Wish me luck!

DS has been really fighting the swaddle lately and I've tried the one arm a couple times but then he just struggles to get his other arm free.  So tonight after he fought it for a few minutes I've decided to try and unswaddle cold turkey!  Not sure how this will go tonight but....I guess it doesn't hurt to try.  Wish me luck, this could be a bumpy ride!

  • Good luck!!  We decided to try every weekend until we get it here because all Jack does is fight the swaddle.

  • After less than 10 minutes and no tears he is out cold looking' like a starfish!  Here's hoping he stays that way!

  • We went cold turkey a couple weeks ago. It surprisingly wasn't all that bad. She still has trouble falling asleep the first time if she's not really exhausted because she wants to move her arms around a lot but I just help her by standing over her crib keeping her arms down for a few minutes until she falls asleep. Once she is asleep we have no problems getting back to sleep after her first feeding [other than a few scratches on her face]

    ETA good luck!

    That's awesome! Hoping it stays that way. DS a week and a half ago just started freaking out when I would swaddle him, so on Friday I just went with it and we never looked back. I was really worried about stopping cold turkey...no 1 arm or anything...but he did great. Didn't sleep better but not worse either. Good luck tonight!

  • Good luck to you! We stopped cold turkey as well and it worked out for us. Although now my DS loves to sleep face down in his crib which freaks me right out. But he is a much happier sleeper and is now STTN, technically, he only gets up once for a feeding compared to the 2-3 times a night when we were swaddling him.

    Yeah for crib sleeping!  It made both DS and I sleep so much better.

    I'm jealous of the crib sleeping! DS sleeps in the swing, which we did at least move downstairs to his room a couple weeks ago. That helped A LOT, but I am really looking forward to him sleeping in the crib, because that swing is a HASSLE to haul around.

    worked well for us! i went from the tight velcro summer swaddle thing and found him face down one night to just a sleep sack with no arms. went way better than i was expecting and he sleeps fine with just the sleep sack!

    good luck!!

  • Good luck! and I am happy to hear so many success stories.  DS breaks out of his swaddle every night but so far I cannot get him to sleep more than 20 minutes without being swaddled unless he is in his swing or on me.  I am thinking of trying no swaddle at night next week but am a little chicken because he is clearly going through the 4 month sleep regression and I have doubts as to whether it will do any good right now.

  • We're swaddleless now. I decided to use a sleep sack to take him down a notch. It's still keeping him kind of confined and MA is getting rain and cold at night so its working since they're fleece.
