ds seems quite happy in the amby sometimes, will go down after first night feed. However then a bit later on he'll fuss and take a couple of tries. Then for the last feed (5-7am ish) he won't go back in so I bring him to bed and he sleeps well.
I am assuming this is normal and not amby related, would it happen in a "normal" cot?
Also he gets hiccups a lot when I put him in it.
In general any good tips for the amby? How did your newborns react to it (ds 7 days old).
Hi theprecious, congratulations on your new arrival! I used the amby from birth for dd (she is 7 mo now) and as far as I remember, she just wanted to be cuddled for the first few weeks and didn't settle very well. Just go with the flow for a while! But she started sleeping through the night in it from 6 weeks old, and dh was particularly good at bouncing her to sleep in it when she was unsettled and I'd had enough. I think a lot of babies are restless in the evenings, they want to feed a lot and "stock up" for the night.
I think the hiccups is normal for newborns, something to do with their diaphragms being immature. It goes away as they grow.
I kept the amby right next to our bed so when dd stirred I could put an arm out and bounce it. As she got heavier, her own movements would make it bounce when she stirred.
