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.

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.
