    Fin didn't even realise he was in it the first time til he was awake as he was punch drunk from feeding and half asleep when I put him in. Is it in the same place as his Moses basket? Have u used the blanket etc from the Moses basket? Good luck Hun xxx

    yeah its in the same place as the moses basket and i will use the same blankets. I always put him down asleep so hoping he won't know the difference but when i put him in a while ago half asleep he sort of startled himself awake as his arms and feet had so much space! xx

    i found Issac slept really well in his cot but he wears a sleeping bag and no blankets over him.

    I used to roll a blanket up and put it above his head and slot it inbetween the gaps so it wouldnt move in his rocking crib and ive done the same in his cot but i have him lie at the top and not feet to foot but only because he doesnt have any sheets over him.

    Good luck

    Good luck :good: I haven't really got any tips to offer, l/o was fab at going in his cot. New sheets, different room, different cot! No problem for him at all. He was getting annoyed with the basket he was in and I think he likes the space. He went in it 10 mins ago and is sound asleep already. My plan was to put the basket in the cot if he hadn't taken to it well x

    Morning ladies. Well we have success :yay: we put Will in his cot at 10:15pm and he slept through to 6am :yay: normally he will go through til 7am but one hour earlier isn't bad considering! Just need to work out how to put him down while awake next.....! Xx

    I don't know! It might be because there is a longer journey from feed to cot iykwim. We might need to look into getting a chair or something! We just don't have room!
