Swaddling with Older Newborns (8 weeks and older)
We get questions about swaddle safety with older newborns all the time. Would you check out the blog Should I Swaddle my Baby?. It talks all about the safety components. You'll see in that blog that the AAP says that it's safe for babies to be swaddled until they show signs of rolling from back to belly. We recommend following that exact guideline: swaddle for sleep until baby is showing signs of rolling from back to belly!
Does your baby hate to be swaddled? Please check out the Will I Ever Sleep Again? newborn class. It has turned so many swaddle-haters into swaddle-lovers.
Is your baby already showing signs of rolling back to belly? Then it's time to Transition Out of the Swaddle.
