Default Getting baby to sleep in crib

My son will not sleep in his crib. He only wants to sleep in his bouncer or swing. I try getting him to sleep then putting him in his crib but he instantly wakes up. Any advice ladys??

Has your peditrician checked for reflux? He may like slepping at an angle better due to something like reflux. You can try placing a pillow under one end of the crib mattress to prop it up and then the baby can still sleep at an angle.

Both of our babies slept in their bassinets in our room from the get-go and when they were about 2-3 months old, I started putting them in the crib for naps so when it was time for then to leave our room and into their own, they were already used to it. However, my son though was the same way about waking up as soon as you put him down; he'd prefer sleeping on someone! We had to be super-slow, and gentle when placing him down. Then I would keep my hands around him, then on him, for a minute or two while I slowly rose up. Then I would very carefully remove my hand and back away slowly, and quietly. It was like a (really quiet) Olympic sport, lol!

Almost everyone I know has gone through some sort of sleep issue with their babes at some point- they will grow out it and move onto the next phase! My son has recently started having trouble being put down again and we have to let him cry it out; it only lasts about a minute or less most nights. When he first started doing it, it was like 10 minutes, but every night it got less and less. You have to really watch the clock though and not just listen to the crying, b/c 2 minutes can seem like an hour when they are screaming/crying! Now somenights he barely fusses and others he will cry for 2-4 minutes; I think depends how are tired he is. (or over-tired)

You could try putting a pillow under his crib sheet so he wouldnt be on the pillow but would still be propped up
