My son who is now 54 years old was very difficult to get to sleep at night. The health visitor advised us to put him in his cot and to sit in the room but never have eye contact and to ignore his crying, which would eventually get him to sleep. It was torture to do and often my husband would fall asleep before the baby.
No eye contact is not new as the baby gets stimulated and thinks it is a game. My daughter in law (his wife) always had our DGD in her arms until she had dropped off, we thought that bonkers too but it worked for them and they are still incredibly attached.
