When did you move your child from a bassinet to a crib?

When did you move your baby from a bassinet/playpen to a crib? My son is almost four months old and just wondering when it would be safe to move him into the crib. Thanks!


My daughter was 5 months old when we moved her and she did great.

I moved mine when they could roll both ways. Mine were sitting up at 4 1/2 months

When they start to sit up

It’s safe to move him to the crib right away! Remember the ABCs: place him Alone, on his Back, in the Crib or safe sleep space. There shouldn’t be any blankets, positioners, or bumpers in the crib with him :blush:

Edit to add, my daughter has slept in her crib since day 1 that we brought her home from the hospital.


When they dont fit and move them to another room.

Birth, as long as there is nothing else in the crib with the baby

Never. My daughter was in her crib from day one. So whenever you’re comfortable.

All mine went straight to the crib in their own room

My daughter went in her crib in her room at 1 month when my husband went back to work.

Most bassinets have a weight limit

Since day one, my little man has been in the crib in our room. He never really liked the bassinet because he moves around so much.

I moved mine when they started to roll


My kids have all stayed in a small crib in my room until they were about 7 months old or so

My sons bassinet drops down, he’ll be 1 in a month and he still sleeps in there, hates his pack n play, we dont have a lot of space so it works great for us.
