My first was very much like this and had reflux as well. Had colic for months too. For the day time, I wore him a lot. Like A LOT. Also, I reclined with pillows and held him to sleep on my chest at night times too, until he was about 4-5 months, then we started walking him to sleep in the stroller every night, and transitioned to a bedtime routine. By 6/7 months, he was putting himself to sleep at night in his own crib. We also really liked the rock and play (unfortunately recalled). Once he was asleep, I’d lay a swaddle into the rock and play, put him on it and swaddle him in there (never alone in the room). That helped him sleep a little longer, though not as long as when I held him. So I really just had him nap on my back a lot.
