I have a 9 1/2 week old and she didn't like sleeping in her bassinet, located in mine and my husbands room, but she loves her swing so we have let her sleep in that since she was a week old. I am worried that by letting her sleep in her swing I am not allowing her spine and back muscles to grow properly (this is what I have heard from other parents) Is it too soon to worry about this? At what age should a baby be out of the swing at night and in a bassinet or crib?
Last night we tried the bassinet she would sleep in there for 3 hours at a time getting up several times, it was not fun for any of us. She normally sleeps 7 hours, eats and then sleeps for another 3-4 hours we have been very lucky with her!
So what i would like to know is will she get better at sleeping on flat surfaces? Does she really need to transition now? And how to transition easily from swing to flat surface sleeping area?View Thread
