Transitioning from the bassinet to a crib can be a stressful process for parents. Boys Town Pediatrics offers advice for parents during the transition.
Many parents choose to have their newborn sleep in their room for the first couple months. Parents bond with their newborn and learn their baby’s needs as they form sleep and feeding patterns.
Being able to fall asleep at bedtime and sleep through the night is an important step for healthy sleep. Most babies are sleeping through the night in their own crib by 6 months of age. Contact your pediatrician if your baby is having trouble adjusting.
