My six week old little girl will only sleep lying on my chest, we have tried everything to no avail. Up until recently me and my partner were taking turns staying awake but he’s returned to work and so of course this isn’t manageable.

I’ve been falling asleep with her on my chest with myself propped up and ensuring there is no loose bedding or pillows around but I still feel very uncomfortable and worried, could you offer any advice? Thank you.

Let her fall asleep on your chest and when she’s in a deep sleep put her in her cot/Moses basket. Start with her getting used to waking up there and not on your chest.
