DD is almost 8 weeks old-she falls asleep in moses basket ok, and sleeps from about 10pm-2am for next feed, but then she doesnt like being put down back in her basket-she might doze for 10 mins in there but then what seems like trapped wind wakes her up and distresses her so she cries til its come out
The last couple of nights I've taken her in bed with us and she has slept on my chest - sleeping on her tummy but head to one side, so I can doze too
Is this okay or is she in any danger from sleeping that way? and any other tips for getting her back to sleep in her basket if thats a better thing to do, or will she grow out of it?
DD used to do this too - I used to love it and hate it in equal measure. Love it because there is nothing better than the feeling of that warm baby snoozing away on your chest BUT hated it coz after a while it feels v heavy and you -just-can't-move-because-she-will-wake-up...
I remember asking my GP about it and she said "if she is still doing it at 18 come and tell me, because then you will have a problem!"
I think it went on for a little while - a couple of weeks perhaps. But then she found her thumb and that seemed to settle her. (Which was a relief then, but 8 years later she is looking at some serious orthodontic work.)
(And she sleeps in her own bed now!! But she still loves cuddles)
