My DD is 5mo and has started moving in her cot so I need to transition her from a swaddle to a sleeping bag.
She has been in an Ergo cocoon up until now. I have been putting her in a sleeping bag but she just won't go to sleep with her arms free. She has a dummy and she just keeps taking it out, and then complaining til I go put it back in. I have been eventually putting a wrap or blanket over her and "pinning" her arms down with it which is working, but now I am starting to think that this isn't actually achieving anything and isn't helping her to learn to sleep with her arms free.
Oh, and I did start with just one arm out for 3 days but same thing - ended up putting wrap over the top to secure free arm.
Am I doing it right or can you offer suggestions on alternatives?
