    This. My DS is now 3 and still kicks his covers off at night. When he was a newbie he used to go star shaped every time I went near him with a wrap, so I gave up in the end.

    This. The purpose of wrapping babies is because reminds them of being in the womb and provides a comfortable or familiar sleeping environment.

    It can also ensure they don't wake themselves up with the startle reflex. So if bubs sleeps well and is happy unwrapped and the startle reflex doesn't wake him, then no need to swaddle.

    The same can be said for most parenting 'rules'. Certain things are rules as they generally work for most babies, but if something you do in any respect, doesn't work, try something else.
