When and why did you stop swaddling?
How did you do it?
How long did it take for bub to adjust?
Ds2 is 3.5 months and is able to roll from back to front. He doesn't roll at night but I know I need to stop swaddling soon in case he starts. The problem is I've tried for last 2 nights to swaddle him less and he's managed to get an arm free but has slept so badly waking up frequently and unable to go back to sleep without a huge fight so I ended up giving in and re swaddling. Any tips?

Have you tried a love to dream swaddle? They are stretchy enough so that if bub does roll, they can still use their arms and push up.

Like this. This is my cheeky little monkey back when he was still swaddled.

Just to add to that, they then have a 50/50 swaddle that you can eventually unzip the wing off and let one arm free.
They worked a treat for us. My DS was around 8 months before he was both arms free and ready to be that way.

Transitioning out of swaddle
I didn't realise they could do that, it's useful to know. I've been using ergo swaddles at first and keeping his hands up so he wasn't totally wrapped but they are quite thick so need something bit thinner. Then I tried target zip up pouch which is really good as it is quite stretchy so he can still have his arms up but it's quite tight so he likes the comfort.
I think I'll look into the love to dream ones thanks.
By the way your little monkey is very cute!

Thank you! 😊
Yes, I actually took that pic because I walked in to find him rolled over like that.
I think they are the best thing since sliced bread.
They can be a tad expensive so try shopping around the different baby sites for a sale. They have lite ones for summer available too.

I moved my daughter from the love to dream into a zipadee-zip - its dangerous to leave them in a standard love to dream once they can roll. The transition ones just gave her too much freedom all at once. The zipadee zip allows for arm movement etc but still makes them feel secure. Shes in a large now and that will last her until 2 years she loves it.
