Re: Breaking swaddle/sleep training 9 month old

Mama knows best! My only point was to take other advice with a grain of salt, not to criticize you.

I was still swaddling my son with one arm out when he was almost two. I used technique described in "The Happiest Baby on the block" and it did work. Or maybe he didn't try too hard. LOL

I totally understand where you're coming from and if she keeps waking at night and is only settled with a feed, then we'll deal, because I'd rather she be soothed than left to cry. I'd just really like to find an alternative method to at least try and see if we can figure something that will work for all of us

I'm not opposed to getting up at night with her, just don't feel like we're using the right method to settle her ATM!

this is what happened with DD. She stopped waking up at night to feed for awhile and then she had a sleep regression and started waking up again.

I wrestled with whether I should feed her or find another way to get her down. It's not an easy decision and I often wonder if I was wrong. but since she was and remains a 90-100th percentile child, I guess I certainly didn't stunt her growth!

My gut told me a ton of things, but ultimately, I decided she was waking up because of the issues related to her regression/age and not because she suddenly changed her mind about eating at night.

you have to do what you believe is right for your child.
