Nope. Those first about 6 months ( depending on the baby) the baby should be as comfortable as possible. Be it held by you, rocked, or in their own crib. Nothing you do right then can really effect how they will sleep later because they need to be comforted and cuddled then. They don't understand anything else. My son slept in his swing the first month or so. He was premature and had problems keeping his food down. I was always scared he would choke. Plus we had one of the starlight swings.. so he would watch the pretty lights above him while he went to sleep. He went just fine into his crib after that.
