I have twins that are 3 months old. My son has to be swaddled, and I mean HAS too. He wont sleep or even relax without being in a swaddle. I feel like he is to constricted. He plays on his floor mat for maybe an hour before I have to swaddle him back up again. Is it OK to keep swaddling him? or should I try and break it and if so How? My daughter hates to be swaddled she escapes. lolAnswer Question

Around 4 or 5 months we started swaddling with arms out. My twins continued "needing" to be swaddled for a long time. It became an important part of their bedtime routine. When they became mobile they would drag their blankets to the middle of the floor and try to swaddle themselves or each other when they were getting tired. We didn't completely get rid of the swaddle until sometime after 18 months, and one of my twins hit most milestones early and the other right on time. An hour at a time of awake non-swaddled time is plenty at 3 months. If your babies are both sleeping, you are doing great!

Our son is a little over 2 months old & we had to buy a bigger sleep sack/swaddle to fit him as he will only sleep swaddled, in a swing or chair, or in someone's arms. I figure as long as he is happy sitting there &/or sleeping, all is well! Once he figures out how to roll over, we will figure something else out. Summer will be here soon & him getting too hot may make it easier to get rid of it, I figure :) (my husband, daughter & son all sweat in bed at night, while I freeze!!)
