Yep, you have to try! Ds doesn't have a bedtime but our routine is based around awake times. He currently is comfortable at 2.5 - 3 hours awake and then bed. So depending on wake up and nap lengths, our day always ends up slightly varied. He really is getting too old for that routine but like I said, attempting the new one was a fail at this point so I'm hoping he will grow out of it given a little more time. He clearly just needs his sleep at this stage.

So I loosely started my new routine however I still swaddled 1 arm in just loosely so she could get out of it easily...
This morning when she woke up at 430 I didn't swaddle her arms in amd I only had to go back once. She slept till 7, had brekky at 730 and half her bottle at 8. She is having a bit of play and will give her the rest shortly then back to bed for a nap. Im going to try a gro bag for this nap! Hopefully it works!

The gro bag lasted 30mins, she woke herself up kicking her legs around and she didn't know what to do with the other arm.. not restricted enough.. so I just swaddled her 1 arm in again and she slept for another 1.5 hours..
I don't think she's ready to be unswaddled as yet.. the rest of the routine so far has been great.

If she's happy swaddled with one arm out then I say leave her! Glad to hear she went back to sleep for you after though!

Thats the plan.. she is a really good day and night sleeper.. I don't know how I got so lucky so I don't think I want to mess with it..

I'm thinking of starting to transition my five month old out of her LTD. Has anyone used grow wings or similar to do this? I'd love to hear how it went before I go out and buy some!
