Irelyn and Evan both hated to be swaddled but Griffin likes it. Just wondering about how long you swaddled your LO for... weeks or months? I guess I just worry about him not being able to sleep without being swaddled if I let it go for too long but I don't really know since I never had to worry about it with the other 2.

With Elizabeth it was at least 6 months. Eventually she stopped liking it. After awhile I think we started to swaddle her with one arm out just to get used to it.

Thank you Natalie (MrsStuartD) for my Beautiful Siggy!!!

The girls liked it for awhile. once they started rolling over they stopped wanting to be swaddled (If I am remembering correctly). I never had to 'wean' them from it, they just decided they were over it.

I just did it tell they didnt mind not being swaddled. I would say tell atleast 3-4 months old. I just around 3 months I think started trying to half swaddle during naps and then slowly we stopped all together

Check out the woombie!! It makes it much easier. Also it helps with transitioning out of swaddled bc you and just zip up just lower half.

Jaz hated it but Noah LOVED it and it was the ONLY way he would sleep till he was 6 months old, i had to find bigger blankets to do it lol as he got older.

I have never had a swaddle baby but people I have heard have had to do it for like 6 months or so. I'd just maybe switch it up so he doesn't NEED it to sleep if it is a concern.

How sweet that he decided to be a swaddler! I want pics of the little guy!

Thanks *Kiliki* for the precious siggy!

Madison and McKenzie liked it in the NICU. McKenzie was over it by the time she came home.

I swaddled both boys so long as they wanted to be. Eventually they just started squirming out of it in there sleep and we just sort of stopped doing it.

Cameron was swaddled for almost a year because he needed it. Honestly Jess you don't need to worry because once they get a little stronger they get their arms out and soon after don't need to be swaddled. If he likes it I would do it until you see he doesn't need it anymore.

Thanks Nicole (MommaDucks) for my new & awesome siggy.
