  • Not sure, but I never understand why people are concerned with getting their baby out of those. You don't have to swaddle his arms in, and is the sack so tight he can't move is legs? 4 months and rolling over?! You're going to be a busy momma:) That would scare the crap out of me too. GL

  • Not sure what a halo sack is...But I would just start putting him in pj's and hope for the best.

  • :) Its pretty much a cotton bag or sack with velcro that holds the "swaddle" all night long

  • Ahh.. okay. No wonder I didn't know. My dd hated being swaddled. She had to be able to move. Thanks.

  • Can you just swaddle the arms by tying a blanket around his shoulders?

  • My son would only sleep on his tummy

  • With the rolling, it is definitely time to stop! We weaned gradually - one arm out then both, then sleepsack. The Halo ones work really well to safely wrap with one or both arms out, and you could have him sleep with just his belly wrapped (both arms out) for as long as he needs it. We switched to the halo sleepsacks a few nights later, and he did great with the transition. I found them to provide some confinement, as well as replace the sleep que swaddling had become. And it kept him warm all night because he couldn't kick it off.
