My almost 4 month old has started breaking out of her swaddle at night. We are using the Kiddopotamus Swaddle Me blanket and she was outgrowing the small/medium size. I went in the other night and she had gotten both her feet and one hand out. So, I went to purchase larger swaddles and they aren't tight enough. Any thoughts? Should I try to let her sleep without being swaddled? The only problem is that she wakes up when she gets an arm out. I also have a Halo Sleep Sack, but haven't tried that. Thoughts?Answer Question

Depends on what the baby likes. My 6 day old son is asleep in his bassinet right now with just a receiving blanket over him. He's not swaddled.
My oldest daughter HATED being swaddled once we left the hospital so we never did it unless she was super fussy and then half the time she kicked out of it. My other kids were swaddled until they were around 3-5 months but not all the time.
