Re: Some questions

My DD is 7 months old and is just now starting to outgrow the need to be swaddled. I was a little worried about how I was going to break this habit. I tried a few times and it was miserable, she would NOT go to sleep, no matter how tired she was. For awhile I was afraid I was going to have a 3 year old that still needed to be swaddled! But we just kept trying. Every week or so we would try to put her to sleep without being swaddled. We would do our bedtime routine minus the swaddling and then just see what happened. If she started screaming, we would cuddle her and calm her down, swaddle, and then bed. Finally, this weekend dad got her to sleep without swaddling!!!

I'm sure your DS will outgrow it in his own time as well. Good luck to you!
