Help! I have a three month old baby who is used to being swaddled. Lately, she is breaking out from the swaddle and having a difficult time sleeping. What can I do?

  • a good transition could be just wrapped in a recieving blanket. not too tight but not so itll fall off alot. either that or lay with him/her. thats a difficult transition and age. good luck!

  • u swaddle with just a blanket or receiving blanket? if so what about buying a swaddler from the stores that Velcro closed or a halo sleep sack.

  • My daughter was strong, but the MIracle Blanket (available on-line) held her in. The SwaddleMe blankets from Babies R Us with velcro worked pretty well, too, and those can be used for bigger babies as well. I swaddled our girls until 6 months and they slept amazingly well. So I wouldn't transition out of it yet, at least until you've tried one of these blankets.

  • Get a miracle blanket. They are amazing and work so well. My DD is 15 weeks and only just strong enough to move her arms up. So I guess she is kinda weaning herself off it... Dont give up

  • That's why I never used a loose blanket to swaddle! I was terrified of my baby breaking out of it and smothering. Try the Halo SleepSack Swaddle product. This is the brand they're using in hospitals now. When your baby outgrows swaddling, you can move onto the regular Halo SleepSack.
