Yeah we use the wrap me up and it's brilliant. However, if DD is really unsettled a firm swaddle using a cot sheet works better. This was especially true when she was smaller as it really contains that startle reflex. We learned how to do a good firm swaddle at tresillian and she slept for hours there!
ellen barron centre for sleep here in bris does use crying (controlled or whatever but crying) as a method of settling. Its up to you if you are keen for it.
We have had a good few days. Now settling seems to be difficult less frequently. That or I'm just more relaxed! I'm trying to go with the flow a bit more and it's working well. That and accepting that she will be unsettled some days and that's normal.
Thanks everyone for your advice. I think I just have one of those kids that sleeps poorly!!!
