Baby on Board - My Blog
Kovak:I let my little guy sleep in his swing at night. It's the only way he'll sleep long enough for me to get any real sleep. However, I am working on transitioning to his bassinet...slowly.
MsAmeera25:I did once when he was about 4 weeks, if you do it in the day I don't see why it would matter at night...I personally wouldn't because our swing is in the living room and far from the bedroom.
I'd probably move it to our room or his room if we were going to try it.
Sullivan is amused by the swing for about 30 seconds, then it's waterworks all around... so she's never fallen asleep in it.
I would be willing to do daytime (supervised) naps, but not whilst I was also sleeping. I think the SIDS concerns have to do with the head flopping forwards and restricting airflow, or the baby turning her head to the side into all of the pillowy things that usually line the swing (aka the "newborn insert").
