When should I stop swaddling my baby?

Created by Leanne Trimm, Modified on Wed, 22 Jun 2022 at 01:30 PM by Leanne Trimm

Summary

Irrespective of which swaddling method you use, you must stop swaddling your baby as soon as he or she starts to show signs of being able to roll over independently. At this time, you must transition your baby out of swaddling into ‘arms free’ sleeping.

Detailed Answer

Your baby’s arms should not be restricted when they are able to roll over, this advice is the same for any form of swaddling you may be using. Around this time, your baby’s startle reflex should have diminished. 


The Swaddle UP 50/50™ is a great way to prepare your baby for the transition from being swaddled to ‘arms free’ independent sleep.
