My 5.5 month baby always fights going to sleep and the only way I can get her to go to sleep is when she is on this chair:http://www.1stbabyshop.co.uk/uploade...big/do_151.jpg
In her crib, she will cry if she is about to go to sleep - she is fine in there when she is awake, but when she is tired she will just cry and cry - I have tried so many things to get her to see it is ok to go to sleep in her crib, and always no dice.
Same thing with her swing.
The chair in the picture above it is also the same thing, until I rock it, I have to rock it in swift movements otherwise she gets upset. The char vibrates, but she wants that deep rocking motion. I thought since she likes movement, her swing would be agreeable to her, but it is not, she wants the swift movement of this chair. Though every once in a while, she allows herself to fall asleep in the swing and she seems to sleep longer in the swing than anywhere else, but I can't always get her to fall asleep in there.
She sleeps instantly in the car, but once the car stops, she will often wake up.
So with the rocker, now my arm feels like it is going to fall off - does anyone know of any other products that may have that same sort of movement - or does anyone have any tips for babies who seem to only go to sleep in movement?
