My LO is 5 months and has always been swaddled to sleep, He's been going to bed at 8pm waking at 2am and again at 5-6am for bottles but usually goes back down no problem at all. My HV Said that I should start letting him sleep without the swaddle as he needs to get used to having his arms free, but I've tried over the past 2 nights and as a result both me, OH and LO have been up nearly ALL the night!! He keeps waking himself up every half hr or so startling in his sleep! What do you think I should do, go back to swaddling or not?? I am at a bit of a loss, I dont want to go against the HV but we all really need some sleep??!!!
