My baby’s crib is beautiful, but she won’t sleep in it!


I spent months searching for the perfect crib for my daughter and ended up falling in love with Heidi Klum’s Truly Scrumptious design just before it was about to be retired. My husband and I rushed to Buy Buy Baby as soon as we found out there were only three cribs left in stock. I was so excited that we got my dream crib. One feature that won me over was the curved front so I would easily be able to lean over and put Genevieve in for her naps.


That has yet to happen, though.

My six month old is still sleeping in bed with me.

I’ve tried the bedside co-sleeper but that was no help.

Here’s the problem: Genevieve can roll from her back to her stomach but not her stomach to her back. So as soon as she lands on her stomach, she wakes up and it’s game over. When she’s in bed with me (safely- no pillows or blankets in her reach), I can hold her near my side and keep her on her back all night. She sleeps wonderfully, but I don’t.

I like to move around at night and find staying on one side leaves me achy. But what other option do I have?

Nighttime cuddles are great, especially since we don’t get many during the day. But I do hope we graduate to the crib soon!
