DS has nighttime colic so we've tried swaddling a couple of times when he has a bad episode. He looks so miserable, cries, and fights it. I hate the idea because he looks miserable. He somehow manages to free himself after several minutes so I just give up on it. DS also doesn't like sleeping in crib. Swadlling seems to help many babies sleep longer and/or adjust to crib. Maybe I'm not giving it a good try or maybe I'm not doing it right. DH and I can get it pretty snug. We usually swaddle when he is just asleep (for naps) and during colic crying fit. We bought a swaddle me fleece but he's too big for it so we use receiving blankets. Would love some advice or hear some moms' experience.
