Baby Won't Sleep in Crib
Why won't my 5 week old sleep in his crib? He wakes up whenever I put him down.
Baby Help Line: Newborn Baby Refuses Crib Sleeping
The reason your baby refuses to sleep in his crib is basically because he is 5 weeks old... ;-)
It is very common for newborn babies to not want to be anywhere but close to mom, and particularly not in a wide, scary (in their minds) crib!
There are things you can do to make the crib a more attractive place for your newborn.
You'll find tips on how to help your baby accept the crib here.
But, being so young, your son is still adapting to life outside the womb. For daytime, get yourself a baby sling, so you can have him sleeping close to you and still have your hands free. For night time, try the above crib sleeping tips, but you can also consider
co-sleeping in a safe way.
I hope this gives you some ideas.
Good luck and congratulations on your son!
