    Default Transition out of wrap - advice please

    DS is 5mths and just started rolling, so want to transition him out of his Love Me Wrap to a normal sleeping bag. I've started leaving one arm out for his day sleeps and it took him a lot longer to fall asleep, but eventually got there.

    However now trying with both arms out and he just won't go to sleep. He lays there and plays with both hands, his sleeping bag, his comforter (now removed) and babbles away. Today I just left him and after an hour he still wasn't asleep, so I caved and put him back in the wrap - asleep in 3mins.

    So how do I do this? How can I get rid of the wrap without us all losing sleep??!

    What about using a woombie or similar?

    I'm not much help as DS transitioned easily, so that's my only suggestion sorry!

    We did the same as what you are already doing, it did take about a week or so of taking a long time to go to sleep, but he got there.

    with both my DD's id put them in sleeping bag then lightly wrap their arms with a muslin wrap, getting looser so of course they could easily get their arms out if they tried. over a few weeks i loosened arms then went without wrapping arms and had success both times.

    Thank-you, that's what we're using now and it's been great. But I'm now trying to lose the arms altogether as he's just started rolling.

    Hi there

    I also used the 50/50 Love Me wraps and had the same problems as what you have been encountering, and I did just what you did. Probably for the first week, they were played with their dummies/hands, and if it went on for too long then I would put the little arm-piece back on. But the novelty wore off quickly, and within probably a week, both arms were out for all naps and at night.
