    Default Losing the wrap - tell me how you did it!

    So DD is still wrapped for sleep at 6 months as she isn't showing any signs of rolling, but, I think it is time to wean her off it, it's getting too hot and when I go back to work next year 2 days per week her nanna will be looking after her and it would be much easier for nanna to put her to sleep without having to wrap.
    But I am scared! So please tell me your success story in weaning your baby off their wrap. Did you go one arm at a time or cold turkey? And then what should I put her in for sleep? Did you transition to a sleeping bag?
    Thanks!

    I weaned my DD2 off being wrapped at about 6 months by using a cot sheet and wrapping her in an Angel Wrap Swaddling Technique (google it, there is a You Tube clip. My friend put me onto it after it was taught to her at sleep school) and I just loosened the wrap a little bit each time until she no longer needed it and she went into sleeping bags instead.

    Cold turkey with both DS2 & 3. DS2 had no issues at all. Easy as. And DS3 had 2-3 rough days but now sleeps fine without it.

    Same as this. ds is one next week and I've only just got him out of sleepy wings this week. He really loved his arms being held up. Funny boy. Highly recommend sleepy wings.
