Sleep: Have him fall asleep in your arms and then set him in his crib.

Get ear plugs: You have one good chance to deliver a baby ; begin to train it to separate from your body. If you rock it to sleep or carry it everywhere, it decides that is the only way it can exist. Feed the kid as it wakes, do body maintenance, play until tired ; then put it in a crib when sleepy. Read or sing to it from nearby until asleep.Pick it up only to begin a new feeding cycle 2 hours later.
