swaddle pod - when to stop

I have been swaddling dd (now 16 wks) with arms out in a swaddling blanket. I've gone a bit crazy buying stuff on Ebay and got a 'swaddle pod'. Now I'm worrying that she's too old for swaddle pod, is there a risk of suffocation if she rolls over?

She did start to roll over front to back, but has now stopped, don't know what's going on there. And there have been a few occasions that I've put her on her back, turned round, then turned back to find her on her front.

Advice please!

I also have a swaddle pod (my DS2 is only 7 weeks old) but i would have thought that as long as their arms were out, then it should be OK (I'm no expert though!).

haven't seen or used a swaddle pod. we had a peke moe sleep sack which worked great to for our baby. If you have loose bedding there is more risks. It's best to have them in a sleep sack or the such . good luck!

Hi DS is also 16 weeks and we've just stopped swaddling because of the hot weather. Decided to go cold turkey on the sleeping bags and so far so good - we've got him in a 0.5 tog grobag and he seems to be OK with his hands out and more comfortable because he's not too hot. Maybe worth a try?

DS can't roll but I do find when he's on his front now he always turns his head so there is a little space for him to breathe even if he looks like he's doing a total face-plant wink
