How do I get my newborn to sleep in her crib or bassinet as opposed to my or daddy's arms?

She is three weeks old and we cannot get her to sleep anywhere but in our arms.

Ideas?

  • get a carrier that goes over you so she can feel like your holding her and hear your heart beat. its great cause both hands r free. try a pacifier.
