    Default Transitioning from wrapping

    What age did you stop wrapping your bubba? My lo is 4 1/2 months (not rolling yet) and am trialling no wrapping for day sleeps only so far but it's not going well! I'm wondering when I have to bite the bullet and do it overnight too? Am I risking making him dependent on it if I leave it longer? TIA

    My first was a bugger baby and I stopped wrapping him at 4 months cold turkey no problems. My second is a smaller bub and when I tried the cold turkey at 4 months it failed... So I continued to swaddle him, using sleepy wings and a grobag as a transition. Around 5 months hubby accidentally forgot to use the sleepy wings when putting bub to bed and bub slept fine, so we went cold turkey from that point.

    At 4 months there is a sleep regression so there's a chance that sleep problems may be due to that and not stopping the swaddling?

    My boys were only 4-5 weeks I think.

    Dd was around 5 months and we used the love to dream swaddles. I bought the transitional swaddle and within the month she was out of it.

    I've put on love to dream suits and unzipped the bottom zipper up so only arms wrapped. My DD is 7 weeks going ok so far. Good luck. I had same issue with my son.

    Thanks for the advice. Yes maybe it's a general sleep regression but will keep trying some other ideas too :-)
