Hi all,

DD2 is now 7.5 months old and still in a swaddle sleep bag. I know she is way too old as she has been rolling since 5 months old. She's in a love to dream transition bag and I've just taken the wings off and she will not settle and is rolling onto her side.

Any tips on how to transition out of a swaddle?

Hi there,

I have been there twice as both mine loved the swaddle. I started by making sure that day naps were in a sleeping bag.

I then swaddled with one arm out for a few nights. Then both arms but the swaddle still wrapped round the chest for another few nights.

Both mine took about 5 days to go from a swaddle me to the sleeping bag.

Good luck!

I used a magic merlin sleep suit and it worked well. First few guts were worse than the swaddle but by the end of the first week he was sleeping just as well in it. The transition out of the merlin suit to a sleep sack was easy. We did that a few months later.
