  • Many moms say that their babies will only sleep in their carseat or their swing. I think the bottom line is . . . you have to do what works. Be glad that he'll sleep in his seat . . . mine would only sleep in my arms for the first 3 months.

  • You are just fine! I just got my baby to sleep in her crib and she's 5 mos old! My last three babies refused to sleep anywhere else and I gave in because I needed sleep. Hey at least you have a place where baby is content. Some babies need constant shifting. My last baby Hated the bassinet. We tried so many different ways and went back to the carseat!

  • Ok anon, why do you say no? When all my son's doc. told us to let him sleep in his carseat. He was the same age, he got sick, congested, and the doc said to let him sleep in his car seat and that moste babies sleep there better and that its even safer. So I'd say yes. Let your angel sleep in the car seat. I will give you my son's doctor's number so you can ask her if you want.

  • umm no i mean no its not like dangerous or anything but that is a horrible habit to start now. he is still brand new and if you put him in his bed now he will get used to this is where i sleep. the car seat is just comforting because he can curl up why not try swaddling him before you put him in his bed that might help his still feel close, cozy and warm
