    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.

    Congratulations on your baby girl!

    The trials and tribulations of changing sleep patterns can make everyone overtired and frustrated!

    To connect with more moms of tiny little ones, also post your question on our Baby's First Year Community.

    Here is a great resource to check out (Caution: Turn volume down if baby is sleeping near you, there is sound on this link.)

    Have you tried to put her bassinet in her room?

    Hoping sound sleep for all very soon,
