we have been using the miracle blanket since my daughter was 3 weeks old. it works with keeping her hands/arms secure so she doesn't wake herself up. she is now rolling over and scooting like it's her job. she absolutely HATES the swaddle. she has been sleeping in her co-sleeper bassinet attached to our bed. she's outgrowing that. i plan to continue breastfeeding until at least she's one year old or more. she's six months now. what is a reasonable expectation for new sleep pattern?. we are going to have to move her crib into our room or use the pack n play to continue with the co-sleeping. i am not into waking up in the middle of the night to nurse her. i knew the day would come where she would be too active for the swaddle and the co-sleeper. call me lazy for not wanting to wake up and walk to the other side of the house to nurse her at night but it is what it is. i would like some helpful suggestions for anyone out there that swaddled. what did you do to help your baby sleep and stay asleep without the swaddle when they are soooo active? literally my daughter will fall asleep and then roll onto her belly, wake herself up, scream and get pissed off. i need my sleep as much as she does. thanks for any suggestions and sorry this is so long.
