    Give it some time he will learn to deal with not being swaddled. Hope you are able to nap for a bit today.

    Another restless night.... Wondering if it is teething aswell.... Should I give him Panadol? We are co-sleeping and his cot is already besides our bed. He can sleep if I put him in our bed and I sleep besides him... He takes his naps in our bed, and I sometime take the nap with him so he would sleep longer. But I don't want this to be a habit for his night time sleep.

    Panadol is only to use in case of fever, it's a medicine, and shouldn't be used to make your baby sleep. If your baby is really teething, maybe you can ask your pedetrician something to release the pain.

    Well, I wasn't thinking about making him to sleep, but to release the discomfort. But yes, better ask the doctor. I don't know how much he should take anyway....

    I swaddled my babies a long time too, because they slept better. I did it until it was summer and too hot. There is nothing wrong with it and it is not going to inhibit their develepment, if you are only doing it for sleep. Sure that could happen if you swaddle them day and night, but I doubt that is what you are doing. If you are ready to wean from swaddling, what I did was swaddle with one arm out only to start with, and then had both arms out. Also as I stopped swaddling I found he slept on his stomach more, so that lessened the startling yourself awake problem.

    Just about the teething discomfort... Watson's/Mannings sell teething gel you can rub on their gums to lessen discomfort.

    I hope nighttime sleep gets better!

    Totally agree with Capital - if you have a nervous/jumpy baby like my first was, keep swaddling at night. We swaddled for 8 mths, graduating towards one arm free, then two. My second and third babies didn't need to be swaddled for so long - only about 4-6wks.
    Plenty of time during the day for development. Don't you worry.

    Keep doing what works for you and your baby.
