Have you tried the crib? My DS hated the bassinet and only liked the crib, it was the weirdest thing. Have you tried laying her a different way?

Try turning on the vacuum or hair dryer for a few minutes. Also, they make white noise machines that work well.

Does she like being swaddled? You could try swaddling her in one of your tshirts. I actually made a small square weighted blanket that helps with transitioning from mommy to bed. Its a square with rows of rice to help weigh it down. You can toss it in the microwave to warm as well.

E can get like that. He won't sleep anywhere that's not on top of me or in our bed for long. I have to make sure he's nice and warm when I put him down in his pnp or the swing.

We just started swaddling and it calms her down and helps her sleep longer. The crib doesn't work either. I'm going to look into the white noise machine.Does anyone know if the rock and play is ok to user? I know in 2010 it was recalled, but they redid them and are still for sale.

I don't have one, but I have heard many people say really great things about the rock & play sleepers.

The rock'n'plays are fine to use. . . If they were recalled in 2010, then what ever they were recalled for is most likely fixed - Otherwise they wouldn't be out on the shelves. You can also try putting a shirt that you wore all day, so it smells like you, near by her. My cousin heard that a full breast pad near baby works too. . . I know it sounds odd, but worth a shot maybe if you don't want her to sleep on your chest. . . Adalyn gets like this some days - Doesn't want to sleep anywhere but in my arms. I just roll with it - The house work can wait until the next day. And at night, I just let her sleep on my chest.

i have started to get alan to put a hot water bottle in Noah's cot while i snuggle him, when he's finally asleep we swap out the hwb for the baby - it seems to work as he get to stay warm and snuggly and doesn't notice he has been put down.

I'm going to recommend a pram stroller again, feed her and lay her down and then walk with her - she will go right back to sleep and you don't have to move her afterwards

Overtime it will help her get used to sleeping without being held in general.

I was going to say pram / stroller. Michaela is quite fussy about where she sleeps and it depends on her mood. At first we thought it was that she'd only sleep on our laps, but it's about reflux, gas and colic and not being able to sleep flat on her back when she has tummy ache or feels sick. Sometimes she settles off in the pram after just a few pushes back and forth, and sometimes a short walk is required then we leave her just outside the back door all wrapped up in the fresh air and watch her from a garden seat or from the dining table. Sometimes she needs to be almost sat up and falls asleep with her bouncer on vibrate then we transfer her to her crib. Our crib rocks and that sometimes helps her, too. We have also found that we need the TV / washer / etc on in the background for white noise, she doesn't settle nearly as well in utter silence.

Swaddling with warm blankets has always worked for my babies, especially if I warm the fittd bassinet sheet too.

What a brilliant idea, I wonder if this would work for putting Michaela down in her Moses basket.

I use a "sleep sheep" with Emily. It's a stuffed animal that's also a sound machine. I attach it to the outside of her crib or bassinet and she'll fall asleep almost anywhere I use it. She loves the whales or the ocean sounds.

I'm returning the rock and play. When she sleeps, her chin is to her chest. This can cause her to suffocate. I know its rare but I tried breathing like that abs it was hard. I'm not risking it. Onto ether other methods you ladies told me about

My daughter hates being flat and the rock and play works great for us, between that and co-sleeping we get to sleep. Hope it works out for you !
