In brief: Get ear plugs

You have one good chance to deliver a baby & begin to acquaint it with functioning 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 while waking, do body maintenance, play until tired & then put it in a crib to sleep. Pick it up only to begin a new feeding cycle 2 hours later. You can teach it to rest alone.
