  • They have them in large, too.... I'm a little fuzzy on it, but I'm pretty sure I was still swaddling at 4 months too, my son loved it!

  • I bought 1.5 yards of baby printed fleece fabric and made my own. Just sew around the edges. It works really well.

  • My daughter was swaddled until 6 months but eventually I just had to get creative because I could not find swaddlers big enough for her. WIth all the hype over swaddling it seems like they would make bigger ones. Anyway, I took the "wings" from the smaller size and safety pinned them to a bigger sleep sak. That doesn't seem to make much sense when I read it in print but hopefully you know what I am getting at. :)

  • my son was swaddled until about 5 mths, but I never bought a swaddling blanket just used a regular baby blanket and did as the very kind nurses taught me at the hospital...they could swaddle him so snuggly that if you had wanted to you could hold him with just one hand...(obviously not recommended)

    I like the idea of just buying some pretty print fabric and making your own.
