My DS is 9 weeks old (3 weeks adjusted - he was born at 33w6d). Unlike my DD who hated being swaddled from day 1, he LOVES it. It is the only way he will sleep, and he still sleeps quite a bit (is only up about 4-5 hours total in a 24 hour period). So, my question is, if he is swaddled 19+ hours a day, is that bad for his development? Should I just save the swaddling for night hours? Though then he will be fussy and cranky and not sleep during the day. It's kind of nice that he loves it so much, but I'm concerned it may be too much. Thanks for any insight.
