Are you ever lying in bed, just about to fall asleep when you hear a sound? Your heart stops and you lie there quietly...listening. Was it my imagination? Did I really hear something? Then you hear it again. And you try to stay so quiet, you don't dare make a sound, for fear of calling attention to yourself. Then you realize you have to go to the bathroom but there's no way you can get up now. And of course your throat starts to tickle and you want to cough so badly but you can't risk making a sound.
That's what it's like having a 2 month old sleep in a bassinet a foot away from your bed.
