Who else is still swaddling baby? When are you planning to unswaddle / stop?

We'd like to stop but she keeps on waking herself up (she's a terrible sleeper like her dad) I want to graduate to the Halo sleepsacks but with the eczema and the whole waking herself thing, I'm about to keep her swaddled till high school!!

Jaxon had extremely bad eczema and still does and he had to be swaddled till he was about four months old.

Evan has to be swaddled every now and then, b/c he will still kinda startle awake at night so I swaddle if need be

We stopped around 3 months, because they just weren't into it anymore.

We still swaddle too. She sleeps through the night and I'm afraid she won't if we quit swaddling.

the girls usually have their arms wiggled out by the morning, but i still think they like the consistancy of being wrapped to go to bed. it gets a bit warm here for pj's and a blanket but we make sure its a thin one.

I think we stopped with DS when he was about 4 months because he kept getting his arms out and he could roll - and wanted to roll and sleep on his belly.

We had to stop due to DD getting heat rashes - the A/C is set to 77!!

Now we use the Halo sleepsack and have the fan AND A/C running.... she's one expensive LO

It's gotten better, but I can't wait to see our electric bill....

Still swaddling. Most morning she wiggles loose but I tried to do a one arm swaddle to start weaning her from the blanket and she was not having it so we will be swaddling for a little while longer.

At 6 weeks, DD decided she didn't like being swaddled. She'd wiggle out of the swaddle and end up at the other end of the crib! So it seemed safer (to me) to stop swaddling her.

She still wakes herself up though by flailing her hands and feet.

Clutch - that's my LO too - she'd do some acrobatics and end up diagonal to the crib!!

With the sleepsack - she sleeps ok - still wiggly and what not though.

I've got a Houdini over here. Been busting out of swaddles since about two weeks old. Crazy chicklet...

We still wrap her lower half (love those Aden & Anais muslin blankets!), but very loosely. She's super-close to rolling over and I don't want her to get stuck if she manages in the middle of the night.
