Carter turned 3 months on December 1st. He has always been a fussier baby, but that was partially due to reflux, which is now being treated. Lately, we've been having trouble getting him to sleep longer than an hour or two at a time. It has gotten to the point where we will let him sleep in his swing or car seat just so we can get a few more hours out of him. The swaddle cloth we used before is too small on him now (he is over 25 inches long and weighs a little over 14 lbs), but that worked for us before. We've tried swaddling him in blankets but he just kicks out of them. I have a feeling that the car seat works because it is somewhat restrictive and makes him feel "safe" and cozy. I can't figure out a way to get the same effect from anything else. ?!?!
