    Default Bassinet to cot transition

    DD (9weeks) is almost too big for her bassinet so moving into cot is the next step. The bassinet is in the cot in her room so she's used to being in her own room. I've tried her in an Ergo wrap to start the transition to a sleeping bag, but she doesn't like it. So i'm thinking that i'll keep wrapping her and tuck a cot sheet over her. What things have people had success with in transitioning from bassinet to cot? And what bedding/wraps/bags do you use? TIA

    I started using grobags on DS while he was still in the bassinet with a sheet (it was summertime) wrapped over him and tucked into the bassinet mattress. Then when I transitioned him to the cot full-time I used a sleep positioner with him in a grobag so he still had that snug feeling.

    I just wrapped mine up, put a cot sheet over them so they were nice and firm. I like the idea of the sleep positioner though to keep them snug. Once they started to wriggle out of the wrap, I put them in a Love Me wrap.
