    What time does bub get up in the morning? My first thoughts are:

    - far too log between naps. If bub wakes at 11:30am bub needs to be in bed 2 hours later at 1:30pm (not 3).
    - late afternoon nap is too late. If bub is waking at 6pm, bub won't be ready to sleep until 9pm

    Thanks. When you transition them to a sleeping bag, just stop swaddling cold turkey, or gradual?

    It depends to what extent bub relies on the swaddle as a sleep aid. If bub relies heavily on the swaddle I would wean slowly. And 2 weeks - 1 month before you wean introduce bub to a cloth/teddy head comforter and use it at every sleep time regardless of location. My ds1 went cold turkey at 4 months no problem. Ds2 was 5 as a bit and was weaned.
