As soon as I walk away from his cot he wakes up screaming

my baby is 9 weeks old and i`m having trouble settleing him and putting him to sleep. As soon as i walk away from his cot he wakes up screaming, even though i make sure he doesn`t have any wind. The only way i can get him to sleep is by nusring him til he falls asleep or cuddle up next to him and even then i don`t sleep for fear of rolling on him.
I have two other children who slept through the night at 8 weeks old.
Please help as the sleepless nights sre starting to take their toll.

Answer: Hi Janet, Try following our settling program it will teach baby to sleep independently and you should also incorporate a feed/play/sleep routine so you can catch the tired signs. Cheers, Maree
