First let me say that I'm sorry that your SO isn't being supportive. He needs to stop being negative and start being encouraging for both of you. Not having a supportive partner must make it 10 times harder.

It sounds like your little one is pretty normal. Anna will be 7 weeks old on friday and she's hardly making any sounds. She won't go to sleep without being fed, swaddled, and cuddled/patted/rocked. And she doesn't normally want to spend time awake not being held. She'll tolerate her bouncy seat for about 15 minutes and only if I'm bouncing it with my foot and even then sometimes she won't. I know it's really frustrating, but there will come a time when our babies are not so needy. Until then, I keep telling myself to enjoy the cuddles and the alone time with her because every mother I know tells me I'm going to miss it.

So hang in there, and maybe talk to your SO about his negativity. He needs to knock that crap off. It's not good for anyone, especially the baby.
