My daughter is 2 months old. And she sleeps with me i mean right next to me. I wait a little bit and put her down in her crib or pack n play or car seat or bouncer, or boppy pillow(during the day when i can watch her) but as soon as i walk away she will wake up, or when i put her down she will squirm around and wake up and wont go back to sleep. How can i get her to sleep anywhere else but with me. I hate to see her cry cause she doesnt cry often, i know i should let her cry for a little bit. Any advice how to get her to stay asleep in her pack n play or crib? She does have a sleep positioner.Answer Question
It sounds like she likes being snug. I used to put my DD down while she was swaddled nice and snug in her blanket. I always rocked her to sleep as well. I didn't break away from that until she was about 6 months of age.

No you shouldn't let her cry. It's normal for human babies to sleep with their mommas and cry when they wake and find themselves alone. Human mothers and babies have always slept together and still do in most of the world. It's hardwired in the human brain for survival. What you want and what your baby needs may be 2 different things.
