    Default When did u stop swaddling?

    Hey everyone, DD is 7 months and still swaddled, she's showing now signs of trying to roll in bed so I plan on keeping her swaddled (Ill keep her swaddled till she's a teenager if it helps)!
    Just curious of when others stopped swaddling and what signs bub showed to want to stop?
    Thanks

    DD was about 6mths and simply got too big to swaddle, i was ripping the wraps and blankets trying to get it to fit around her!! so we went straight into a sleeping bag/grow bag. She wasnt rolling or sitting up either at that stage. Once in the grow bag it didnt bother her when she started rolling ect...
    i'll do the same with DS, once he grows out of the swaddle me wrap.

    DS was about 7 months when we had to stop as he kept busting out! I would have kept going if i could, as it was hard for him to get used to not being wrapped, but the wriggle puss had other ideas. So put him in a sleeping bag and didn't have much sleep until he adjusted!

    5mths with both boys. Ds1 in particular used to wriggle a lot, he was much happier being free. Nor did he ever like his arms being tucked in. Ds2 has only just started liking having a rug on him.

    As soon as my girls could roll I stopped. DD2 is 8 months so I use sleeping bags instead

    DD was around 8-9 months when she started getting out of them during the night and not waking due to no longer being wrapped. DS was around 11 months he was getting out of them for a while and still waking up so I got him sleeping bag that had buttons on the sleeve holes to turn it into a swaddle.

    I had to look back at my old photos on Picasa to check! The last ones of her swaddled were around the 3 mth mark. After that she's in Grobag type sleeping bags.

    She was an early roller, and then started commando crawling at around 4.5 mths, so I was worried about her faceplanting if swaddled once she started moving around.

    About day 2.

    lol.

    She didn't like it. She would grunt and groan and struggle so I just didn't do it. Everything worked out fine.

    I'd say she'll be swaddled for a while longer, doesn't even try to move. As soon as the swaddle comes off tho she flat out rolling n crawling!
