The swaddling transition was not smooth during the day. The first two days she cried herself to sleep at all three naps and it was horrible. Once she was asleep she did great, it was just getting there. The third day she didn't cry at all - but she also didn't sleep. That wasn't good, either, but Abby recovers pretty well from a missed nap. She tends to spend the next day sleeping and making it up. So the fourth day was pretty good. Today was day five and we are back to where we were a week ago - 3 naps a day, about 1 1/2 hours each. Whew!
Aaron was swaddled a little longer than Abby but I was having trouble swaddling her. She is a restless sleeper and she would kick her legs out of her swaddle and that would make her really, really mad. She wouldn't go to sleep until you reswaddled her. On Sunday I reswaddled her four times during one nap and I was done. I figured the sleep sack would keep her legs contained and she just had to get used to having her arms out.
