Ugh. I think I totally screwed myself. I didn't realize it but I guess I set Evan up to bond with his Aden and Anais blankets (he would have one in his car seat, and in his swing). So when I go to try and wean him from the swaddle for overnight, the ONLY thing that will calm him is if he has one of those blankets in there with him.
Of course I can't sleep knowing it's in there with him (hello, strangulation and suffication risk!) so I tried letting him fall asleep with it, then took it away. Have done this multiple times and every.single.time he wakes right up and is in full freak out mode.
Most nights end with me having to put him back in the darn swaddle, which he then fights on and off for the rest of the night.
Sorry this wasn't extremely coherent, I'm running on 4 hours of sleep.
Any ideas on deswaddling? Thoughts on the blankey? I thought about maybe cutting one up so it's the size of a kleenex or something... I don't know.
