    Default To swaddle or not to swaddle...

    Hi all!

    Bub is 3 and 1/2 months old and she can wiggle her way to her side etc. I know swaddling isn't recommended once babies become more mobile but...she's so much calmer and happier when swaddled to sleep. She'll sleep through the night without a peep. Unswaddled, she wakes every 2-3 hours and seems less settled etc. What to do?

    My dd is 6 months and the same. The past couple of months have been hell on earth with her waking every couple of hours before that she slept through 8 to 530 every night without an issue

    Is she rolling? If not I’d keep her swaddled. She might need the comfort. Once they start rolling then it’s time to lose the swaddle but in the meantime take the sleep and use the swaddle.
