    Default When Should I Stop Swaddling My Baby ?

    Hi there,My daughter is 6 months old and the swaddle has been a great tool for my and her sleeping. Now I want to start sleep training her without the swaddle. Without the swaddle, She will quickly go to sleep while nursing but once I take her off the breastfeeding pillow and lay her in the crib She wakes up. Am I picking her up wrong ?Is there any sign which helps me to know the time ?
    Finally, I found 3 Signs tell me the time on :https://theimpressivekids.com/when-t...waddling-baby/

    It's:
    My Baby Wakes Up Multiple Times At Night
    My Baby Starts Rolling While Swaddled
    My Baby Is Starting To Escape The Swaddle More Often

    I swaddled mine for about 8mths.
    When i transitioned out of swaddling i did it slowly.
    I would put them in a sleeping bag and swaddle their torso and arms over the top.
    Every few days id loosen it a bit more. After a few weeks it was gone and they were fine without it

    I stopped swaddling once my DD started to roll over in her sleep, sometimes its best to start with just one arm out of the swaddle and once they are used to that then you can do the other arm.

    I used the ergococoon swaddles which have buttons that open up the arm holes, i would leave them undone so she could also work her arms out on her own while she slept.

    I stopped swaddling once the rolling started. I thought it wasnt safe to keep them swaddled once they were rolling.? !Transitioned with arms out first.

    Stopped swaddling when they started trying to roll in their sleep which wasn't until about 8/9 months. I'd recommend using a sleeping bag under the swaddle first to get her used to that. When mine started rolling in their sleep I just went cold turkey withiut wrapping nd a few sleeps were off but then they were fine. Just sends one clear message. i also added another layer to their arms when they stopped. So legless long sleeve onsie with bonds zippy overtop then sleep bag to right temp.
