My 7month old has either slept in our bed, or her little cosleeper bed next to my side of the bed until she was about 5months old. About that time my husband and I started using her bouncer to sometimes rock her to sleep and for the past 2months thats pretty much where she sleeps now. We both WISH that she would sleep with us in our bed or her little co sleeper bed but she just wont. When I nurse her in the bed with us she'll fall asleep but then wake up tossing and turning until she is put back into the bouncer. She is getting too big for the bouncer now too, so I'm feeling a little rushed in trying to figure out what to do with her sleeping habits. Now it seems like its the bouncer and the room itself. I've tried to even move the bouncer into our room and as soon as I do she wakes up. (We live in a 1 bedroom)
I've recently tried to incline the mat in her co sleeper bed to mimic the bouncer but as soon as I lean over to put her in she wakes up, even when I keep my body close to her. And I've also waited for her to be asleep for about 45min before I've moved her and that also doesn't work. :(
Any advice??? Please??
