 weeks now and goes down in his carrycot for most of his naps and night times are so easy now. Try to enjoy the cuddles as they don’t stay little for long.

Hiya, it is hard but it’s also absolutely normal for them to want you. I found reading up about the fourth trimester gave me a bit of a different attitude to it and I’m trying to ‘enjoy’ night feeds a bit more and see it as time with just me and baby.

They’re only little for such a short time! If anyone tells you ‘you’re making a rod for your own back’ don’t listen to them!
