Any advice please, I’m desperate!!sad
My LO is 8 weeks now, my husband has just gone away to Norway for a couple weeks (not my choice, he’s gone with work) but ever since he’s been gone my baby won’t feed properly, isn’t napping at all, and refuses to be put down, every time I try he screams until he goes red.
I’ve tried a sling, tried swaddling, going for walks and just letting him cry for a couple minutes but nothing is working.
The health visitor has said it’s strange as she’s never seen anything like it, he’s not colicy he just does not want to be put down. I’m worried that he has noticed that my husband has gone and it’s affecting him badly, is there anything I can do to help him?

Do you have any of your h's laundry? The smell might comfort him?

What kind of sling are you using?

Is he cutting any teeth?

Has he by any chance just had his vaccinations?
