Why Won’t My Baby Sleep In A Moses Basket?

-

Many parents are at their wit’s end trying to get their baby to sleep through the night. One common suggestion is to put the baby in a Moses basket.

However, many parents find that their baby will not sleep in a Moses basket. There could be several reasons for this, and some solutions are offered below.

1. Your baby is not used to sleeping in a Moses basket

If this is the case, it will take some time for the baby to get used to sleeping in the basket. Put the baby in the basket for short periods of time during the day so that he or she can get used to it.

2. Your baby maybe too young to sleep in a Moses basket

Moses baskets are meant for babies who are at least four months old. If your baby is younger than this, he or she may not be ready to sleep in a basket yet. Try using a bassinet or cradle instead.

3. Your baby could be uncomfortable

There could be several reasons why the baby is uncomfortable in the basket. Maybe the basket is too small, or maybe the baby does not like the way it feels

If the basket is too small, try using a larger one. If the baby does not like the way it feels, try putting a soft blanket in the bottom of the basket.

4. Your baby maybe used to sleeping in a crib

If the baby has been sleeping in a crib, he or she may not be able to adjust to sleeping in a Moses basket. Try putting the crib next to the basket so that the baby can get used to sleeping in it.

5. The environment is not conducive to sleep.

The environment plays a big role in whether or not a person can sleep well.If the environment is too bright, too loud, or too stimulating, it will be hard for the baby to sleep

Make sure the room where the baby sleeps is dark, quiet, and calm.
