How old was your baby when you moved him/her to a crib

My daughter is 2mos old right now and is sleeping 4hr stretches at a time before feedings, in our bedroom. When is a good time to move her to her room and into a crib? When did you move yours?

  • My first daughter was in her crib from day one. I moved my twins to their cribs at 3 1/2 months, and it was a very easy transition. I've heard that the transition is easier if you do it before 5 or 6 months.

  • All 5 of mine slept in their crib in their own rooms from the first night we were home from the hospital.

  • Every mother has their own method, mine slept in his crib in his own room from the first day, But, I prefered not to co-sleep.
    I'm guessing since your daughter is 2 months, it's not too earlier to start that transition.
    good luck to you!
