When should you start putting your little one in a crib rather than a bassinet?

i tried to move my 4 week old baby in a crib for two nights. she was fine, but last night she ended on her stomach off the positioner that we use. i didn't feel comfortable with that so tonight she's back in her snug bed until she gets bigger for the crib.

It depends on the baby and on the mommy. My baby hated the ba__sinette and slept better in the crib only after a few weeks old. I slept better to, I didnt hear his every move and wake up to it. Just watch your baby signs. Is he comfy, sleeping well, have enough room?

I agree with Alisha, we put Amaya in her crib after about 3 weeks. She slept almost all night after about a week. We all slept better.

Our pediatrician wanted our daughter to be in a crib by 3 months. I wanted to wait until I had gone back to work, so there wouldn't be so much transition at once, but she stopped sleeping in the ba__sinet and once we put her in the crib, she slept great.

my situation is exactly how Alisha stated. My baby grunts alot, so we moved him to the crib at 3 weeks and I sleep so much better now. I felt bad at first, but now I'm feeling much better (he is 6 weeks now). He didn't like the ba__sinette and seems to like the crib much better :)

My daughter was in her crib in her own room since day 1. It really depends on your child. I am glad I had to never think about this. I wont have a ba__sinet with my son either

Thank you very much for all the advice! I will try when he is three weeks!

we put my daughter in the crib when she was 7 weeks (a week ago) She is doing really good I am the one with the issues. I dont want her to be alone in the room so I made a pallet on the floor and me and my fiance sleep in there with her every night. I know its crazy but It is so hard for me to leave her we tried to sleep in our room lastnight and I couldnt do it. We are going to try again this weekend. Wish me luck lol...and good luck with you baby!!
