Get that baby in the crib!!!

Posted by   + Show Post
Hello,

I cannot get this baby to sleep in his crib. My little boy is 11 weeks and refuses the crib. In the beginning he would sleep in the pack n play but now it's the swing or our bed. Tips please anyone!!!!

Quoting MamaPeanut:

Ive never co-slept, I don't take the risk.
I hope you'll get it figured out. 🏨⛪


Me too!! I would rather be sleepy from getting out of bed than to co-sleep and suffocate my child.

My kids slept in every item I bought them. For weeks each, or longer. Swing, bouncer, moby wrap, bassinet and pack n play, then crib. Even our bed. Little phases. What's the big deal? Let the little guy sleep where he can. Rested baby = happy baby; happy baby = happy mama.

Try swaddling with one of your shirts so the baby can smell you all night.

Ive never rolled or ever even moved in my sleep.  Cosleeping works for me and my son. i believe in attachment parenting. But its not for everyone.

Ive used a a shirt, my baby hates being swaddled so i put it in the crib ive done a rice sock thats warm to provide heat.  Ive tried alot and he wasn't having it.  So We sleep together and we both get better sleep and are way happier. It works =]

I co sleep. If done right it's best for baby. It's not for every mom but it sure makes things easier and they're only little for so long. At 11 weeks he's only so big, he's used to being in the womb where it's warm, loud, and as close to mom as you can get. Being in a big cold crib without mom is just not what he's used to. You'll have to help him go without the comfort of mom. I'm not sure how you do that at 11 weeks though.

I had a bassinet like that too. It was Winnie the Pooh. My son would love to watch that mobile and listen to the music. He would just lay there and stare. lol


Quoting michellej428:

Ds slept in a bassinet right next to our bed on my side from day one. Didn't move him in the crib until he was too big for the bassinet. Give it a try! Rock baby to sleep then place in the bassinet. We had one that vibrated, played music and has a mobile. He was right next to me so if he started to fuss I would put on the vibrate, the music and put my hand on his belly, rubbing it till he felt safe and fell back asleep. All while still half asleep and laying in bed lol it was also a very easy transition to the crib. It's been a long time since I had a new born but hope this helps maybe even just a little?! Good luck!!

I didn't get ds to sleep in the crib until he was 6 months old and crawling and I was scared he would crawl out of my bed. Good luck.
