I have a 3.5month old, my first, and have an unusual question... I've googled to no avail. I wear him for most of his naps, in an Ergo or a Pikkolo or a Moby. He will sometimes fall asleep with me just walking around, but as he's gotten older he's doing that less, and now I can still put him to sleep in it, almost always, by spinning. I don't remember how I figured it out, but if I stand and spin in a circle, he'll fall right asleep in a minute or two, tops. Is that bad for him? Or is it fine? I mean, it looks funny when I do it in public, but other than that, it doesn't bother me. And it is a practically guaranteed way to get him to sleep! I don't spin super fast, but not slow, either.
Any thoughts? TIA
I don't see any reason it would be harmful, unless you're getting dizzy to the point where it's a falling hazard. Otherwise, congrats on finding a way to get the little man to sleep.

@FarmerMomma, I also support his head with one hand and pat his back with the other. Just FYI if you're going to try it. Good luck!
