Help! Baby outgrown basket and won't sleep in her crib
My Lo has now outgrown her Moses basket and we have tried, as of last night to put her in her crib. She hates it! Everytime I try to put her in she wakes up and screams. Her basket was very snug for her do I am wondering if she missed the coziness and warmth. The crib seems so open and uncomfy! When she does scream to taken out I usually lie her on my bed ontop of a fleecy blanket or dressing gown to settle and feed her then try to put her back in once she has dozed off. Last night was a total failure though. She normally only wakes once or twice for a quick feed, last night it was non stop!
Does anyone have any advice how to get their baby to take to the crib/ cot? Am I able to put a fleecy planket under her so she is more cozy and snug? Are bumpers allowed on the sides to help her feel more enclosed? Obviously safety is crucial so I don't want to do anything that puts her at risk. I just want her to like her bed again! The mattress really looks so hard and uncomfy I don't blame her!
We're going through the same thing! phoebe woke up 7 times crying, think the open space scared her so even tho shes rapidly outgrowing the basket we are currently putting her to sleep in it in the cot.
Also giving them something you/daddy has worn will comfort them. Or sleep with their blanket for a few nights to get your scent on it xx
give baby a few days to settle. we put a fleecy blanket under the sheet to make it more comfortable and eventually I put a light duvet under the sheet so now it's very soft but my lo is 9 months now so can easily move and lift herself up.
