Kerrigan slept in her own crib all night last night...HOORAY!!!! She did her 4:00 ritual wake up, but I went in and rocked her and she fell back asleep until about 7. Great news, right?
It really is, but when I went in at 4, there were 2 problems that needed to be addressed immediately: 1. Her legs were stuck in between the bars of her crib and 2. She had broken free of her swaddling and it was wrapped around her neck- YIKES!
Problem 1 was easily solved today...I went and bought bumpers today at Target. Unfortunately the only bumpers they had were really ugly, but they will get the job done, so legs in between slates... FIXED.
Problem 2, not so easy. Apparently she is tired of being swaddled, every night she manages to escapes the supposedly inescapable Miracle Blanket. Really, I think her swaddling days are over, however...
I don't know how to de-swaddlize my child. She is still very wiggly and flaily when she sleeps if she isn't swaddled. Has anyone faced this situation where the baby still kind of needs to be swaddled but doesn't want to be?
Do I just stop swaddling her and hope that she adjusts? Do I just kind of swaddle her so she can break free without waking up because of the struggle to get out?
Any advice would be great!
