How can I wean my baby from swaddling?
Weaning may be difficult for many parents and babies, at least for a few nights. To wean, you may try first to stop swaddling at nap time. This will introduce more freedom at a more “controlled” time of day. Night time is more difficult, as everyone is tired and expecting a quiet night. The Convertible Woombie or Grow With Me Swaddles can help. Unsnap the arm snaps so that one arm is free, then when your baby is comfortable with the one arm out they can finally graduate to both arms free by unsnapping both sides. You can also use a larger swaddle allowing more movement and arm freedom allows for re-training so that when baby is ready to sleep arms free there will be an easy transition.
