  • I don't think any baby likes their crib....Has she been sleeping in it for a while? Has she just recently started waking up in it?

  • my oldest hated her crib. i got her a toddler bed at 8 months, she slept in it fine, just had a barrier up so she couldnt fall out of bed. my youngest loves hers though! she will play in there till she needs a diaper after her nap.

  • Has she been sleeping in her crib all night every night since day one? if you let her sleep with you, than that's the problem right there.

  • She was sleeping in a bassinet but she is to big and she sits up. I thought about buying another mattress but they all seem to be the same plastic cover and hard. I co sleep around 5 am because I just cant any more.

  • Would you want to sleep in it? We cosleep. I have a crib sidecarred for additional room but we breastfeed so my 10m baby sleeps in me armpit at chest level.

  • OK I got a better mattress and no luck its been a week of hardly no sleep. I am thinking about putting her back in the play-pin to sleep she seems way happier there.
