    Afraid to move him.

    Advertisements
    Bowen was inconsolable tonight. He cried for nearly an hour straight. He was acting hungry but spit everything out, my nipple, the bottle, his paci. He didn't want to rock or bounce or walk or stay still. He finally cried himself to sleep and I put him in his crib. He woke up immediately and started screaming again, so when he fell back asleep I put him in his swing. I so desperately want to go to bed but I'm afraid to move him to his crib. He cried so hard his eyelids are red and almost look bruised. I can't put him through that again, but I'm not comfortable leaving him in his swing. I know it's not a huge deal for them to cry for seemingly no reason, but this is the first time this has happened and it broke my heart and wore me out.

    Yeah, I think this will be a couch night for me. Which sucks since we have a loveseat, but it'll do I guess.

    Let him sleep in it for the night. Or until he wakes to eat. I've done it before. Just gently buckle him in.

    I've done it a few times.

    Ds slept in a swing for about 2 months when we did not have room for a bed in the teeny tiny room we were staying in.

    Well, I turned off the swing, and so far he hasn't woke up. I broke my neck when I was 13 and if I sleep weird I won't be able to move tomorrow. I can already feel my neck starting to stiffen up. I can't sleep out here so I'm going to have to get him to bed.

    Can you move the swing? My son had to sleep upright when he was a baby and we became quite adept at moving the swing without waking him.

    I hope you both get good sleep tonight!

    Do you have an inflatable guest bed or a sleeping sack (put a thick comforter underneath)? You could give those a try since the loveseat sounds really uncomfortable.
