my dd is 11 days old and sleeps in a bassinet right by my bed. when she wakes during the night ill change her diaper if she needs it and feed her,but she'll cry if i try to lay her back in her bed b4 shes sound asleep so i let her lay with my for a few min till i can move her. but sometimes i fall back asleep and wake up like 30-45 mins later and move her.does anyone else ever have this happen?
i dont want her sleeping in bed with us,not bc its a bad habit,but bc im sooo afraid something will happen. i even feel bad when i lay her back in her bed bc she sleeps so well curled up next to me and i love it,but i dont want anything to happen to her

My son was the same way when he was a newborn. What I did to get him to sleep on his own was at first I'd wait until he was good and asleep before I put him in his bassinet, then I went to waiting until he was asleep but not very deeply, then to just barely asleep, until finally I was putting him down while he was awake right after burping him. It was a fairly tedious process, but it has been well worth it; he's 16 months old now, and all I have to do is put him in his crib (wide awake) and he'll go to sleep with no problems whatsoever. Good luck.
