My doctor suggested having LO out of the swaddle by 3 months. We're almost at 10 weeks and he will. not. sleep. without a swaddle. During the day I try to lay him down without one, but it never works. I try putting him down both asleep and drowsy. If he's not in his swaddle though, no matter how tired, he instantly wakes up. It stresses me and my partner far too much to let him cry it out. If I try loosening the swaddle, he breaks out and wakes up in the middle of the night. Any suggestions?
I'll add that the way he falls asleep is usually we'll change him, swaddle him, breastfeed him until he falls asleep in my arms, then we lay him down and he stays soundly asleep for 8+ hours swaddled.
