    Default Swaddling tips

    Just want to know when everyone stopped swaddling their bubs?
    Dd is 4 months and at sleep school a few weeks back they told me to stop at 4 months incase she rolls. She mostly sleeps on her side and ends up on her back. She has called out a couple of times she's rolled onto tummy and I always have monitor with me to keep an eye on her. I've tried removing swaddle and transitioning to sleeping bag but its not working.She has had medical issues from start including severe reflux which is only just under control so I think the swaddling is keeping her feeling secure. Any advice???

    I'm no expert. .my dd is 6 months and still being swaddled. She hasn't rolled from back to tummy yet so I'm not too concerned. I also tried transitioning her at 4 months. .. disaster... and I had a sleep consultant come who said to start swaddling again!!! She's also had severe silent reflux and some other medical issues so we've spent some time in hospital. swaddling makes her feel safe and snuggly I think.
    I think do what feels comfortable. Im considering starting to transition soonish with a day sleep here and there with one arm out.

    Have you tried a 'love to dream swaddle' with arms up? That way if she did accidentally roll onto her tummy she'd still be able to push up and lift her head.
    You can do an angel wrap too with a muslin. Just google, I'm sure you'll find some how too's. that's a good transition swaddle. When she does start to roll over pop her arms out.

    Thanks ladies I think I will keep her swaddled for another couple of weeks then try to take a hand out. I do the angel wrap at the moment, Definatley find it better than swaddling her like she's in a straight jacket lol :-)
