Ever since my DD was born I haven't put her in her yet I'm to scared so far she has been sleeping with me or in her bassinet and she is 3months old.... So should I try the crib now? or is there another way I can do it?

You can keep her sleeping with you, if you want. My son slept with me until he was 5. Or, you can try her in the crib, if you want.

Of course it is fine! Just be safe about it, and there is no reason she shouldn't, and a lot of reasons she should, sleep in bed with you. It actually helps babies regulate their breathing to bed share, so it's a precaution against SIDs, as long as, again, you do it safely.

I wouldn't move her from your room until she is at least 1. Ds1 was 20 months before we even attempted his own room, 2 years before we made it routine, and now at 2 1/2, he sleeps most nights in his room (but knows he can always come to ours).
Ds2 (6 weeks) is in my bed and will be for a long time.
As JoJo said, it's actually safer to at least co sleep (in the same room), and even better to SAFELY bed share.

You do what works for you.

Honestly, I barely sleep when I have a child in my bed so a crib/cradle always worked best for me.

If you want to transition her to a crib then start with naps in the crib for now.

I'm starting slow with putting her in the cribs so for right now I am only putting her in the crib just for naps

i bed share if she gets up at night since i dont like her just laying in bed without me. she sleeps in her rock n play till she wakes up at 2/3 a.m. then in bed with me. she also naps in her rock n play. she will bed share till 1 or older. but do whats you think is best for your baby. every baby is different but the moms knows what works for their own baby.
