A couple of friends have suggested this to me when I've talked about trying to get her to sleep in her crib. It seems like a lot of weight to put in one though... Has anyone else done this? I'd never even heard of it but after a second person mentioned it to me I thought I'd ask on here! Have any of you climbed into a crib with your LO to help get them to sleep? Is it safe?
Id say it would hold, but I cant imagine it would be very comfy! Why not just try laying baby in the cot and holding their hand? (this is what I did when I wanted Paige to fall asleep without being held) and it worked.
It would be quite funny to see someone in the crib with their baby though... lol!
I think it'd potentially damage the mattress - the fsids guidelines against second hand mattresses are because of indentations in the mattress more than hygiene.
Also, given how awkward climbing in would be, once baby is asleep how would you manage to climb out without waking baby again anyway? Given it'd probably be legs and arms all over the place lol! You couldn't sleep in there yourself - if you wanted to do that you'd be better off researching co-sleeping (in a normal bed!)
Isobel used to need to be cuddled to sleep but when we moved to self settling I used to lean over her at first and put my hands on her till she fell asleep.
