Guess what? Sometimes babies don’t sleep at all at night. And sometimes they do sleep but only when someone stays awake to hold them. And they don’t care if the holder never sleeps again. Babies can be sneaky that way.
I suppose the evening fussiness/not sleeping anywhere but Mama’s arms is very common and the (supposedly) comforting truth is that most babies outgrow it by three or four months but on this side of the crying that seems VERY far away.
Still, he’s cute as a button.
