    I couldn't get my DS out of being wrapped until he was 10 months old! It became so tricky to get him to stay in the wrap but he just hated being without it.

    4 months with ds1 and 5 months with ds2.

    Babies start to lose the startle reflex from 4 months and when this happens the don't physically *need* to be swaddled to sleep. If an older bub needs swaddling it's because the swaddle has become a sleep aid for them (the longer you swaddle a bub for the harder it is to break the habit).

    When I stopped swaddling ds2 that's when his relationship with his comforter (a small teddy head blanket thing) really took off as he could touch and caress it. Establishing that relationship with his comforter early on was a critical part of helping bub sleep through the night.

    DD was basically unswaddled once we got home from hospital. For DS we used a love to dream swaddle - I think we transitioned out of it around 9 months.

    We had such a hard time with ds, he had a dummy and swaddle, but if his arms were out, he'd pull his dummy out, throw it away and cry like a banshee... So we eventually weaned him off the dummy and then were able to stop wrapping. Happened around the 8 month mark... He's now a thumb sucker though so I'm not sure who won!

    DS is 7 months and has been in a love to dream swaddle since birth. He's still in it and his basinet!

    I've bought a 50/50 LTD so I can start taking 1 arm out, then 2, then he will go in his cot all after we have moved house. 1 change at a time, I think cold turkey would be too stressful for all of us.

    I stopped swaddling dd at around 5 and a half months. She was in an ergobaby swaddle system. The 10 nights after she came out of it were horrible! So many wake ups. She eventually adjusted though.

    We stopped at about 10ish weeks I think, she absolutely hated it and all we'd hear was this grunting where she was angry and trying to get out of it. Even with arms out she hated it. I spent $60 on a 50/50 LTD and she hated that too! We use the gro bags
