Total 100% unswaddling fail 😡😁
She slept arms out in the sleeping bag for 45 minutes. Then 1hr 45 minutes of crying, cuddles to calm down, screaming, cuddles to calm down, screaming no sign of sleeping = baby: 1, inept parents: 0.
We just gave up and wrapped her. I can't see I am ever going to get her out of it now.
She isn't rolling yet but it's inevitable so thought I'd get a jump on it. If I knew how dependent she would become on it I never would have wrapped to start with.
Now all i need is for her to stay up babbling all night again and I'll be truly done for 😢
My girls were wrapped up till 15-17mths! I had to use a cot sheet by then. Just kept their arms free. No way I'd stop at 4mths.
Once they were rolling I let out their arms. Then when they were crawling I loosened theirs once asleep so they could move around. It was a fabulous sleep cue. I'd wrap them up for the pram too and as they got older I 'tuck' them into bed.
Once babies naturally lose their startle reflex THEN drop the wrapping. But not till then imo.
