Should my newborn sleep in a bassinet or cradle?
You can absolutely have your baby sleep in a bassinet or cradle before transitioning her to a crib! The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends sharing a room with newborns and young infants. Having your baby in a bassinet in your room can ensure that you can share the same room while having her sleep on a safe surface. It is also convenient to have your baby in the bedroom when you do night feedings, which are common at that age.About Dr. Jocelyn Thomas
