Hopefully this is the right forum... My lo has been using the Halo Swaddle Sleepsack,which is a sleepsack with a swaddle piece attached for their arms. She has almost grown out of it and I'm not sure what to do next because they don't make a larger size. (she is 6 months 18 1/2 pounds and it is max size of 18lbs). My question is, do you know of a swaddle system (not a blanket) that is for over 18lbs or do you think we should just go with a sleep sack and try to transition out of the swaddle.
Here is our situation. We swaddle her up and Dh wears her in the Moby till she is sound asleep. He puts her in our sidecarred crib and I try to sleep a bit before she wakes up about 30-60 mins later, at which point I scoot her over to me and nurse her sidelying through the night. She really likes to sleep snuggled and confined (all her naps are in a baby carrier) and I am pretty sure the swaddle is keeping her from waking automatically during that initial part when we put her in the crib. I value this 30 mins of private bed time so I can read or just stretch out from the day's work. Typically at some point in the early morning she starts to fuss and wiggle and I take her arms out of the swaddle.
Appreciate any tips or advice!
