In need of Advice

My son is almost 2 weeks old....I been pretty much giving him a bird bath because his cord didn't fall off yet but my son starts crying and he gets loud and louder I talk to him and try to comfort him but nothing works! My mom keeps saying u need to talk to him and it's aggravating me because nothing I do helps and she's always in my ear.....I get depressed idk what to do. Im first time mom there is a lot of things I don't know and willing to learn and try.
