reverting to swaddling

Mobile:  reverting to swaddling

Whoever said going back to swaddling during the 4m wakeful is a freaking genius.  Alice has been screaming her fool head off every time we put her in her PnP for the last week.  This is after 4 months of being an absolute fabulous sleeper.  So tonight after 45 minutes of playing the put her down/pick her up game, I decided to give the swaddle a try.  Between that and a veeery slow multi-step putting her down process, She has been asleep in her PnP for 30 minutes!  I call it a win.

Re: reverting to swaddling

  • Thanks for this! I've been wondering whether to try swaddling - my baby REALLY fights daytime sleep, and she kicks like mad. I will give it a try next time I want to put her down. (Although, miracle of miracles, she's asleep now!)

  • I haven't stopped swaddling... Tanner loves it and he isn't rolling over yet, and still in the RnP, so I'm going with it... I even had to go buy a bigger swaddle cause he grew out of his old one! haha. I don't know what we're going to do when he starts rolling over and doesn't fit in his RnP anymore ?!

  • We do this once in a while with DD when nothing else comforts her.  The only negative to this is when she wakes up she realizes she's swaddled and she's piised!  I try to catch her before she wakes to undo the swaddle.

  • Yup, we are still swaddling.  I refuse to stop doing it until DS is actually showing signs of rolling over from back to stomach.  He still jerks himself awake if he isn't swaddled, so hopefully he'll outgrow that soon.

    Crib time! We still swaddle in her crib. There have been a few posts/tips on how to transition from RNP to crib. GOod luck!

    This is us too!  I am scared to stop swaddling.  Since we started swaddling at 7 weeks, he sleeps 8 hours straight!

  • I don't intend to stop swaddling until I absolutely have to. Swaddling for naps in her swing is the only way she will sleep during the day, and at night she always breaks her arms out of the swaddle but somehow stays asleep. Swaddling is the GREATEST!

    I feel like Harvey Karp should get the Nobel Prize for the 5S's, basically.

  • We stopped swaddling 2 months ago. She always broke out of it anyway, and usually before she fell asleep. LOL. I am elated to announce she slept in her own bed until 6am! woot!!

    I hate you all. nbsp;K is a rolling monster, even in her Merlin suit. nbsp;I miss swaddling so much with the timing, I can't tell if her shiity sleep lately is 4month wakeful, lack of swaddling, or both,


    My Merlin suit comes tomorrow. Any luck with yours? And Ev likes to roll too, but he's still in his RnP at night. And he is definitely not an expert, doing it very rarely. I'm trying to break the swaddle and transition to his crib....needless to say naptime has been fun. Please note my sarcasm.

    dude, even in the Merlin suit?? If it helps at all, Alice is back in our bed tonight. All hell broke loose when I tried to put her down. Oops. I know I'm probably forming bad habits that I will regret later, but I'll deal with that when the time comes.
