I know I'm probably a little behind other mommies but...

We went cold turkey with no swaddle this past weekend and Reagan did great. Actually, she slept better without it! It takes a little longer getting her settled to go to sleep, but she didn't wake up even 1x and STTN from 9:00 - 6:30, ate and then back down to 9:30.

And... she's sleeping in her crib now. She would have slept fine in her crib months ago, but I was selfishly keeping her in my room so I could be closer to her. Last night was her first night sleeping the entire night in her crib - I felt like she was so far away - it was probably harder on me than her!

She's getting to be such a big girl - hahahaha - but what makes me even more sad is now that she's not waking up to eat or sleeping in our room, I don't get to snuggle or even hold her before work in the morning

I'm sure it was harder on you than her. I remember with Kayla, she was in her crib in her room at 2 weeks and she slept fantastic but I'd get up and just look at her a few times a night.

glad it went so well . We still swaddle. I keep thinking we should quit, but i'm afraid LOL! We tried to stop about a month ago, but she kept scratching her face or hitting herself in the face. We were waking up more than normal so we went back to swaddling. Right now she's waking up 1-2 times at night.

We're weaning off the swaddle. He has always loved being swaddled, but seems to do ok without. He has been sleeping all night for a while, but now he wakes himself up. Last night it was 2x but the other nights (we've done about 4) he's woke up once. I go in, turn on his music, and give him his paci. He calms right down. Right now I'm still wrapping him up from the chest down, more for warmth than anything. I know I love to be covered up and he seems to like it. too

Good to hear your little one did so well with it though. It is a little sad though...I got sad tonight seeing that we only have 10 more 2 diapers left LOL...

Thanks ladies!

Wildflower- I was SO scared to b/c she's always loved it. We decided to try it on a Friday night. I also made sure it was a day she was exhausted so passed out and slept hard.

MommaDucks- We had been putting it off too, but since she's sleeping later than we go to work, we would wake her if she was sleeping in our room.

Sara_Ann- sounds like he's doing well weaning from the swaddle! Reagan kicks off her covers, so I ordered a sleep sack - we'll see how that works out.

Peyton still lvoes to be swaddled. Though I'm also still working on her sleeping through the night. She's in her crib until about 1am when she wakes up then I just stick her in bed with me....I'm just so tired it's easier (though probably not the best)....

I'm glad it went well. Sorry you are missing some of the extra cuddle time, but I kind of envy your full night of sleep.
