DD2 sleeps best when swaddled even now at 6 months. The issue is that she fights the swaddle. If I can get her tightly wrapped after she is deeply asleep she will sleep for most of the night. If I don't catch her at the right time or get it tight enough she busts out and has a horrible night sleep (and so do Mommy and daddy). She half wakes up flailing her arms in the air, takes her paccy out, gets very upset. I also think, based on feeling that her hands and arms get cold when she breakes out of the swaddle. If I lay her in bed with me and hold her arms down she will sleep next to me ok...

I want to get her used to something other than the swaddle but still sleep at night. I found this thing online: and read that some people put the arms inside the sleep sack.

Any other suggestions?
