If she sleeps well with her arms up, have you tried her with no swaddle? No all babies like to be swaddled. If she's not startling and waking herself up, I wouldn't bother with swaddling.
How about a sleeping bag, such as a grobag? You can get summer weight and winter weight and adjust clothing underneath accordingly. No other bedding required then. My little ones all loved them.
I use sleepy wings for my 4 month old DD. It just covers her arms and avoids her startling herself or scratching her face.
Cool thanks for the help I might have to invest in one if these for bub and see how she goes =)
I just flat out stopped wrapping ds at 2wks. We just used blankets, and made basinette/cot as per sids guidelines.
I couldn't sleep with him grunting and wiggling all night.... And I figured he wasnt sleeping well either...
Proudly brought to you by me and my autocorrect fail device.
Sleepy wings are great for hands up sleeping.
My DS was born in November and I ditched the wrap pretty much immediately- he hated it! But I dressed him in a lightweight long sleeve suit at night to make sure his arms were warm enough.
