Just what the title says... the pram used to be my one surefire way to make my baby fall asleep but this week she will just start crying in it! I know she is crying from being completely overtired, she will fall asleep immediately once I put her in the sling. Anyone else had this? I'm sure it's just another phase but I feel like we're losing nap options...

A dummy may make it easier for her to settle independently. It allows for comfort sucking. Also, if it's a flat pram, then swaddling may help her nap better independently.

Thanks @FATEdestiny! We use a dummy, but she gets so hysterical she just spits it out. Will try the swaddle, although it's been so warm I haven't wanted to use one during the day if we are out and about. x

My DD did this - pram was the only way I could get her to nap and when she started screaming in it I was so upset! I lifted the head of the pram slightly so it wasn’t completely flat and it worked a treat. smile

@Vicky1989x Oh I will try that, thanks! x
