Does anyone else have a kid that won't sleep thru the night unless they are wrapped? Mine are 6 months!!!

They are 6 mo old and unless they are swaddled, they won't sleep through the night. I don't want them to be 2 and néed to be wrapped. Does anyone else Have this problem? I feed burp and change them before bed. We even haVe a schedule. Bath at 7 bed at 8. When they are wrapped they fall asleep within 2 minutes bc they are used to it.

  • we had a baby straight jacket basically to get my son to sleep - my little houdeenie stopped staying in by 5 months I think though - they do grow out of it on their own though, they won't be two when they don't need it, it will happen naturally when you end up going in there and they just need it to fall asleep, then you go to get them and they have both arms out and then eventually just stop needing it..

  • My middle son wouldn't sleep unless he was wrapped until he was 8 months old. We literally had to take a blanket, the swaddling ones were too small, and roll him up in it AND we had to leave his right arm out because he liked to suck that thumb too, lol. He did grow out of it, and I figured it wasn't hurting him and he slept great like that so I didn't mind doing it for that long.
