    DD loved being swaddled, we used a LTD from about 4 weeks (used a blanket before then) until 6 months when I started letting her sleep on her tummy since she'd settle better. No issues with transition that way.

    3.5 months when he was constantly unwrapping himself. It was too long, when we have the next baby I probably won't go past 6-8 weeks before we start using the sleeping bag. We went cold turkey from wrapping into sleeping bags, no LTD or anything as I just thought it would be another thing we would have to wean him off of and more money spent on swaddles/wraps/bags etc. It was hard for 3-4 nights where he pulled out his dummy and woke a a lot but it was all over in under a week.

    We swaddled because dd couldn't sleep unless she was wrapped. I know not every baby is like that but for some people it's a necessity.

    Never . DS hated it from day 1 so I didn't do it although the
    Midwives would wrap him tightly I'd unwrap him and he would stop screaming. Lol

    My babies have all loved to be swaddled. Always a very firm swaddle,they were difficult to settle &keep asleep without one. First baby was around 9 months, i tried to stop it a few times earlier but she was not sleeping well, so we continued. 2nd baby maybe 6-7 months? 3rd baby is still swaddled.

    My little girl wouldn't sleep unless she was wrapped. She just needed the security I guess.

    We swaddled/used a swaddle sleeping bag until she was about 4 months.

    It replicates the closeness and comfort of the womb and so that the startle reflex doesn't wake them.
