My first two babies were not swaddled… I suffered not swaddling them so this time around I chose to. My question is how do I unswaddle my daughter? Cold turkey? One arm in one out? She is just shy of six months. Opinions and advice greatly appreciated! ????

Ask your question
  • If she’s still happily sleeping when swaddled, why would you want to unswaddle her? Do it for as long as she likes it, she’ll let you know when she’s had enough

  • Thanks I think ongoing to need it! Maybe I should just give it a go during the day time like you did. Guess I’ll iust have to start at the beginning and go from there haha

  • We did one arm in and one out during the day for two days (in the ones where the arms can zip off) but it hardly made a difference so then I just went to both arms out and he did startle a few times but adjusted quicker than I expected! Good luck :)
