I need opinions from my fellow moms

Hi moms. So as many of you know, we are ready for sleep training. However, at the moment, we are living with my parents. We have a pack n play for elianna and I'm wondering if I should just sleep train her in that? Or if we should set up the crib. I guess I'm wondering if we should do the pack n play or just go right to doing the crib. If I do the pack n play will I have to sleep train her all over again when I move her to the crib? Also, she still likes to be swaddled. Should I continue to swaddle her or stop that too?

    Keep swaddling if it helps her sleep. Try keeping a steady bed/nap schedule, sleeping anywhere as long as its the same routine should work. Go with your instincts.

    My mom started her at nap time. She only cried for 20 min. Fell asleep. Woke back up after 15 minutes. Went back to sleep for 2 hrs. I had to wake her up to go somewhere. Then for bed time I put her to bed swaddled but awake. She took her arms out. I quickly went down and re-swaddled her. She only cried a total of 30 minutes and fell asleep.

      Keep up the swaddling if she likes that. I would imagine the sleep training would work with any bed as long as the time schedule is the same.

      Right now I'm sleep training her in the bassinet. So you think she will do ok when we move her? She's in the bassinet still cuz we are temporarily living with my mom and dad.

      I would assume. I've never done sleep training.
