Smile Sleep troubles for mommy and baby

My daughter Teagan is 2.5 months old and is the most snugly little girl in the world! I absolutely love when she falls asleep on my chest and nestles herself into me all nice and cozy, but the problem I have is trying to put her down after she falls asleep on me! She wakes up during the transition from mom to crib. Also she will NOT fall asleep on her own without being held and rocked. I love our time,but I would also love to have some time to sleep without her on top of me. Has anyone else felt with this and have any tricks to get her to sleep a long nap all by herself?! I'd appreciate any ideas! Thanks so much!

Congratulations on your little girl!

My kiddos always liked being swaddled and that helped with the transitions because their little arms were tucked into the swaddle and they didn't "flail" when being put into bed. They were still snuggled in tightly so the transition was pretty smooth.

The other thing we did was put a heating pad on LOW on the bed while rocking/nursing at bedtime and then remove it just before putting Baby down to bed. Then the sheets were warm when Baby was placed on the bed. Our kiddos were always startled by cold sheets but once we started using a heating pad, it made that transition so much smoother.
 


Good luck to you and

that heating pad technique is a good idea!
@TeeMarie, I had this problem with my daughter as welk and the swaddling trick worked for her to stay asleep while putting her in her bed.
Also, love your daughters name

Thank you I'm going to try the heating pad tonight for sure! And the swaddling worked up until a month ago: ( she just struggles trying to unwrap herself and cries! Her soothie helps her to get to sleep as well so if I can keep it in her mouth and try warming her bed hopefully we will have a good night sleep very soon! And Thanks I fell in love with the name after many months and many lists of all our top choices, but as soon as I saw her little face I knew she was a Teagan!
