Hi @Obee6239 and welcome to our online community!
I'm sorry to hear the trouble you have been having trying to get your newborn to sleep while your partner is away, that sounds really stressful and exhausting. It sounds like a lot to be dealing with right now! Do you mind me asking if there have been any other changes to your routine, other than your partner leaving for work?
While you are waiting for responses from other community members, I wanted to share a couple of articles that I have found on Newborns and sleeping as well as Responsive Settling. I wonder if maybe they might be able to give you an idea of other things you could try.
I was also wondering what supports you have around you right now. Is there someone that you would feel comfortable talking to about this? If you would like to talk to someone, we suggest reaching out to a helpline like Parentline who can support you and your family in finding a solution that works for you.
We're all here for you.
