So right now I'm in my room watching LO on the video monitor. He is wide awake, in his crib, sucking on his hands, "talking" and trying to pull his sleep sack into his mouth!
Backstory: Last night was the first night he slept in his crib. He had been sleeping in his swing because of his reflux. During the day I tried putting him down for a nap in his crib and he did real well. So I decided to go for the whole night. He did great. However, when I watched him a couple times I noticed he was picking up his legs and rolling a little. My fear is that he is going to roll over while swaddled and not be able to breathe. Last night I rolled two receiving blankets and shoved them against hips and upper legs. This isn't going to work forever though.
Tonight is the first night I have tried not swaddling him. I put him in a sleep sack. It isn't going well as you may have noticed. He has a horrible startle reflex which is why I think he doesn't nap during the day, unless swaddled.
I now have to go swaddle him and get him to fall back asleep.
So I went and swaddled him. All but one arm. I'm watching the monitor and he does keep startling but he isn't waking up yet.
Does anyone know of some method that would decrease how much he startles? From what I read they said it goes away from 4-6 months. I just get worried about him rolling.
TIA for any advice. Thanks also for reading this!!!
