    Default Transitioning bubs from swaddle to sleeping bag- how long did it take?

    I want to transition my 4 month old from his Love to dream swaddle to a sleeping bag for night time. I know some people take one arm out first then other but I feel like going cold turkey.
    My question is how long did it take for your baby to adjust to this change?
    DS already uses sleeping bag for day sleeps. I am just worried his night sleep will regress as he is currently sleeping all night.

    Could you try using the love to dream 50/50?
    It allows them to have one or both arms free.

    Or if day sleeps in a sleeping bag have been fine for several weeks just go cold turkey?

    This is the swaddle with the unzippable arms isn't it?
    That's what I was going to suggest.

    My dd sleeps badly anyway... but it only toom 2-3 nights cold turkey without a swaddle to get her to used to it. It wasnt nearly as bad as I thought. But I didnt do it til she was about 8 months old.

    Cold turkey here. One night one arm out, second night both out. Hasn't used love to dream since. However, I have been putting her in a sleeping bag but tucking her in with a light sheet as I'm worried she'll roll over during the night. Tonight is first night not tucked in and she's sleeping beautifully. Mummy however has been checking on her all night. 😁😁😁

    Haha could have written this myself!! My 4 month old DS is currently using love to dream at night (day time is just in clothes with his blankie) I bought a love to dream 50/50 a week ago and have been sleeping him in that for now. On the next warm night I'm going to try him one arm out for 2-3 nights then both arms out. He also sleeps through the night so really don't want to upset that :/

    Thanks ladies!
    I had just bought him a larger size of the love to dream swaddle Lite. The reason I didn't buy 50/50 was because the cotton was thicker. My DS has eczema and is a hot sweaty baby - but now he is waking up every morning with red skin under his chin and neck so I think the high neckline of the swaddle is irritating the eczema.
    I can live with 2-3 night of adjusting though. Sometimes mulling over it is worse than actually doing it!
