  • My seven month old hasn't slept once in her crib! My husband and I keep saying we have to move her out of our room, but neither of us are ready yet apparently! :)

  • My two kids have always slept in their cribs and nap in them. You have to keep trying and try not to give him when they cry.

  • I just co-slept. I could never listen to a baby cry. I think it's cruel.

  • I let mine sleep where she is comfortable.

  • I don't let mine cry for very long, they have to learn to self sooth some time. A couple of minutes does not hurt them.

  • My NB is 9 weeks and sleeps in car seat. He likes to sleep reclined. I told his doc and he said " He will grow out of his car seat. He needs to be put in his crib awake so he knows how to fall asleep on his own and put him on his back, not his belly or side." He still sleeps in his car seat b/c that is where he is comfortable. He has slept w/ me too.
