Does anyone have any suggestions on how to transition from rock and play to a crib at night? She takes naps her crib just looking to move her into her crib at night since her reflux haa subsided

You could always try to raise one side of the crib slightly so she's still angled a bit while sleeping. Oryou could try the pnp first to see how well she does then transition her to the crib.

I'm not much help as Tessa rarely sleeps in her crib anymore ... we mainly bed share since she sleeps so much better that way

I don't really have any specific advice--we've never used a rock and play. But, I guess you could just try putting her in the crib and see how it goes. If she's already napping in it, hopefully it would be a smooth transition. When we transitioned Grace to the crib it went pretty well. At first I'd rock/nurse her to sleep and then put her in the crib. Eventually she would not want to nurse to sleep--I'd lay her down sleepy. Sometimes she'd go right to sleep, and other times it took longer. I'd stay with her until she went to sleep--rubbing her back/tummy, singing to her, etc.

I would bedshare but I just can't for one our bed is just not big enough, two Baer rolls a lot ... she is just getting too big for her rock and play and I want to try to have her sleep in her crib as it's bigger and she can move around i have to get a fan lol she has become accustom to our fan noise (she is one of those babies that needs noise to help her sleep) in our room so I will put one on her windowsill at night

I'd say if she's used to napping in the crib, she might do just fine at night. You could try a white noise machine instead of a real fan. I don't have/need one, but lots of people love them.

We bought a stuffed giraffe sound machine for Katie. I had never used it for any of my others, but she does super well with it. She knows that it's' nap or bed time when we turn it on.

Just wondering if you've tried it yet at night, and if so, how did it go?

Yes I did it one night she did great! .. me not so much but only because since being in here she has to have a fan because of the noise... we have a noise machine but it isn't the same it's more of a humm and the noise machine is a soother it tends to wake her up after some time ... so we are getting another fan just for her! plus we had to have her door knob fixed because our cat likes to go into each room at night and meow a few times which wakes her lol but it was really good though I think having her sleep in there for naps is what made it that much easier, honestly I think she WANTS to be there because she wants to wiggle and move and sprawl out instead of being cooped in that half reclined seat.hopefully we can get a fan this week!
