Swaddle update

Well, it wasn't that bad.  After I posted last night that she was already sleeping, she woke up crying about a half hour later.  I let her cry for a little bit and I realized there was no end in sight.  I picked her up and held her just long enough for her to calm down.  I put her back down, she cried for about 20 seconds and was out!

I thought for sure she'd wake herself up every hour, but she didn't (or if she did, she didn't cry)!  She didn't wake up until 5:45 this morning.  She usually doesn't eat until about 8:30 so I tried to hold her again and put her back down, but she was obviously trying to tell me that she was hungry.  Duh, Mommy!

I fed her and she couldn't even keep her eyes open.  So after a diaper change, I put her back down in her crib.  No luck!  I thought maybe she was ready to get up and play?  Nope!  So at this point, with a crying baby and a very sleepy Momma, I unfortunately got the swaddle back out.  She fell right asleep and slept for 3 1/2 more hours.

Maybe she's not ready to stop the swaddling?  Lol, you're all probably thinking I'm absolutely crazy (I think you may be right)!  She just loves it so much and sleeps so well in it.  I know a lot of moms that swaddle much longer than 7 months and our doctor has told us there's nothing wrong with it.  I just don't want her to be restricted from moving or rolling if she wants to.

So, we'll see what tonight brings us I guess...

She doesn't seem bothered by last night's activities at all...

We know how to clap now!
