    Default Self settling

    Since I have stopped swaddling DD and put her in her cot she just cries when I put her to bed.. Normally when I put her to bed she self settles herself..

    In so stressed at the moment, feels like her whole routine with her bottles and sleeping has gone completely out the window.. 😢

    Have you thought about introducing a comfort object? My DS is almost 8 months and I stopped swaddling him at 6 months. I did it gradually, one arm at a time every few days, and also gave him a teddy to sleep with as I was watching him flapping his arms around while trying to fall asleep. He now cuddles his teddy while falling asleep.

    Second that. It worked brilliantly with DD and our comfort object has become a 'cue' for bed/ nap time- when mum gets it out it's time to sleep.

    I also used a comforter when we stopped swaddling. My dd seemed to like the feel of muslin so each night she cuddles one to sleep. It definitely helps. She also has a dummy.

    Hang in there. .. They get used to not being swaddled pretty quickly. Though it doesn't seem like it at the time.
