my daughter is 5 months old and I still have to swaddle her tightly, and keep giving her her binky!?

to get her to go to sleep. She is teething and has almost 4 teeth, and she still has a binky but the main reason I swaddle her is because she will take her binky out and chew on the hard plastic around the nipple! What should I do, I constantly have to go in her room and re-wrap her and put her biny back in the rite way and it's almost like she knows what she'd doing. She gets so cranky when she's over-tired????? What should I do???????

  • My son was swaddled until he was 6 months because of horrible colic. She will outgrow it, don't worry too much, they can't be swaddled forever :) I think the teething tablets the first girl was talking about are Hylands. They are all-natural and worked very well for my son.

  • Did u know its safe and ok to let ur child use a binkie up to the age of 2, b/c it helps to prevent SIDs when they use it while they are sleeping. If they are sucking they are Breathing! My Ped. told me that
