My 3 month old DS loves being swaddled. When he's fussy for "no reason" I know he just wants to be swaddled. The problem is, he gets SOOOO HOT. He will ONLY sleep through the night if he is swaddled tightly - if he gets loose, he wakes up. Also, his naps are no more than 10 or 15 minutes if he is not properly swaddled. I have been trying to wean him from it because I am so worried about how much heat he exerts, and the pediatrician's nurse said I don't have to worry about how hot he gets.....BUT I AM STILL WORRIED! I only put a diaper on him (no clothing at all) when I swaddle him. and I keep a small fan going in his nursery at nighttime... is there anyone else with this issue? What else can I do to keep him cool? Or am I truly worrying for no reason?
