So in the next few weeks I need to stop unswaddling Alex she is getting to big for our swaddle blankets and none of the others hold her. I know I am late in doing this but I wanted to give her face time to heal and this kept her from itching. So right now for naps and and bedtime I swaddle her and take her in her room with blackout curtins and sound machine then I play the music on her crib soother and bounce her to sleep or mostly to sleep (if she lets me) on my exercise ball. She wakes to eat between 1 am and 4 am to eat and i can lay her back down awake and I put her back and she sleeps untill between 5 am and 6:30 and and then she sleeps with me (on a bed in her room) untill around 7- 7:30. 8 if I amnlucky and both her and Elise are still asleep (Elise wakes between 7:45 and 8 am.
Is there any gentle way to do this I have tried tohave other things to signal bed time dark room, sound machine, crib soother music, bouncing on the exercise ball. I try for minimal crying I say minimal because Alex is a very particular baby she still at 9 months cries for a second or two every time she moves in her crib, but I cant think of any gentle way to do it other than keeping to our other routines as much as I can. Any advice is much appriciated.

I wish I had advice, but I don't. It seems like it will just take persistence and time. Maybe transition to a sleep sac? Hugs momma.

Thank you *kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!
