In what seemed like a blink of an eye, baby W is six months! These months have been filled with so much fun, love, and chaos of course. Sleep hasn't always been as plentiful, though it didn't seem to bother me as much this time around. I guess I knew what to expect and I know these phases are fleeting.
The last few months we've been transitioning baby W out of swaddles into sleep sacks (when we sensed he was getting closer to rolling over) and out of our beloved Bassinest and into the crib in his own room. It's funny, my older boys moved to their own rooms at two and three months, but with this guy it was around four months. I think because he was our smallest guy (born a month early) and because there's something about knowing it's our last and wanting to slow down time. While I'm happy we've worked our way towards more restful nights, its all so bittersweet.
We started off gradually with just naps in the crib and the Bassinest at night, but then at about four months we made the big move. I am happy to report that now at six months W is for the most part sleeping through the night (some nights doing 7pm-7am) hooray!
At three months baby W was getting stronger and looking like he wanted to roll, so we knew it was time to be done with swaddling (which he loved). I found the HALO® SleepSack® Swaddle perfect for transitioning allowing us to gradually go from arms tucked, hands to face and then arms out getting ready for Halo® SleepSack® wearable blanket We used the cotton muslin SleepSack Swaddle; here's what we love about it:
