    We used a zip up swaddle from early on so ds had his arms up, not across his chest, but we started to wean him at 4 months when he started trying to roll back to tummy. Did one arm out no dramas but he wasn't ready for the other til 5.5mths. He was very close to rolling by then so we just took the other arm out and went with it.

    He still sleeps with his arms up beside his face if he is in his back. We now use a sleeping bag for warmth. Although the other night I had washed it and forgot to hang it up and he slept fine without it thankfully (we just put him in two onesies and he has a heater in his room so I knew it wouldn't get below 20 degrees in there).

    Not judging, but once they can roll back to tummy, whether doing it in bed or not, I thought you were meant to stop swaddling for safety reasons?

    That's always puzzled me too. I'm still wrapping up dd2 for sleeps and she is 1 in a couple of weeks. Both my girls love being wrapped up but they need their hands out for a bit.

    I wrap to stop them crawling in the cot. They can easily flop from back to front but they can't crawl or climb.

    The only safety thing I can see is them flipping on their tummy and then not being able to use their arms to hold their heads up.

    But if you have tummy sleepers that point becomes moot quickly.

    I have never thought of it like that. Ds does laps of his cot. Mind you the swaddle we use (the arms zipped off to make a sleeping bag) he can do that in anyway. Guess once he is crawling it will slow him down maybe.

    Thanks for the insight. Have always been curious about that one.

    Never heard if now wrapping because of baby rolling....?
    It's a SIDS guideline- stop wrapping once they can roll onto their tummy during sleep, usually between 4-6 months. I'm surprised they recommended wrapping an eight month old tbh.

    I have heard that if babies are having troubling sleeping to swaddle them. I've heard of 12 month olds being swaddled for sleep training.
    My bub doesn't even try to roll in her sleep or even wen awake in bed. We have a video monitor n I watch her.
    I was just curious as to how long others have swaddled for. I know they say about 4 months but she's happy so I'm leaving it that way for as long as I can.

    My 1st 3 were swaddled to around 8-9 months.. They didn't roll or anything once tucked in, they slept like logs. My 3 month old is starting to bust out as soon as he goes to bed so I doubt he'll be swaddled for much longer..

    That's cool, I was responding to the PP who said she hadn't heard about stopping swaddling once they were rolling and said that tresillian advised her to swaddle an 8 month old. Each to their own, the SIDS guidelines are there as guidelines, not hard and fast rules.

    We gave up on swaddling by about 8 weeks. DS hated it and constantly wiggled out of it.

    We switched to grobags and never looked back.
