    An I'm also loving the support on having an older infant swaddled! Thanks ladies
    I honestly think im the laziest mum ever... if I can find a way to do things easier I will... for instance DD won't sleep for longer than 30-40 minutes during the day in cot so as we speak she is swaddled with 1 arm out in her rocker if it works I say do it
    Like I said if I have to keep swaddling DD till she is 1 I will lol

    Last night was our third swaddle free night. Dd slept marginally better than the night before which has given me just enough hope to keep going. She has to get the hang of it eventually right?
    I think you've done really well to get through 3 nights! Hopefully tonight will be better again!

    DD was a bit the same as newborn she'd be happy to sleep unswaddled I think for me it was more that she was a newborn and she slept alot and she'd sleep anywhere

    I'd call that smart parenting rather than lazy! :-D

    Thanks for all the encouragement on my deswaddling journey. It helps to have support out there.

    All I can say is with this heat, thank god ltd make a 'lite' swaddle. Poor bub. I like these better though as I feel like they have us moving in the right direction as they are thin and super stretchy. Won't be such a shock when I start trying the 50/50 again I hope.

    D'oh @AMC14! Oh well, better to have her fully swaddled and sleeping well!

    We're still swaddle free and struggling. I'm going to give it until Monday but if she's still waking 5+ times a night then she's going back in her swaddle too.

    You've got more perseverance than me!! I totally agree fully swaddled = sleep! Im going back to work a couple of days a week so I need her to sleep

    I don't know how you do the 5+ times a night.. id have given up! Great job!

    Welp. I won't be bothering with the 50/50 for a while. We've officially hit the 8 month sleep regression and he is having a terrible time settling. Normally it 10 minutes for naps and 1/2 hour at bedtime. Now it's at least 1/2 hour for naps and at least an hour at bedtime. He is having trouble staying asleep at night too. Hope this doesn't last long.

    @HeavenBlue If swaddling helps definitely stick with it. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you that the regression is short lived.
    @AMC14 that must have been so hard for your first night back working. I'm glad she's settled now.

    I'm so close to giving up my deswaddling efforts. Dd slept terribly again last night and has been an exhausted misery guts all day. The only thing stopping me is I feel like all my effort up to this point will have been wasted if I do. 😞
