First off my 3 month old likes to be swaddled still but only while shes sleeping. So when she was 2 months we were doing great. I was swaddling, then nursing, then putting her down awake but drowsy and she fell asleep. Well that slowly merged into swaddling and now nursing her to sleep. So I have to break the nursing to sleep. I have tried to let her cry but I wont let her cry longer then 10-15minutes without going in there to calm her down. Then she can cry again but not longer then 10-15minutes. So my question is do I swaddle her and let her cry? I just want to give her the option to suck her thumb if she wants ( shes not a thumb sucker, refuses a paci ) but if she wanted to soothe herself and she was swaddled would she be able to? If you suggest I don't swaddle her then which habit do I break first, swaddling or nursing to sleep. Or do I take them both away at once. She is being weaned from nursing btw. I also started to watch another baby at home and I can't leave them alone for to long to go and be with her.
