Transition from Bassinet to Crib

My baby is going to be a month old on Monday, and as of right now she sleeps in the same room as my husband and I in a bassinet. I was wondering what would be a good time to try to get her to sleep in her crib? Granted our room and the baby's room are attached rooms, I'm just worried I wouldn't be able to hear her when she wakes up wanting a bottle.

  • I moved my daughter out of the bassinet to her crib when she was about 4 mos. old. I never had a problem hearing her at night and her room is right next to ours. But I agree w/ previous posters about getting a baby monitor if you're worried you won't hear her. You can get really sensitive ones that pick up just about everything. We use a Sony brand that we love.

  • As soon as she is rolling over or pushing herself around it is time for the crib. You should be able to hear her if the rooms are attached, but if you are worried get a monitor.

  • she needs to move before she rolls over . and a monitor is the way to go to ease your feaqrs.

  • Move her to the crib when you want to. Buy a baby monitor if you're concerned you won't hear her.

    Mine were in their own crib from the beginning. I'm a big believer in making as few changes as possible...making life much easier!

  • I moved my daughter into her crib as soon as she started sleeping 6-8 hours at she was about 2 mo. old. I just figured I'd do it before she was old enough to realize what was happening.

    Get a baby monitor.
