Our 9-month old babe has been having a really hard time going to sleep at bed time recently. Although she has not been swaddled for about three months, my husband decided to swaddle her up last night after an hour and a half of complaining and crying. She complained for a few minutes and then fell asleep. Not only that but she slept the entire night swaddled and slept 30 minutes longer than she has lately.
I am surprised that swaddling worked for our 9-month old! Maybe that’s just what she needed – a little comforting swaddle to help get her through the night. Or maybe she was just tired enough to finally fall asleep. I guess we’ll never know.
