When to stop swaddling? My 6 wk old has never liked her arms being swaddled but we did it anyways because she slept longer that way. Without swaddle she would startle herself awake. The last couple days she was been waking up more I think trying to get out of it and I'm thinking its time to try sleeping without it? When did other moms stop?

Mine didn't like his arms being swaddled so I kept his arms out. I stopped doing it around 7 weeks or so.

My son was only swaddled for 2 weeks. He absolutely hates it. He would constantly wake up because he couldn't move. He started sleeping through the night when I stopped. And he was rolling my 2 months old :-)

My lo 15 weeks and is doing the same. He will def wake more u swaddled. I swaddled my oldest until he was 6 months then we put him in a zipadee-zip. U can google them and get them off their website. We used one until he was 16 months. And it reassured me he wasn't cold in the colder months so I kept a blanket out longer.

My little one is 3 months and won't sleep otherwise, although I have started this week trying not to swaddle him but he wakes up more often now.

I stop swaddling about that time. He sleeps great because he likes to have his arms out too.

Mine is 16 weeks and we just bought zipdeezip. He sleeps through the night and does great naps when swaddled. He doesn't really like and now he is starting to roll. And we try the halo sleep sack and he doesn't sleep well-just plays/moves and eats his hands.

Definitely try a swaddle that has velcro, kind if looks like a baby straight jacket but it works. We stopped at 3 months because our little guy started rolling and trying to roll in his sleep.

We stopped shortly after we got home from the hospital because I didn't want them dependent on it in order to sleep

We stopped at 3 weeks because I could tell that my son wanted some space to move his arms and legs. Halo makes sleeping sacks if you want to try that next.
