I'm wrapping my brains/ trying to find a answer to another difficulty, this time regarding my babies sleep.
My 7 month old baby's sleep has never been great but he did go through a period between 2-4 months where he would sleep good stretches at night. Since then it has become worse to the point that if he gets any sleep at night, I'm lucky.
Yet I think I sort-of know what I've done wrong. I now believe he slept so well because I swaddled him...he liked he's hands being wrapped & I NEVER wrapped his legs tightly. He always had room to move. Now I'm trying to 'wean' him of his arms being wrapped but whenever I leave a hand out or 'loosely' wrap a blanket round him, he can't settle or wakes within miuntes of me putting him down...
However if he sleeps in bed with me, he's happy to sleep with his hands above his head for about 3 hours???
Has anybody else experienced this? I really want to stop 'wrapping' his arms as I know he's going to be able to roll over any day now. I don't mind getting up 2-3 times a night for feeding.
Hope this makes sense
Thanks in advance x
