Can Babies Sleep in This?

I feel like the answer is yes, but I'd like to hear what you have to say. I just got the Graco Sweetpeace Newborn Soother. Can I actually let my baby sleep in this thing? If he loves it, do I even need to try to put him in his bassinet/crib? He would be slightly elevated in the soother; I don't know if that's acceptable. Thoughts?

  • My doctor has always said crib is the safest on their back. Swings are okay only for napping during the day while you are awake to keep an eye on them.

  • How old is baby? If he is big enough to wiggle and fall over to the side, then, not unless you can watch him.

  • I would only do it if I was right there watching. I think the products have warning labels stating not to have them sleep in them.
