    Hi-I feel your pain we tried this for the first time last night as LO is too big for his Moses basket-his head right up at the top!! He has also hada few daytime naps in it and been ok. Anyway he wouldn't settle. In the end was in our bed as wouldn't settle in the Moses basket either. He normally sleeps 10-8 with a bottle between 1 and 2 and another about 5. We were going to move the cot bed into our room but will need to dismantle it to move it and don't have the tool to do it so who knows what will happen tonight. Feels like a step backwards!

    Have you tried her in your room in the cot first or are you just going straight to the cot from a basket??
    If she's going in all night it's a bit different to daytime as there's no noise or lights plus it's bigger, if you try her in your room first in the cot then transfer it to her room after a couple of days she may be used to the open-ness (sp) a little more. I think of doing it in stages, that's what we did with our LO.
    Hope it goes well for you x x x

    We've started putting Ryan down in his own room when he goes to bed at 7/8pm then he comes into our room in the moses basket once he wakes up around 11pm for his first night feed, more for my convenience than anything else as there isn't room in the nursery for a comfy chair for me to feed him in at night!

    I started putting him in his room for daytime naps and gradually shut the blackout blinds during the day so that he got used to it being dark. If you don't have a blackout blind you can buy travel ones that stick to any window with suckers, much cheaper and easier than buying a proper one.
