  • He still likes to be swaddled at 9 mos. He's just too big for his swaddling blankets and is too active to stay in it.

  • Before we even left the hospital. The day after he was born, my son was always wiggling out of his covers.

  • I think he was like 2 months old. He started not sleeping well swaddled and seemed like he wanted to move around more.

  • My DD never wanted to be swaddled. She put up with it the day she was born but only for the nurses. After that, nope! She found her way out.

  • My first baby always wiggled out from the time he was a newborn, I think I didn't know how to swaddle him well though. My second I was a lot better at it and she was swaddled for about 6 1/2 months. My third is 3 1/2 months now and still swaddled.

  • We swaddled our DD until she was about 4 months old and she started rolling onto her tummy while sleeping. With her arms all wrapped up she would panic when she couldn't flip back over. She's 8 months now and we still use the swaddle wraps around her legs. It's a great alternative to a blanket because it still keeps her warm but I don't have to worry about it moving around and getting in her face.
