View Full Version : HELP getting 2 month into his crib!

My son has been sleeping with my husband and I since we brought him home from the hospital and I am now tired of it! I was us to have our bed back but I can't seem to get my son out! Everytime I put him in his own bed, the minute I put him in there he wakes up and starts screaming! I tried to leave him in there a little while but all he did was cry. I feel so frustrated with myself for starting such a bad habit! Does anyone have any ideas? Please help!

I had the same problem. So what we did was let him fall a sleep in our arms at first with his warm blanket so that when we put him down in his crib he stayed warm. Then we tried the Sassy Inc. Sassy Crib Wedge and Positioner that we found at Target. It worked wonders for us!! It made our son think that he was still being held. He grow out of it in few months but it really did the trick for him to get use to sleeping in the crib, and not with us. (I think it is only like $20 and was worth the money)

yep- not sure if the sassy thing is the same thing we used but mine is a memory foam wedge ( also helps with acid reflex ). We get our daughter asleep with a bottle and a warm blanket and just put her on the wedge in the crib. Just a little tid bit, i was reading an article the other day that said the first 15 mins to half and hour after they fall asleep is their heaviest sleep. The wedge has sides and it does the trick. I guess it does feel like wee are still holding her. She did out grow it but I pulled it out again when she had the flu a couple of weeks ago. I had three nights on the couch holding her sitting up- im thinking that the drainage was to much when she laid flat. The wedge helped her and I had a full nights sleep. AWESOME! I also got mine at target. Another great use I found for it was its great for travel since her pack and play isnt very cushy she lays on the wedge and it feels the same as home. GOOD LUCK!

I agree with the wedge things. This worked for my son, too. My youngest daughter had to be swaddled. We wrapped her nice and tight and she was good. I know it's hard to hear, but sometimes it's okay to let them cry a bit. You could try it for 5 minutes, check on him,then 10 minutes. Now, I know some babies will just not stop (my oldest daughter!). But, some will cry themselves to sleep, and the crying will get less and less as the days progress. It may be worth a try. But, with my oldest daughter, we tried everything! We had to run the vacuum, I put her in her carseat to sleep sometimes. Good Luck!
