I am not yet a Mom but what I have seen people do is transition their baby from bassinet to crib and use a DockATot to help keep them stationary.

bellarose606 :  We use the Halo bassinet until my daughter was 4.5 months old at which point she was too tall for it. I didn’t really want to transition to the crib yet but with a good quality video monitor it really was sort of like she was still in the room (and really she was only one room over). I could even still hear her breathing through it! That helped me take the anxiety off. Caveat: my baby has been sleeping through the night since 2 months old. If I was still getting up to nurse all night I’d definitely go pack ‘n play. 

eta: once we stopped swaddling she just slept in PJs until it got cold and then we added a sleep sack for more warmth. My baby is happiest sleeping like a starfish lol.

Sleepsuits and blanket. Either in bed with me or in a co-sleeper

At 3 months, my DD was still in the Halo Swaddle Sack, but she constantly woke herself up with her startle reflex. Around 4 months when she learned how to break out of the swaddle, we put her in the Merlin and it was a DREAM. She stayed in that until almost 7 months I think. From birth until 6.5 months, she slept in the pack n play on the top level next to our bed, and after that she went to the crib. She was quite a traveler in her sleep as well, but it seemed to go ok, especially in the Merlin!

I had both of mine in the crib, still in my room.  My second still preferred to sleep on top of me so sometimes I would doze off while he was eating.  But he has always been higher needs and he’s 14mo and still does it…ugh. Both of mine wore sleep sacks and appropriate pjs underneath. First was swaddled as a newborn and I transitioned with a wrap that allowed you to swaddle or just swaddle the tummy.  My second never liked being swaddled so he was in pjs/sleepsack from the beginning. Maybe you should try the merlin sleep suit and then in the pack and play.

At 2months I put my son in his crib. I was only going to do it for one feeding but he stayed. I could hear and see him better on monitor and could turn off my bathroom light. Around 4m, we started using swaddle up and merlin magic suit to transition out of swaddle. 6m, did cio. He’s 22m now and sleeping through night ever since.

We went from armsreach cosleeper bassinet to a Baby Bjorn travel crib lite at about 6 months.  (Baby bjorn travel crib is similar to a pack&play but smaller and more portable and has mesh all the way to the bottom.) Our daughter always slept in footie pajamas with a Halo sleepsack swaddle with her arms out at that point.  (With the velcro parts just wrapped around her belly, not her arms.)  Eventually she switched to a Halo sleepsack without the swaddle part, which she still uses most nights at 18 months.  She moved from the travel crib in our room to her real crib in her own room at about 1 year old.

I highly recommend buying a zipadee zip from sleepingbaby.com.  It is a great swaddle transition sleep sack.  It confines him a bit, but still allows him to roll around. Plus, I love that it keeps his hands warm. My baby is 5 months and started sleeping in his zipadee-zip at 3 months.  He also starred sleeping through the night at that time!!  He also sleeps in his crib in his own room (he has since birth because he is a noisy sleeper and we couldn’t get any sleep with him in our room!)

DS slept in the top cradle part of the pack and play while swaddled. Once he started to roll, we just left his arms unswaddled. We transitioned to crib in his own room at 6.5 months.

At 3 months she was sleeping for 4-5 hours stints at night, with 1 nurse in between. She was in the crib, with a monitor, sleep sack and a long sleeve sleeper. I preferred not co-sleeping, I was very paranoid about smothering her in my sleep. I’m a sound sleeper and didn’t want to risk it. She was very squirmy as a baby when she slept, still is now, I hate sharing a bed with her.

bellarose606 :  don’t worry it will come back! My baby was waking up every 45 minutes for a couple of nights last month when she was sick so we brought her back into our room. My husband was worried it was going to make her want to be in our room all the time, but once she was feeling better she was perfectly happy to go back to her own space.
