When should I wean his swaddle?
Great question – and like many questions about your baby’s sleep and development, there is going to be individual differences for every baby and every family. In general, swaddles help babies sleep until they are about 3 months old. Some babies, though, can safely sleep in a swaddle until they are much older and sleep much better when swaddled. In terms of safety, be sure to wean the swaddle when your baby can roll over or get out of the swaddle at all during sleep. This is to minimize risk of suffocation.
