I've had my son in a rock and play sleeper since he came home from the hospital and is now 7 weeks old. the weight limit on them is 25lb right now my son is about 12lb maybe more we go back to the doctor next week so I'll know where he is then. Anyway length wise he is starting to look to big even though I couldn't find a length limit for the bed. I want to transition him to the crib but he doesn't seem to like it. The sleeper kind of cradles him so he's secure in it and can't move around a lot like he can in the crib. I've thought of swadling him but it's starting to get warm out we don't have air conditioning and are in the top half of a duplex, he also gets warm easily there have been a couple nights where he has sweated through his onsie so I'm not sure if that will work. The few times I've put him in it after he's been asleep he moves and wakes himself up and won't go back to sleep. I've thought about just putting him in it and try to console him when he wakes up at night. Currently he is sleeping from 10 or 11 at night to 6 or 7 in the morning and I would really like this to continue and I think that's why I've been reluctant to move him.
