Swaddling and the importance of proper sleep and sleep transitions have improved greatly since Anthony was an infant. I did swaddle him almost 11 years ago as recommended and he loved it and slept so will-he still is a great sleeper.
If you are a new parent or caregiver, this 3 Stages of Sleepwear Pathway safer sleep for baby guide is a fantastic article to read…. READ IT HERE!
As noted in the guide, The American Academy of Pediatrics urges parents to stop restraining baby’s arms in a swaddle at three months or when baby shows signs of attempting to roll over, and to start using a wearable blanket. Continuing too long brings a risk of suffocation and many parents admit to swaddling longer than recommended.
See the SwaddleDesigns Transitional Sleepwear for that first transition once baby starts rolling over.
