Ive had had a fair few challenges with DS when it comes to sleeping during the day. We have started to get it under control. Unfortunately I need to transition him into his cot just after getting the upper hand! He's getting too long for his bassinet and starting to roll around. I don't feel comfortable leaving him in there.
i was hoping someone might have some tips on the easiest and smoothest transition for us all.
He he gets wrapped everytime he goes to bed. We also have a thicker blanket tucked under the mattress that we put over him. It seems to keep him still ( he likes to wiggle to keep himself awake)
Id id appreciate any tips

Oh also people's opinions on sleep positioners? DS likes to sleep on his side during the day (he would love it at night but I won't let him because I can't keep checking him like I can through the day) has anyone used one to help with side sleeping in the cot?

I used a sleep positioner to side sleep my babies. They were wrapped in the wrap me up swaddles then i tucked a blanket over them.
Once they started wriggling out of the sleep positioner i took it away

When did your babies start to wriggle out of them? Once DS is asleep at night he's asleep, so I'm not too worried about having one for his night time sleep. But he can take ages to get to sleep during the day!
I don't want to waste my money on something he may only use for a week because he hates it or he wriggles outta it. But i tried to put him in his cot today to sleep on his back he just thought it was to kick n play.

A cheap way to try it is to tightly roll up 2 towels and secure the rolls with tape.
Place under the fitted sheet.
I used the same positioner for all 3 of my kids for a couple of months each so it came in handy.
I used it between 4 & 7/8mths

Thanks! I'll give it a go
Ah ok, my LO is 3 months next week. Hopefully if it works I'll get quite good use out of it then

to transition would it be worthwhile getting a snuggle bed thing similar to the ones that you can use in bed to co-sleep? That way he still feels like he is in the bassinet but he has the safety of the cot.

I've never heard of a snuggle bed. What is it and where would I find one

Here, you can get them on ebay or other sites. A lot of baby stores might have them too. If this one isn't something you like there are a few little co-sleeper beds that might do the trick

Excellent. Thank you! I'll look into one and see how we go he loves being snug. The cot doesn't offer that, which he hates.
