We started out with a side sleeper, and I found myself nearly falling out of the bed to be closer to our son. We switch between an in-bed bassinet and him sleeping next to me. He rolled over today for the first time so we need to ditch the bassinet. I’m nervous about going to 100% co-sleeping. Can anyone share safety tips or even products that made you feel comfortable?
Do my baby is 2mo, and throughput the day I just feed him, say goodnight and put him on his crib. He does great and put himself to sleep. No crying at all. Every single time. If I sing or swing him he stays awake. Now, at the time that I have to put him again at 8pm, after he slept from like 5 until 6:30/7, he doesn’t.

My son is 9 days old and his umbilical cord thing fell off. Am I able to clean the skin underneath where it was with anything? I don’t want to hurt him.

Is there anything we should / shouldn’t do when our son has big cries before bed? We currently try to soothe him but it’s hard to tell if it does much for him - perhaps it’s more so for us to feel like we’re doing something - but we hate to “give up”. Would love some thoughts!
How often should she be sleeping? How do you manage with breastfeeding?
It’s been a long while since I had newborn so I need a little help/ reminder. My daughter is 3 weeks. She kind of just wakes and sleeps in different intervals on different days. Should I try to wake her from sleep around 7 and keep her up so she can sleep longer at night. Or is she too young for that right now! Should just let her sleep and wake on her own terms?
I’m worried that I’m not interacting with my newborn enough if I’m not constantly talking or singing to him. How much did you interact with your newborn vs just quietly holding the baby.
When I bottle fed my son ive started to noticed that he leaks milk out the sides of his mouth and ive tried different bottles with different nipples cuz he was a preemie so I'm using that size but no matter what I do I cant get him to latch on good enough. What should I do?
