Re: How long did you swaddle?

We swaddled until maybe 6 weeks? He kicked off the blanket otherwise.

My 2 year old still LOVES being swaddled.
He was a big baby so I couldn't successfully swaddle him for long...plus it got in the 100's+ a month after he was born. But, now before bed he will bring me his fleece toddler blanket to wrap him in. He even hums the song I use to hum to him when I would swaddle and rock him.

Re: How long did you swaddle?

dd loved it! we did until about 10 months old, then I was tired of swaddling and bopping her butt to go to sleep...
ds didn't care for it, so only a few weeks i think

My first hated to be swaddled so he never was.

DD liked it at first but became indifferent around 5 weeks so we just put her in a grobag at night because our house is cold.

Until she started wriggling her arms free... We had to 'wean' her off of it, because she liked being swaddled/associated it with bedtime, but she always got her arms free ANYWAY and just seemed like by morning she wanted to be out...

We swaddled until ds was 16 months. I only stopped because he was to big for his swaddling blanket.

Re: How long did you swaddle?

DS was closer to 10-11 months, and DD was about 6-7 months. That was when we stopped doing a full-on swaddle with their arms in; technically my DD is still swaddled (at 2 years old) for her naps). She likes being wrapped up in her blanket before we nurse down for naps.

Neither of my kids have had hip problems - I think the problems arise when they are contantly swaddled, or swaddled very tightly.

Re: How long did you swaddle?

My DD went from loving the swaddle to hating it instantlya t 9 weeks. She used to calm down when she saw it and all of the sudden, she was pushing against it and screaming until we took her out of it. She rolled over the next week and has slept on her stomach since then so I guess the swaddle was hindering her from sleeping how she wanted ha.
