    Is 5 weeks old too early to put H down in his cot of a night. I want to try and establish a bedtime routine. His cot is in our room. We have monitors and he'll only be in there for about 2 hrs, at the most, before I and my OH go to bed.

    We did the same thing from 3 weeks. Like you said we wanted to start establishing a very loose routine, and also wanted to watch a film in the evening without having the sound down low. We had a monitor and checked on her frequently and she was fine.

    By all means try it but James wouldn't settle in his crib until he was a bit older.

    By 9 weeks he was just fine though

    It was about 5/6 weeks that we started doing it with Harry. I'd say whatever works for you & baby and whatever you feel comfortable doing xxx

    I don't think that's too early. We give J his bath at 20.30pm, then DH gives him his last bottle - he is normally asleep by 21.30pm - and for the last few nights, instead of keeping him downstairs with us, we have put him to bed in our room...and it's working well so far!

    Good luck :) xx

    Going to try a loose kinda routine tonight and we'll see how it goes. Think it'll take a few nights to find what works for us.

    I think I'm going to start trying with Libby this week.

    Fx as she's started to wake up when I put her in her crib she does get herself back to sleep but normally she stares at me while she's drifting off.

    H takes ages to settle in his Moses basket so I'm hoping the cot makes a difference. We can only but try.

    I think I out Luca in his cot about 6 weeks, he was fine, but we put big rolled up blankets either side of him so he didn't feel it was so big compared to his Moses basket. He loves his cot now, it's the only place he will sleep now!

    William went into his bed about 6 weeks ago so he would have been 9 weeks ish. Started by putting Moses basket in big bed and then transferred him and used lots of checking and monitors. He seems happy enough

    H has had naps in his cot and he's lay in there having a kick about when I've been doing jobs. He does seem to like it.

    He had a bottle about half seven. Drank it all (first time having a bottle of ebm) other half was so pleased to be able to feed him. H then had a cuddle and we put him down. He's cat napped and breast fed off me ever half a hr or so since but I don't mind. It's the first night of trying a routine. He's stayed calm and his wind hasn't been as bad as normal, so I'm pleased about that. :)

    Max is 12 weeks, he has his bath about 6pm, then last bottle and goes to bed between 7-730pm.
    He's been doing this since 7 weeks, so deffo give it a try. It's good to establish a routine at bedtime ASAP. Xx

    We had J in his cot in his room at 9 weeks when he started sleeping through. His cot wouldn't fit in our room so he was in the moses. He's been fine since so whatever works for you.

    We use the monitor and sensor mat and no hiccups so far xxxxx

    Ethan was about 5 weeks when we started a 'routine' - bath, bottle and in his moses basket in our room. When he outgrew his moses basket at 8 weeks, he went into his own room following the same routine xx
