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.

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

Only about a week with hands wraps. He preferred them out.

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.

About a week or so ish. DS hated it, he was like Houdini from about day 3 and could escape from them in minuets!
