Until what age do you swaddle?

Title says it all.
My LO is almost 4mo and has been in a miracle blanket since first week, last week I swaddled her more loosely. I'm so "excited" to put her in a cute sleep bag, but I don't want to push it.
(During daytime She naps without swaddle up to 2-3 hours)

Out of my three kids, only one liked being swaddled. I'm pretty sure we swaddled him until 6ish months.

We stopped swaddling around 3 months with my DD.

I think I'm the super weird parent here... Ds was swaddled for naps until he was about 6-7mos and we only stopped swaddling him for bedtime about 2 months ago, so 13mos. He broke out instantly at night so I didn't worry about his hips or anything but would not go to sleep without it so I just let it be.

9 months. He outgrew the biggest Velcro swaddle then. He needed it until then to sleep, and without it after weeks of awful fits he had to be sleep trained to learn any new tricks.

Re: Until what age do you swaddle?

When she could roll in it but not break out, so 4-5 months? I'd still do a loose swaddle in a blanket for a while when she was fussy but if she rolled, she could get her arms out.

Not sure for my son but I think about the same, though he was a horrible sleeper and ran very hot and cold about swaddling so it was never used consistently.

I didn't swaddle my 1st, but my 2nd was swaddled until almost 7 months.

Not alone, and I will 2 up you
DS was swaddled until 14 or 15 months in the swaddle me blanket and YDD slept in the Woombie blanket until 2. She just recently turned 2 and I made her switch to the regular sleep sack blanket. She loved that woombie
