Am I going crazy?

My son is only 7weeks old, and I am already wanting to cry. In the past three days I have had only a total of 7hours of sleep. Not 7hours each day, 7 hours total in three days. I am so exhausted. My son doesn't want to sleep in his crib, he doesn't co-sleep, he will fall asleep in his swing, then I transfer him into his crib he would scream. he stopped crying when I placed him on my chest, then I nursed him and he fell asleep. So I would put him in his crib, a few minutes later he would cry and cry. I wait at least 2mins to see if he just falls asleep, but nope. I am so emotionally exhausted. I am a single mom. It is so hard to do this alone. I don't get a moment to just be alone. My body wants to give up, but my mind and heart obviously don't. this is my son , I love him. I know he is just a baby, but idk what I am doing wrong. I ask myself why god let me be a mom, why he chose me? Did he really think I would be a good mom, or is this a test. IDK . I love my son so much that id give my life for him, I am a single mom. I didn't ask to be a single mom. His father left me when I found out I was pregnant and said Carter wasn't his. And he still hasn't seen Carter or spoken to me. I am stressed out to the max. I hate when people say sleep when he sleeps. NO, how can I get anything done ????? I am so frustrated and tired. And to add to it, I am sick with a cold. Sinus headache, sore throat, stuffy nose. I cant seem to catch a break. Am I going crazy ? what is wrong with me?

    Oh you poor thing! I feel you...my son NEVER slept. I honestly thought a few times that I was going crazy. The only thing that finally worked for him was to swaddle him tightly and then lay him down before he fell asleep to teach him how to fall asleep on his own. It didn't happen in one day it took some time but it was SO worth it. The first night I swaddled him he slept for 4 hours straight. I woke up in a panic because he had never done that before and he was almost 3 months old.
    Or as long as he is secure in his swing let him sleep in it. At least for a nap. Just put the swing close to you so you feel more secure about it. I know a few moms who just let their kids sleep in them.

    I strap him in the swing and turn it on. it shuts off after 30mins. Its in my room . he hates to be swaddled, every time I swaddled him , he would kick and scream till I took it off of him.

      And it is no reflection of your mothering skills...some kids just don't sleep like others. With my son it was like a puzzle that we had to figure out.

        If you lived closer i'd babysit for you so you could take a nap and catch up on housework or whatever, it's rough doing it all on your own. In the morning after we get done playing and its nap time I do quiet chores and when she's up I do the loud stuff but it's hard when you gotta stop every 5 minutes because baby is fussy. Just keep trying. I hope your cold clears up soon too.

          Hug momma. You can do this. Try taking dairy out of your diet. He could have gas issues. Let him sleep in the swing. If he falls asleep there, let him sleep there. You need your sleep.

            Awe I wish you were closer I'd babysit too! I'm sorry he's not sleeping, like everyone else said go ahead and le him sleep in his swing just keep it close so you feel better about it. Nap when he naps and don't worry about the house being perfectly clean or laundry getting done right now, it can wait til you guys are up. Good luck! Hope you rest soon. Hugs.
