... My little one is 7 wks old and sleeps sooo much better when we swaddle her, but I always feel bad for confining her, because she loves to have her hands free. I was just wondering how long everyone else swaddled their little ones....also, how old is too old to swaddle? ... (9 replies)
... I don't think there is an age that is considered "too old." My son was swaddled until he was 4 months old. One night I went to put him in the swaddle and he clearly did not want it. That was when I knew we didn't need it any longer. I have heard some people using it until their baby was 6 months. ... (9 replies)
... My daughter did not like to be swaddled, in fact when she was just a few days old int he hospital she was flopping around trying to get free and was much more content with her hands and feet out. We only swaddled for the first few weeks and then gave up. ... (9 replies)

... c babies get cranky when they keep waking up and from lack of sleep. Your DD needs her sleep and if swaddling is going to allow her to get it, then keep doing it. Once she gets rid of the startling reflex, she will start to sleep better without the swaddle. ... (9 replies)
... My DD did not tolerate swaddling and would break free even at 1 day old. (9 replies)
... I feel guilty because she doesnt necessarily like it, and often fights it, but it seems to be the only way she can sleep more than an hour at a time. Otherwise her hands always wake her up. ... (9 replies)
... My daughter was born 6 weeks prem, and could not suck and had severe reflux to the point that her esophagus was burned, the only way that she got any comfort was by being swaddled and she was swaddled up until her first birthday,in a single bed sheet, I even had to do it in her pram if we were shopping, she loved it, sure I got stares but bad luck she was happy, your child...

... y daughter is just over 4 months and we just stopped swaddling because she starting crying and fighting it about a week ago. She doesn't sleep as well as she use to but she was obviously ready to have her hands free. I would keep doing it as long as it calms and comforts and stop when it seems to do the opposite. ...

... Youneak, My Ella never liked swaddling either. She also never liked being held like a "baby" if you know what I mean. Craddled in my arms. Hated it and wouldn't sit still for a second in that position. :D (9 replies)
... So we did start to swaddle her really tight and she loved it. Her startle reflex was really bad and her hands would wake her alot. My DH would actually swaddle her and wedge her in the corner of her bassinet to resemble the tightness of the womb and we had a heartbeat bear that we used also. ... (6 replies)

... My son is a month too and I am having the same issues. Only, he sleeps anywhere from an hour to 2 hours. I swaddle him and even though people say not too, I let him sleep in bed with me. He seems to sleep longer that way. ... (10 replies)
... I had my son in a crib from day 1. I never used a bassinett... I wanted him to get used to the crib from the get go. I think it was the best thing I could have done. ... (23 replies)
... As Weepy said, every baby is different, but we also had somewhat of a difficult time getting ds to sleep on his own when he was very young and I think part of it was because he was so little and was used to being warm inside of me. ... (12 replies)

... I use 'Similac Isomil Soy' and it has helped my fussy baby! I also learned to 'swaddle' her and then put her in the 'baby papasan' to settle down and sleep. ... (6 replies)

... it's pretty useless. Sounds the same as your youngest, my ds gets into an angry screaming fit when I know that he is tired and wants to go to sleep but fights it. It's as if he knows that he should be sleeping, and wants to sleep, but just can't get there. ... (5 replies)
