My 12 week old daughter has been sleeping through the night since she 2 weeks old. Currently she sleeps from 8pm to 7am without waking, however if I do not wrap her she does not sleep as well. I know I will eventually have to stop wrapping her and I am dredding the day because I'm worried her sleeping will suffer! My midwife said that she has a startle reflex and this will disapear around 4 to 5 months and she should sleep fine without being wrapped after this has happened. Has anyone noticed this startle reflex and when does it normally disapear? Has anyone got adivce on how to and when to ween their baby off being wrapped or know a good way of approaching it?
