hi mummiess, as per above... any advices? TIA =)
I posted my problem in another thread also .
As follow , Please help:
My baby is sleeping in portable Yaolan since the 2nd month onward as we are really tired out trying to rock her to sleep in our arms. Now she sleep in the yaolan in the living room alone as her own room has the baby cot.
During the first week of the second month , we tried to rock her in the yaolan then carry her back to the cot but she cannot sleep in the baby cot too long as she will cry and soaking in sweat even though we on the fan .
So after that we just leave her in the yaolan and she slept thru out the night.
Few days ago,we bring her to my parent in law place, she scream and cry as she got problem sleeping . End up , bring her over and back home in less than 2hrs .
My parent place have no such problem as they install the yaolan's hook in the ceiling and my mum took out the spring system out and my baby can happily sleep inside as we rock her to sleep and we can stay there the whole day .
My question is will my baby have problem switching back to baby cot when she get older ?
Any parents out there using the yaolan ? Can share your experience with me ?
Now my baby is 3 month old .
may i know whether did you train your baby to sleep on bed during night time?
for mine is he slept in yaolan during the day time, night time i train him on bed.
yup.. go out is no choice need to shake in arm.. but if they are tire they will also sleep even you didn't shake them.
if need to shake , then you might have to find one place where not so noisy give them sleep already then put them in the stroller..
I replied to rainbow1234 post earlier.
aye... all you parents instill bad habits on your kids wahaha~~ *run away before kena rotten eggs*
what raeka did is correct, yaolan for nap is good but rocking while baby is sleeping in your arms is not advisable unless you want your arms to break LOL. As i told rainbow1234 in her post, put baby in yaolan n rock till baby sleep then transfer to cot. Of coz while transferring be gentle n no big movement otherwise baby will be awaken. You may have to transfer baby to & fro yaolan if baby is unable to fall back to sleep when he woke up during the transfer. also I find that when I am transferring son fm yaolan to cot and whisper softly to him that we are moving him to the cot, he do not fuss or wake up shocked n crying when he open his eyes n see that he is in the cot. We can pat him back to sleep.
AugBoyz , I do not have a auto rocker , i rock my baby to sleep , when she sleep , we stop rocking her.
Any good mattress to introduce? I better wean it off before it become really hard to wean it off .
How big is your boy now ?
now your baby is light you can rock in your arms, when she is 5-6mths old, i think you will cry whenever you have to rock her to sleep in your arms.
Instead of rocking why dont try patting her to sleep? Or you sit prop up on the bed n lay her on your chest? Sometimes this helps them to fall asleep too.
I swing her using the yaolan . If not , my arms break long time ago . I got a disc problem with my back , cannot carry her very long too .
I try to pat her to sleep initally but she just cannot get to sleep . Need someone to carry her and rock her . End up we bought the yaolan to solve the problem . But a new problem come up ... urghhhh ....
Mine is a three month old monster ... hahahaha .
im contemplating to get a yaolan for my 9weeks old baby as he refused to sleep if he's not carried in our arms. however, looking at these threads, yaolan may not b a good solution either. so does any1's pediatrician suggest the ultimate / ideal solution to "train" our baby to sleep anywhere and everywhere?
augboyz mtd of laying on the chest worked wonders for me. however, once my dear son fell asleep on my chest, i had difficulties transfering him back to cot as he will end up awaken by the chg on position.. in the end, i seize the oppt to rest with him. however, this aint a solution if we are out at our parents plc..still hoping he cn sleep easily on his own ..
For my baby, I dont have to wean off as all along last time in the morning baby used yaolan, at night put on bed.
Baby grew too big at 6 months to feel happy in yaolan.
One fine day, fly out of the yaolan by own, landed on the mattress placed below just in case. "Flying Baby" scared us with the act, I keep pressing around baby see and check got any broken bone. Luckily all is fine.
From then no more yaolan anymore.
No broken parts. Everything is fine. Better place a foldable mattress beneath the yaolan, in case baby roll out of yaolan by own self can still be safe if land on the soft area.
I think my monster has got no problem in sleeping in anywhere n on anything coz since he was a baby we do not practice silence while he is sleeping. We try to go about our daily routines as usual and not specifically ensure everyone shushed in quietness. We even on the tv/radio at a low volume just to create some noise. Yaolan is only at home, my mum who takes care of him in the day time pats him to sleep. When we are out, we make him sleep on friends' bed/sofa, we NEVER carry him (dont want our arms to break ).
