DS2 is 4½ months old. He has been rolling over for a few weeks now. He was sleeping in a Love To Dream swaddle and was a really good sleeper and self settled very well. For the past week we have changed him to a sleeping bag and his sleeping has gone to the dogs. He has gone from having day sleeps of around 2 hours each, to ones that are lucky to be 1 hour long. His night sleeping has been really bad too. Normally he wakes for feeds and goes straight back to sleep afterwards with not a problem, but now he can be unsettled for periods of 3 hours! His hands still flail about all over the place and I'm thinking this is keeping him awake. He has never actually rolled over in bed so do I have to stop putting him in the wrap???? It's not the type of wrap that allows you to really transition one arm out at a time or anything either. It contains his hands but he can move them to his face and suck on them without his arms being free enough to whack about all over the place. Do I persist with the sleeping bag or go back to the wrap and try again in a few weeks??? I have a sensor monitor for his cot, so if he got into trouble and stopped breathing I would know.
Why do babies have to be so different? DS1 went into a sleeping bag at 3 months and had no problems whatsoever with it.
