    Default When did yours grow out of it?

    My 11w old DD will only sleep during the day if she is being held/carried.
    I have no issue with this as she needs to have daytime sleeps.
    DH is concerned she will become 'used to it' and will never sleep any other way.
    I disagree and believe she will grow out of it when she is good and ready.
    She puts herself to sleep at night no issues it's just a daytime thing.
    Anyone have the same thing with their LO's and did they grow out of it or did you have to do it forever as they got used to it?
    TIA

    both kids outgrew it by 6mths when they went to 2 solid sleeps a day. till then they slept in the carrier, pram or car capsule. I would often park the pram in the lounge if necessary and move it as I did chores. it was fairly easy to resettle my kids this way.

    Unfortunately we live in a very narrow three story terrace so the pram is not an option but she actually won't sleep that anyway if I'm out and about. It's the carrier or nothing. We even have a electric swing for her and that doesn't cut the mustard. I think she needs the closeness.
    Makes it a bit hard to do all the chores but you've gotta do what you've gotta do right?
    It's not like I'm gonna let her cry herself to sleep in her basinet so I can clean the house.

    i agree with you. honestly I've been there... and this time does end. You might need to make a priority list up of what HAS to be done vs what is OPTIONAL. Farm out some stuff to partners, family etc. I found groceries hard with a carrier as i couldn't bend down to empty the trolley or pop things in easily. so I did online shopping more or send DH.

    Bubbles - I hear you. My DD started out sleeping great in the day but that disappeared and now she will only nap on me. I'm now slowly trying to get her back in her cot, with limited success, but her late afternoon nap is usually still on me. I'd rather she sleep than be grumpy. She's 19 weeks today.

    Bubbles, we are repeating comments from your previous thread, but seriously, stuff the cooking and cleaning, you have a newborn. Either someone else helps you or it doesn't get done, and that's fine! That's what takeaway's for.

    The new pic of DD on your avatar is lovely!

    If only it were that easy

    But I am honestly keen to see if it's something she will out grow, or if I'll be slinging her around forever.

    Of course she'll outgrow it! She won't want you holding her forever. But it's a matter of when, that's all.

    Well I didn't actually think I'd still be carrying her for a sleep at 18yrs but I am wondering if there is a general age that they no longer need it.
