My 11 week old can only sleep deeply when she is tightly swaddled. Until what age do you all swaddle?
Charlie loved to be swaddled from birth, he finally quit wanting to be swaddled around 6 months.
After about 2 weeks, my son didn't like his arms being swaddle anymore. About the 3 month mark, he started to kick his blanket until he got his legs free. I ended up getting a sleep sack, becaue he'd keep kicking his blanket off. It was einter time and I was worried he would get cold.

I say do it as long as possible. I swaddled until my babies broke out consistently. It was not until around probably 8 months with my first and a few months with my second. Sleep sacks work well after that. I put them in sleep sacks until at least two.
My oldest loved to be swaddled, I did it until she was 3 months!!
My son's hated it! My first son would refuse to be swaddled after a week and my other son started to hate it at 4 weeks.
My youngest as soon as she turned 6 weeks did not want to be swaddled, she liked the blankets around her legs only!
We only swaddle for the first couple of weeks. It's too warm here in South Florida.
I never did swaddle. My daughter kicked out of it too. She didn't like it. I bought her a sleep sack for daycare but she didn't like that either.
My DS was swaddled for about 8 weeks.
