    Default Ditching the swaddle

    You ladies are braver then I. DS 8 months is still ltd swaddled! I tried the 50/50. Biggest fail. He just flailed his arm around for half an hour before I have in. I haven't had the nerve to try again since. He really is too old for them now but he is addicted! Sick of people giving me grief for it so I really think I've got to try again.

    @HeavenBlue, don't worry about what other people say or think. Like I said earlier in this thread DS was wrapped until he was 10 months old or something like that.. I was using a cot sheet lol. If your DS is happy and sleeping who cares! DD is very much like her big brother and honestly if I have to continue you wrapping her then I will..

    How did you know he was ready to stop being swaddled?

    I wrapped DD in a ltd swaddle for ages! I think it must have been around 1yo. DS is 4.5mo and I have no plans to stop any time soon! We're finally getting a good thing going with his sleep, I ain't messing with it!!!

    I started by leaving the same arm out & putting the flannel in her hand so when the second arm came out she was used to clutching something with her other hand.
    Good plan going back to just one arm out, doesn't matter if it takes a bit longer!
    We had a few false starts where I did one arm out - she just would not go to sleep, arm flapping all over the place so I caved & swaddled her again, then tried again a couple of weeks later.
    Each baby is different I guess you just have to give it a try & not stress if bub's not ready to do without just yet!

    Thats it hey... if your LO is sleeping and happy then stay swaddling I say, bub is obviously most comfortable that way and most importantly mums get to sleep

    I've started a couple of threads about this very subject. While I did receive responses and advice, I've found this thread the most helpful. For instance, nobody ever said that if the 50/50 was a failure, then try again a few weeks later!!

    An I'm also loving the support on having an older infant swaddled! Thanks ladies

    I'm glad I'm not the only one this thread has helped! ☺️

    Last night was our third swaddle free night. Dd slept marginally better than the night before which has given me just enough hope to keep going. She has to get the hang of it eventually right?

    Oh for sure. Just not without giving us a hard time first! Makes me wonder why I started swaddling him again when he was out of them at 1 or 2 weeks old. I really wish I could remember. Damn you hazy newborn days! I'm sure I had a reason but now I'm cursing it *shakes fist*
