co-sleeping/problems with daytime naps


I didnt plan on having liam in bed with me but he wouldnt sleep in his moses basket after he had his 2 month jabs and hes slept in my bed ever since and i love it but the problem im having is he refuses to sleep anywhere but on me or dad (or anyone else!) for his daytime naps he wont sleep in his moses or crib he will lay there for 2 minutes then wake up screaming, ive tried getting him to sleep in his buggy as he sleeps well in there when we are out but the same thing happens when i come inside, im proberbly being to soft on him but i hate hearing him cry but we cant carry on like this! Any much needed advice would be lovely

How does he lie whilst in bed with you? Is he laid flat or in your arms?

In my arms he will lay on his own sometimes but not for very long, the only way to get him to sleep is to have him on my chest as he likes to be on his front

ah so at night he sleeps on your chest also? Have you tried laying him on his front in your bed but NOT on you? At his age he is big enough to roll/turn his head so there is a much less risk with front sleeping.

My LO is the same, but that's how i want it for now. He goes to bed at night and self settles on his own (in a co-sleeper) but he will only sleep on me in the daytime. I'm making the most of it because he is such a big baby he wont be on me for long. He can entertain himself on his own so he isn't clingy and i can get on with my jobs when he is playing and chill n surf when he is asleep. He sleeps in the pram, carrier and car seat when i'm out, he just loves his mummy time.

yeah he does whilst he has his bottle then when he gets tired he tries to roll off me so i lay him beside me, i have thought of doing that so will try that this afternoon think he feels more snug on his front!
