Quoting Commander Shepard:" Have you considered cosleeping?"
ya when she was first born to about 2 months i did that but now she doesnt wanna do that again. I took the bassinet part out of the pack n play and putting her on the bottom but wit 2 adult comfertors folded for softness.

I've co-slept since day one and he started getting like that..for about a week I slept with him on my chest and then I thought hmmm maybe he is sleeping good because he is on his tummy. so i started putting him on his tummy and it works great. I know that is not "recommended" but its what works for us. All I do is lay him down, give him his paci, and 9/10 times he is out like a light :) he is 4 months old.

Also what do you mean by she doesn't want to co-sleep anymore?

Dexters 5 months on friday and the last 2 weeks or so (he was a bit ill so wanted cuddles ALL the time.) he's been a nightmare. but I figured that if i lay with him in my bed untill his proper asleep and gently move him to his crib he'll sleep all night. and wake normal time (9pm till 9am) . since i've been doing that he is slowly getting to sleep on his own more and more.
