Aunt Flo seems to be back even though I'm EBF. Yay!
@kvruns have you tried just putting him down at nap/bed time and not coming back for ten mins? I sleep trained this way with my first. Every ten mins I'd walk back in to south and it didn't take long for her to figure out how to fall asleep on her own... maybe a week?
@kvruns & @ladybug2821 If the swaddle helps then why not continue swaddling them? Screw what is recommended and go with what works for your LO. Eventually it will all work itself out and your sleep is very important.
@SandNStarsNJ he flipped over one night with arms in. That's why I started doing arms out. He hasn't flipped since though. I think if I could get him to sleep with no swaddle at all then he might end up a belly sleeper but not sure how to even start seeing
Thanks guys! Part of me wants to do arms in and part of me says I've made it this far so don't go back.
@kvruns Have you thought about trying the zipadee zip? My first was a swaddle baby and had such a hard time transitioning out of it. The zipadee helped so much, he slept in one until he was just over a year old. They can safely roll over in it, crawl, stand, etc. Just a thought.
Does anyone else have experience with the zipadee zip? I really need to find something but I'd hate to shell out the money on something that is a hassle to return if it doesn't work. Two days into work and I'm already feeling more exhausted than I was being at home with her 24/7.
