I was given a swaddle pod at my baby shower, and I have found it to be a godsend. At first it seemed a little odd to be basically 'straight jacketing' my child, but he settles down straight away with it and it stops him waking himself by flinging his little arms around and seems to offer him a lot of comfort (similar to me holding him).
Just type swaddle into mothercare to have a look. I really don't agree with letting a baby 'cry it out' I did that with my first child (young mum, no clue, took advice from health visitor) and it made me very unhappy!)
Swaddling did help my little girl too. Although she's now almost 8 months and will not entertain the idea! I'm now totally happy with just letting her sleep how she wants and I will never EVER let her cry it out. If people are considering it who are reading this, please do some research first so called experts like Gina Ford are doing our relationships with our children no favours what-so-ever.
I found this articel really interesting. I have two kids, one boy one girl. Although I breastfed my kids have both slept through from around 3 months old. It makes such a difference as you need all the sleep you can get to tackle what they throw at you during the day.
