transition from Rock N Play to Crib

DS is 4 months old and has been in his rock n play since he was about 3 weeks because he has AR. We have tried a few nights to put him in his crib but he ends up waking up every 15-30 min.  Any tips from anyone that has transitioned? TIA!

    It was recommended to me (by Wife) to get a crib wedge. That helped the transition out since it wasn't an incline straight to flat change. It allowed C to get used to the surroundings, and the new feel of the crib. We only used it a few nights, and now she does great!

    ?

    Good luck!?

    We had the same problems. I started making him nap in his crib to get used to it then after about 2 weeks of that I put him in it at night.  I elevated one side of the mattress with my nursing school textbooks and then took a towel and rolled it up, made it into a "U" shape and put it under the sheet so if he slid down from the mattress being  being elevated his butt would hit the bottom of the U and he wouldn't roll to the bottom.  I also think the U shape helped him feel cuddled in like he did sleeping in the rock and play. I took a couple rough night but he is now sleeping 12 hours a night without waking in the crib and takes all his naps in there. YAY!

    We did this as well.  We have one side of the crib mattress elevated and blankets in a U shape under the sheets because of LO's reflux.  We also use the magic sleepsuit.  For the first few nights we would have to put him in the Rock N Play about halfway through the night, but now he has no problems sleeping in his crib.
