To swaddle or not to swaddle, that is the question
Audrey LOVES to be in her swaddle blanket! She won't sleep in her bed unless she's swaddled, well she actually can't GET to sleep. She's almost outgrown her Swaddle Me and receiving blankets seem like they are just not big enough so I have to take another blanket on top of the one already on her and tuck real tight. As you all know, the weather is super ridiculously hot lately and she's going to toast if I keep bundling her up so tight! She usually wakes up so sweaty, poor girl! Any suggestions? When is it a good age to try and stop swaddling, is she still too young? She sleeps fine anywhere else, in a bouncy chair, her car seat, but lying flat unwrapped she becomes restless or wakes up from her arms moving and startling her. Any helpful advice would be much appreciated! More pictures soon! Happy Summer!
