my lo moves A LOT during the day and in her sleep, last night she moved so much I tried swaddling her again the morning .....first time didn't really work....and shes now sleeping and very still.
can she be swaddled for the whole night? this seems like a long time!
for about the first 3 months we swaddled our little girl through the night. we used a velcro swaddleme since i am not very talented at swaddling with a blanket! i'd take it off if her diaper needed changing but otherwise she stayed in it the whole night. i really think it helped her get decent stretches of sleep during the first few months because her arms and hands would often wake her. it was a tough transition going without it at first-- especially psychologically for me, since i was convinced she couldn't sleep without it-- but sleep is now kinda sorta tentatively normal again!
My LO loves to be swaddled at night, he looks so comfy all wrapped up. I unswaddle him to change his nappy and to feed him as he likes to have his hands out when he feeds. He has started wriggling his hands out sometimes now to suck on them.
Our LO is still swaddled. I just use a cotton blanket and usually when I wake up he's gotten his arms free.. I wish I started with something like the halo sleeping bag swaddle so it would be an easy transition.. I'm scared to make the switch because hes always slept so well swaddled
Our little boy is still swaddled all night. I use a cot sheet. I've tried to wean him off it but its just not happening atm... The first night we tried he woke up 14 times, compared to just once for a feed when hes swaddled! He manages his daytime naps without being swaddled but hes obviously not a fan during the night just yet. x
I swaddled through the night till LO was 4ish months. At the start I used to unswaddle to feed but it would wake him to much do I stopped. I waited until he showed signs of not wanting to be swaddled before I stopped and he transitioned fine to a sleeping bag xx
