    Default Tips for transitioning baby out of swaddle

    Ds can now roll so we need to transition him out of his swaddle up bag (as ive watched him roll in it & he struggles to push himself up when in it).

    He likes the swaddle up bags so we bought one of the 50/50 ones & zipped one arm off this morning.

    He will not go to sleep. Excluding feeds, dh has been trying to get him down since 6.30 this morning & he every time he goes to sleep he just wakes up again screaming a short time later. Hes exhausted & has basically screamed all morning.

    Any ideas for what we can do?

    Do you put a sheet over the top as well? Not SIDS recommended I don't think but you could watch him and might make him feel more secure until he's used to it? Just an idea, I don't think I had a problem transitioning.

    No we dont use a sheet, too hot for that today anyway. He moves so much in his sleep that it wouldnt be safe either

    we had to transition my DS too and it was really hard I found! We did one arm in one out for a week and it took quite a while to get him ok with it. I had a few very sleepless nights I hear you!!! But just had to persist and we did get there. Just persist if you can is my advice. It's not much fun :-(

    I think you just need to persevere - he will eventually get it and start to sleep with one arm out and then you can progress to both out. Is he in a Love to dream?

    Try sleepy wings (our DD pretty much went cold turkey but lots of friends swear by them!) www.sleepywings.com.au :-)
