Re: Until what age do you swaddle?

Ds is 3 weeks old and I rarely swaddle. He loves to squirm and kick his legs and is not happy being tightly swaddled. Now my oldest loved being swaddled and even at 12 years old I find him in the morning wrapped up in his comforter on his bed.

3mo when Dd could role from her back to her belly but couldn't yet get back over. We used the swaddlemees and just stopped swaddling cold turkey.

You know, it occurs to me that my DS, who didn't like to be swaddled except on rare occasions, gave me a hard time last night about tucking him in "too tight" and often sleeps outside the blankets unless it's really cold.

I watch a 3 month old who I cannot get to sleep without swaddling. She'll wake up in 15-20minutes without it and NOT go back to sleep. My kids NEVER liked being swaddled.

Thank you all for answers! It seems that I have to try the loose swaddling for a couple more nights and then try without. I'm too chicken to stop it cold turkey! I

We swaddled until maybe 3 months. Then at 4 months we hit a sleep regression, and he was swaddled again until 10 or 11 months. We just did what worked for him.

We used the Swaddle Me type sacks until 3-4 months but then used the sleepsacks until 3 years!

Re: Until what age do you swaddle?

I might be wrong, but I think the recommendation is to stop swaddling when they can roll over by themselves. I would look up the SIDS information on that one.

I swaddled until 3 months and then he was just swaddled with his arms out. Now he's in a sleep sack. He loves that thing!!
