Is this just for moms who actually swaddled? If so, ignore this....
I never really swaddled at all after leaving the hospital...maybe 1 or 2 times to try to calm him down, but that's it.
I do want to add that YS will get it eventually and you definitely won't be swaddling a toddler! :D
LO will be 4 months on 7/29 and tonight we have him in just a wearable blanket, sleeveless, so no swaddle... please dear God let him stay asleep... the swaddle sacks just became pointless because he was getting his arms out within 10 minutes.
cece2682:Am I the only one using swaddle me with arms out?? Haha he has always hated his arms swaddled but likes his legs swaddled. Seems to work for us so I'm sticking with it lol anyone else use it that way though?
KLL22:I tried last week at 13 weeks to stop swaddling and it was a nightmare!! So, I gave in and again am swaddling. I think I'll try again in a few weeks when I transition to the crib because I won't be getting any sleep anyway!nbsp;
I wrap swaddle in Aden + Anais wraps (not the zipped thing). I also still use the hospital blankets (that I freaking love), to wrap him in a swaddle. I used to use a swaddleme, but it looked like a straight jacket and he could move his legs too much.
I wrap him very tight.
When he starts rolling, I will cold turkey it.
This past weekend we stopped. He used to STTN up to 11 hours but not since I went back to work July 1st. He went down to waking up 1-2 x. Now he wakes up one extra time so 2-3x night.
I know he'd sleep longer with it but i don't want him to depend on it either. I'm torn about putting it back on.
