My 4 month old still has startle reflex. I recently began crib training , and I am able to get her to go to sleep without a lot of crying in her crib. The thing is she startles awake...I know the reflex is normal and goes at different times for babies but I am not sure how to help her. She can roll over both ways and can even move around a bit. I am afraid to swaddle her because of all her movements. I make sure she's fed, has clean diaper, give a good burping, gas drops, heart best from noise machine, had dishwasher and dryer going at times, pacifier, and I make sure temp is comfortable. She will be in a good sleep and startle awake grabbing at the mattress like she's falling. This is her first week in the crib...each nap and bed time has been the same. Any advice?
