To drop the swaddle, or to NOT drop the swaddle??? We have decided to NOT drop the swaddle quite yet. Avery sleeps really well in her velcro swaddle, but sometimes we have to get up in the middle of the night to re-swaddle her. She will wiggle her arms out of the swaddle and if an arm gets stuck and she can't get it out she gets really frustrated and starts to cry. So, last week I attempted to wean her out of the swaddle during her naps and it did not go so well. Most of her naps are an hour and a half long and she would maybe sleep for a total of 10 minutes in her sleep sack and cry the rest of the time. (That might be why she has been sleeping 11 hours at night, because she was hardly sleeping during the day!) So, after consulting one of my favorite blogs, Chronicles of a Babywise Mom, and talking with Chris, we have decided that Avery isn't quite ready for the sleep sack. Last week was torture trying to get her to nap in the sleep sack so I'm looking forward to the cry-free naps again. I just hope she will continue to sleep well at night! Sleep sack-- we will try you out again another time!!
