Yep sleeping bags replace blankets so use them all the time... I have a couple of plum sleeping bags & a couple of the gro bags, all good :-) try to avoid the ones with arms as the benefit if them being sleeveless is that it helps regulate their body heat, if you need to by any look on UK websites, they are heaps cheaper than here ;-)
Have a look a this link, you'll be able to see what you need to dress her in according to room temp & what warm the bag is :-)
I'm wrecked today up 4 times last night! I don't know how you do it SL Ella must be having a growth spurt at 12.3 weeks
Ivy also screams everytime I wrap her!! But its a protest scream....So annoying! I'm sorry things are tough, she prob is going through growth spurt id say...
The thing that annoys me that in her basinett she will only have 45 min naps, but in the car of we go out or in her pram on a walk she will nap for hours!!! It's just getting through that first sleep cycle in the basinett doesn't work...and she self settles in there so it's not as if she is waking in a different place than she fell asleep...Grrr I hope it's just an age thing!!
KM does Ella scream every nap and at bedtime? What did you bed up doing to get her to sleep?
Nic she screams mostly at bedtime, she will cry during the day but its not a scream. She sleeps in her bassinet and I just persist with settling even when she screams. If she gets too overwhelmed I sit with her.
So hard isn't it, sounds like your doing well, I'm sure the persistence will pay off. Ivy also cries the most at bed...naps it's just the 45 min thing then she cries.
I hope tonight is better than last andante once she is through this growth spurt things will settle.
Yeah we have screaming from the time after his bath, quiet on the boob and story time, as soon as we put his wrap on he looses it. Then calm him and starts when he is placed in the bassinet. I then walk away as he is protest crying. I leave 2-5 mins depending how I am. If he stops and starts I leave him, to settle himself. If he gets really worked up I go in and pat him.
Waking during the night is very rare for us but I just feed him and he settles very quickly.
During the day I've tried everything and we still only do one cycle, I've just kind if accepted it now even though it drives me up the wall!
Thanks for the sleeping bag tips I've been meaning to buy some. We are sleeping on the cot during the day, but need to move him soon as he is so big!
When are you guys thinking of moving to solids? There is so much conflicting info that I'm thinking of doing 5 months as a happy medium...
