    My DS is a tummy sleeper and uses an ergo sleeping bad. Keeps him warm but he still wakes more often on cold nights because his nose and ears get cold I've started using a heater on the lowest setting in his room just for that. He has also been rolling onto his back to sleep then rolls back to his tummy and wakes.

    My bub likes his hands by his face... Yesterday I tried to put him down for his day nap in just a grobag and it was a disaster. He didn't settle. I watched in secret from a distance and saw his arms flap around when he was just about to sleep and then he would crack it.. (Obviously hadn't lost the startle reflex yet).

    The longer you wrap the longer it takes for the startle reflex to go away. They have to get use to having their arms out for it to go away fast. My DS was born 20.01.14 and lost his around 3 weeks ago I stopped wrapping roughly 2 weeks before.

    I think I'm going to go cold turkey with wrapping. Surely his waking couldn't be any worse than what it is now...

    Can I suggest trying 'sleepy wings' instead of just cold turkey no swaddle? They can suck and chew hands but body is in a sleeping bag

    I was using the love to dream Swaddle for naps and grobag for night before this sleep regression happened because he was sleeping fine with arms out except at naps, he seems to need more help at naps, doesn't know how to settle his arms. Because last week was so bad I used the love to dream at night, it helped a little, mostly with settling because his arms were out of the way. Night before last was in love to dream and had a normal night and didn't need to be resettled in between feeds. Last night was in grobag but initially needed to be resettled after first sleep cycle then slept until 12.15, then 3.15 but then 5.30 (resettled), quick feed at 6, chatted sleepily and then up at 7. I think he needs his arms contained for that early morning light sleep.

    I think I'm going to just use the love to dream and then switch to the 50/50 in a couple weeks, then grobag. Or should I look into sleepy wings? He's not rolling yet but I have a fear of him rolling for the first time without his arms free which is why I keep switching back to the grobag. I have a breathing monitor and audio but I'm still just so anxious.

    Last night I did what Gina ford recommended with a grobag and then a light sheet/muslin tucked tightly across him, which I guess adds a little pressure like a swaddle. Not sure if that helped, maybe it did until early morning when he seems to need his arms more contained.

    What do you girls think?

    Interesting ... I've never heard this before... I've always read that the reflex goes away between 4-6 months. Do you have any further info?

    Not sure... Could he changing back and forth be unsettling bub? If bub sleeps better swaddled then I would swaddle until there are stronger indications bub can roll...

    Aren't sleepy wings pretty much the same as the 'love to dream' swaddle?

    QEC the sleep school has info on it and ask your Mchn. Sleepy wings are like the love to dream swaddles.
