    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    too old to swaddle

    My daughter is almost 9 months and used to love to be swaddled. She started sleeping through the night at 2 months and stopped around 5 months. I have been racking my brain trying to see what has gone wrong to cause such bad sleep habits now. I could lay her in her crib swaddled and awake and she wouldnt fuss and now she screams when I put her in her crib.I cant believe I never realized it could be the lack of swaddling. She is now crawling and climbing up to things. Do you think it would be too late to try swaddling again?
