I’m at 3 months right now and I would say it’s gotten better as I’ve gotten to know him better. I would suggest trying a different type of carrier too. The ergo, even with the infant insert is just better for older babies and more for wearing out and about rather than around the house. You need a cloth wrap that keeps him close and snuggled up to you, like a k’tan or a solly wrap. Also, you have to give a baby that young more time to adjust to a new situation than just a minute or 2 (I know 2 minutes of screaming baby can be excruciating). My DS screamed for the first 5 min before settling into a nice long nap the 1st few times I wore him in the k’tan, I encourage you to try a different wrap and give him a few more minutes. Look for a local babywearing group near you where you can try different kinds.

My Dear Daughter is 3 months old and I think I can only now say I have gotten the hang of parenting. Take peoples advice with a pinch of salt, do what works for your baby AND u. It doesn’t feel like it now but u will get the hang of it and believe it or not u will sleep again, not the way u used to before baby but u will sleep again. Love and hugs to u.

I cried the whole day my husband went back to work and after a few days it got better.  The worst time for me was around 4-6 weeks.  The sleep deprivation and reality that life is truly different set in.  By 9 weeks I was feeling much better.

My son will be 5 months old next week and, as much as I wanted to throttle everyone who told me this during the first few weeks, it does get better/easier/less all consuming.  For me, breastfeeding was a struggle and took about 2 months to “get right” – that’s about when things started to seem more manageable (on some days!).  And then my son started laughing and interacting a bit more and it got even better.  Now I’m stuck between wanting him to sit up unassissted, hold his own bottle, etc… and missing my tiny, special, cuddlly newborn.  Hang in there and, as much as you can, enjoy every minute b/c it really does go by Way.  Too.  Fast.  (i know, so cliche).
