    Default Having naps in sling

    My DD is 8 weeks old and has never been in her cot for day sleeps. Reason is we are often out and about with the toddler's things he has on and also because I really don't have the time, energy or patience to settle her in her cot for hours each day.

    So if we are out in the car, she will sleep in the car capsule/pram but if we are home I put her in the mandua.

    My question is, am I creating a bad habit here? She tends to sleep okay at night in her cot, goes about 6 hour blocks, but it does take a few goes to get her to sleep, and we put her in the cot asleep, around 10pm cos she won't settle any earlier.

    Has anyone else done this?

    Yes all ok. Both my girls have/had their day sleeps in the carrier/pram/car capsule. That way they actually get to go to and stay asleep!!!
