So our girl (5 months chronological, 3.5 months or so adjusted) has a pretty strong tic when she wants to go to sleep. Her arms and legs flail pretty wildly and seems to keep her up. Why does it seem so? If i do a "manual swaddle" and hold her arms, she slowly slowly calms to sleep. BTW: she doesn't seem to have Moro response any more.
It's warm now, so we use a muslin swaddle cloth. With the give and stretchy in this, she flails out of this pretty easily. She runs hot, so a flannel cloth is way too warm for her. We tried the Miracle Blanket, but with both strength and size she grew out of it. Same with the Nested Bean Zen Swaddle - she's strong enough to break out of the velcro in literally 10 seconds.
So, how do I help calm a flailing freakishly strong girl? or should we be looking at other calming aids?
