Sleeping advice...

Ds will be 2 months on 2/14 and I am trying so hard to break the co-sleeping before it becomes an issue. Unfortunately he will only sleep in his bassinet for 20-30 mins tops. During the day he normally nap in his swing or bouncer and will sleep in both for at least two hours.. yet the longest nap I've gotten him to take in his crib was 20 mins long. Any advice on how to break the co-sleeping and get him into his bassinet or crib??

Sorry, I don't know. I am currently co-sleeping again with DS3 (5month old now). I co-slept with his big brother and transitioned then into toddler beds after they turned 1.

Are you swaddling him? Sometimes that helps.

Try swaddling and perhaps draping a shirt that has your scent near his bed.   We never did cosleeping at all so from day one dd was in the bassinet and then to a pack n play.

I've tried swaddling also but he hates it. He doesn't like his arms being held down since he sleeps in very awkward positions and he gets super hot and sweats while he's swaddled. I'll definitely try again though.. and the shirt thing as well.

I'm sorry, I don't really have advice.
