Sleeping on Own, 3 Months Old
MelissaGilbert posted:
I have a 3 month old baby girl who I am trying to transition to her crib. She is breastfed and often falls asleep on me. We started her out in a small bassinet by our bed. When I try to put her in her crib, she will only sleep for about 10 minutes before waking. I have used all the same techniques and accessories as with the bassinet. This process is making our whole family miserable. I would appreciate any suggestions to ease this transition.
