Loss of an 11 week old baby

Hi. Really dont know where to start. I lost my little boy on the 25th november and only got to bury him on friday last the 20th nearly a month later. Waiting for him to be released and noing he was on his own the hole time nearly killed me. How does anyone move past loosing a child that young or any age or does it get easier
