Hi Ladies!

I am 26 and I have a 5 month old who is almost 6 months, and I am having some struggles. Kaylee has been sleeping in her rock n play by fisher price since she was 2 months, and I am having a heck of a time getting her to sleep in her crib. She will take naps in it during the day but at night when I put her down she will not stay. She will wake up every 2 hours. For example I will feed her, her fruit n cereal at 7, then bath and bottle and bed by 8 or 8:30.

Any suggestions will be helpful. Do I change bed time, let her cry it out, what?? I don't mind getting up with her but I don't know if at this age she should be getting up every 2 hours. She was sleeping from 9-7 prior to this. Any help would get amazing!

Thanks so much

I'm not sure just how helpful I can be because I have always co slept. But I have heard that putting toys and things in the crib can be helpful. We did get our youngest a fisher price aquarium looking thing that makes different noises and plays music. It seemed to help but I'm a softy. You can do the cry out method at 6 months if you want to. I did it with my oldest but I refuse to do it this time around...I hope this helped a little bit.
