Do you swaddle your baby?
I wish we didn't have to, but he flails and writhes about so much that it's almost painful to watch. I try to only swaddle when he's going down for the night, but sometimes I'll do it for a nap if he is really tired and going crazy.
I'm wondering when we will be able to wean him off the swaddling. Right now he still startles himself awake as he is falling asleep or in light sleep and will then start kicking and punching, clawing at his face and pulling his hair. I don't really see another solution besides wrapping him up tight.
