Bassinet or boppy? user banned
Apr 23rd '10

My son is 3 weeks old and sleeps so much better in his boppy then in his bassinet.He constantly wakes up in his bassinet.Is it ok to let him sleep in his boppy? I usually put his boppy on my bed and lay next to him at nights.

they make a boppy newborn lounger made for sleeping *i think* so maybe you could invest in one to know he is safer.

When he's that young, I'd say you're safe with the boppy..I let mine do it..but I never started either one of them in a bassinet either..they both came home sleeping in their cribs :) BUTTT..during naps and all, they slept in the boppy either on the other end of the couch or my bed..but once I started thinkin' they were trying to roll over, I put a stop to it lol..try putting his boppy in his crib..A friend transitioned her baby from boppy to bed like that and it worked!

When my son was a newborn he would sleep on his boppy lounger only. I couldnt get him to sleep anywhere else so we put that in the bassinet and let him sleep on it. I say its ok until he starts moving around then it can be dangerous.

I have seen alot of infants move down and put their face in the side of the pillow. its very easy for them to do it. its only takes one time for your baby to do this while your asleep.
I suggest you not to do it.

It may seem that he can't move right now, but eventually he will be able to slip down and will have a hard time moving his face from the boppy. Mine had a strap that went between his legs and secured on the side. We had to have him sleep in it because of his sleep apnea due to acid reflux. Although, while he was sleeping in the boppy he was also hooked up to a monitor that would go off if he stopped breathing. So, besides the fact that he pretty much had to sleep in it, it was also a peace of mind that he was hooked up to a heart and breathing monitor. If it weren't for the monitor and having to be elevated while he slept, I'm not sure I would have been comfortable with it.
