I am just wondering if anyones NB sleeps better not wrapped. My DD appears to sleep better unwrapped which is totally different to my DS who I wrapped til he was 11 months old.
I'm also wondering if she sleeps better unwrapped because she was in an isolette for a week totally naked due to jaundice and has just got used to it.

I never wrapped DD, she liked to sleep with her arms straight out to the sides or above her head, seemed silly to me to wrap her in a position that was not comfortable for her.

My DD hated being wrapped! Hated hated hated it. She would fight and fight against the wrap until she was free, and then she would sleep soundly. I gave up even trying to wrap her at about 2 weeks (and only persisted that long cause she was a July baby and we lived in the highlands

My DS hates being wrapped and will grunt and struggle til his arms are free. How ever he does sleep deeper when wrapped and startles himself less so have to rewrap him constantly until he gives up and falls to sleep.

My DD loved being wrapped until about 8 month old!
DS however hated it, so I stopped wrapping him 2 days after he was born.. he slept through the night from 4 days old!!

My DD hated being wrapped, she was out of wraps by the time we left the hospital.
Both my DS were wrapped past 6mths, DS2 is 9.5mths and still has open arm wrapped (trying to wean unsuccessfully)

We stopped wrapping DD on a about her third day at home because we were in the middle of a heatwave. It made no difference to her sleep and by 4 weeks she had started sleeping for 7 or 8 hour stretches at night so I dare anyone else to get a better result from her wrapped. She also liked her little hands above her head and in her mouth so fought the wrap a bit.

DS doesn't like being wrapped much either! He likes his hands up near his head or near his mouth and fights the wrap until he wriggles his little hands free then relaxes.

You know this was a sore point between my sister and I when we both had babies. She never wrapped because "it's cruel" and then had a hide to complain "my babies never sleep". I tried to tell her but she just wouldn't listen (me being the big sister and all). I just hate to think of her poor babies before they were born not being able to stretch out at all.
