she has to be swaddled and have a soother to sleep. i wouldn't mind the soother if she could put it back in herself (which DS could at that age) but obviously she can't coz she swaddled. she breaks out of the swaddle constantly so i have to reswaddle her and sometimes hold her arm down to get her back to sleep but i've tried loads of times to put her down unswaddled and she just cannot get off to sleep.
i can't think of any way to break the swaddle habit except controlled crying and it's one thing to do this at bedtime but at 1,2,3,4,5am, when she will also be waking DS up, i just don't know if i can face it. am at the end of my tether though, i go to bed at 8.30 just so i can function the next day and DH has started sleeping on the couch so he can get some sleep :(
has anyone ever used a sleep expert? And if so, how does it work? Do they just give you a plan and you follow it or do they start the sleep training? I don't really want to pay €200 for someone to tell me to do controlled crying. Which leads me to my next question, how much do they cost? Any recommendations???
