No, not for us. Beccasweet has questions. Little girl is 6 months. She sleeps the longest when swaddled. They Cosleep at night which is working well for them right now, but now that they're moving to a place longer than a heartbeat she wants to transition to the crib for at least part of the night and for naps. She's wondering how long this huge board of moms swaddled and if any swaddled past 6 months. She's concerned about her LO rolling in the crib while swaddled. Arms out swaddle (like sleep sacks too) don't help at all with sleep (as in up after 20 minutes!). Do you keep the baby from rolling or let them be and reroll or what?
We didn't swaddle past a few weeks so I'm not much use to her with this one!
We swaddled and then quit at around 4 months and then started up again around 7 months. I just swaddled her tight and put her down in the crib. When swaddled it was much harder for her to roll and since she was usually out within a few minutes it wasn't and issue. Around 9 months she started getting out of the swaddle so we phased out after that but still used it occasionally to get her to fall asleep.
I don't swaddle Kole. The few times I've tried it he hated it and he usually sleeps great, so no need.
We swaddled for about 3 months. When she started rolling around more we went to the sleep sacks and that seemed to work and then at about 5 mo she just decided she didn't like it anymore.
My sneaky ninja babies broke out of the swaddles quickly/ needed their arms out to play with their hands in their mouths. Could she put rolled up receiving blankets on either side of dd below face level of course to see if that'd help? Maybe try it during a time she could monitor her first? Good luck!
Me! Me! OMG I thought we were going to be stuck swaddling her when she was in college...it was seriously at least 9 or 10 months before we finally weaned off it. I don't recall ever having any issues with rolling, though. I think she mostly just didn't at that point anyway, and even if she did, by then they're plenty strong to be safe sleeping in whatever position they want. I'd just keep the crib totally free of pillows and blankets other than the swaddling blanket, and she should be fine.
Oh wait, one more thought--we didn't do this with Addy but I remember with my little brother (I was 14 when he was born, so I remember well!) we used to stuff a little pillow inside his shirt to keep him from rolling on his belly...that might work for her if she's really concerned about it!
We swaddled Teagan until she was about 6 months. We only stopped because we (to our terror) left her swaddler in my Dad's trailer after camping! We probably would have swaddled longer but going cold turkey wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. Teagan wasn't much of an escape artist in her sleep but she would pop an arm out here or there. We mostly co-slept but started transitioning from the co-sleeper to her crib around the time we stopped swaddling. We just kept the crib free of blankets and pillows. Tell her to just play it by ear. There's nothing wrong with swaddling beyond 6 months. Just do what works to keep the kid asleep!
