I have a 3 week old and I am trying to get her to sleep in her bassinet. How long do I let her cry?? I put her in her bassinet last night and she cried for an hour straight. It was breaking my heart but I don't know what else to do. I finally broke down and put her in the bed with us. Is an hour too long? It just seemed like she was not giving up. Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks to all of you who gave your advice in a nonjudgmental way. I understand some of you mammas are very passionate about your opinions but please know that anything I do with my baby is trial and error, it certainly is not to hurt my baby. I don't have 10 kids. I'm certainly no expert mom that's why I made this post, I NEEDED advice. I have no problem with her sleeping with me for months I just want to make sure I am doing the right thing. I'm sure you all know that many different people will give you very different advice. For instance, my SO's mother said she put both her kids in their crib within the first week they were born! Now, would I do that??? NO! But both her children are fine. She doesn't feel babies should be in your bed. For those of you with harsh words for me, please think and maybe put yourself in someone else's shoes for a second before you put your opinion out there. As far as my baby, I put her back in the bed with me last night and all went well.
