Won't Sleep in Crib
Jan 25, 2005
I have a five week old that will not sleep in his crib. At first he would only sleep on my chest and now we have him sleeping in his car seat. At his one month appointment I questioned his doctor about this and he stated that now is the time to correct this "issue". He said to put him in the crib every night and if he hadn't fallen a sleep within 45 minutes to take him out and allow him to sleep in the car seat. This is day five and all he does is scream the whole time. I have tried putting pillows underneath the mattress, leaving a nightlight on and off, and leaving his mobile on and off, giving him a bath before, laying him down a wake and a sleep. Nothing is working. Once he calms down, he'll fall a sleep in my arms and I'll put him in the car seat and he won't wake up. Any suggestions would be great, I return to work in two weeks and would like to have him sleeping in the crib by than.
