My son was born with reflux and had colic. So needless to say he was a very fussy baby. The pediatrician said that he couldn't sleep flat on his back without having the reflux bother him so we began putting him in his bouncy seat when he was very young. The pediatrician said it was fine, just make sure that we buckled him in. He is 6 months old now and I figure in a couple of months he will be too heavy for the bouncy seat and want to transition him into his crib. Right now we put the bouncy seat in the crib, turn it on, and he goes right to sleep. However when you lay him in the crib, swaddled or not, he only sleeps about 15 minutes. We have just began to get him to sleep through the night so I want to know the best way to make the transition without messing up his pattern of sleeping through the night! Thanks in advance.
