    Default moving from bassinet in our room into a cot in her room

    my 5 month old Dd is growing out of her bassinet and I need tips or ideas on how to get her sleeping in her cot without too many tears (if that's even possible)

    at the moment she day sleeps on me, if I put her down she won't sleep longer than 10 minutes, so starting day sleeps in there isn't an option at the moment, I'm also not a fan of cio or cc

    edit: she is a brilliant night sleeper at the moment

    Default Re: moving from bassinet in our room into a cot in her room

    With DS we just gradually put him in his cot when he fell asleep for day naps so that he got used to waking up in there.
    Even if he only slept for 10 minutes after being put down. Didn't take top long before we were putting him in there for sleeps

    We just put him down in there one night and he slept brilliantly! Much better than he ever did in the bassinet

    Do you have a portacot? We were away for a month and DD slept in the portacot in our room (she was close enough to us but was getting used to the idea of sleeping in a larger area). When we got home we went straight into her cot in her own room without any issues. Maybe you could do something similar?

    Is she rolling yet? We put the mattress from our basinette in the cot, the transfer went smoothly

    Default moving from bassinet in our room into a cot in her room

    With ds2 we gradually did it like others putting for day sleeps and then graduated to night sleeps but I did also move the mattress from the bassinet into the cot just so he got used to it! It did take a couple of days to get used to it but after that he slept much better in his cot then in the bassinet!

    Default moving from bassinet in our room into a cot in her room

    I put both my DS's into the cot in their own room without any hassles. I just put the bassinet inside the cot for about a week, starting with day sleeps (that might not work for you though) and then bring it back into our room at night. After that went ok I tried night sleeps as well for about another week and then just put them into the cot. No dramas with either one and they are both happy cot sleepers! Good luck

    Default moving from bassinet in our room into a cot in her room

    For dd1 we did the bassinet in cot thingy for a week.

    For dd2 we just popped her in the cot at 8wks (she got too big for Moses basket) and we had only a couple of rough nights then it was fine.

    Just try it. You may be surprised.

    thank you ladies! some very helpful hints and tips there

    we had her in a port-a-cot whilst we were os and she was fine in them, she had no trouble sleeping in them at all so hopefully she does well in her cot.

    she is rolling, from back to belly, but not the other way yet, and only on her right side.

    I might try her in her cot on the weekend so Dh can get up as well if things don't go so well fingers crossed she does as well in her cot as she did in the cots overseas
