How can I wean his swaddle?
It’s time to wean his swaddle – what do you do? You can take one of two approaches. One way would be to wean it all at once. In other words, just start putting him down at bedtime without it. Another way is to do it more gradually. Do this by first keeping out one arm for a few nights, then both arms for the next few nights, and then finally removing the swaddle altogether.
With all change comes some resistance, so he may fuss a bit as he is getting used to it. Everything takes a bit of practice, though. With some consistency he will definitely get used to it. Good luck!
