    Default Wrapping

    DS is 4 months and I want to stop wrapping him soon but not sure how to do it. We have tried leaving his arms out but he just rubs his face and scratches himself which wakes himself up more.
    He unwraps himself through the night and wakes up.

    Ideas?

    I did it at about 9 months and I went cold turkey and covered him with a muslin wrap and he seemed to be ok. Why do you want to stop wrapping?

    I went from using wrap me up swaddles, to sleepy wings and then into a sleeping bag. I didn't do this until DS was about 5/6 months old though. He adjusted with minimal problems.

    I want to stop because he is starting to roll. Also he gets quite hot in the warmer weather.

    Cold turkey, definitely. It's a good age to do it as they aren't necessarily attached to bring wrapped. Maybe put some cotton gloves on so he doesn't scratch or make sure his nails aren't sharp.

    I just tried cold turkey every few weeks until he slept fine. I think it was about 5 months when he didn't need it. He sleeps in a ergo cocoon with the arms out or a sleeping bag now (7 months).

    Hi ladies.

    I just wanted to update because Im quite excited. We went cold turkey and at night he has slept the best he has ever done and not waking to feed until around 5. Perviously he was waking every 2-3 hours. The days are a bit harder but he is a little champion.

    Thanks for the advice.
