How long did you all swaddle your children for?  My son, Drake, is 3 1/2 months old and I still swaddle him as I find he generally sleeps better.  I know I won't be able to do it for too much longer, as he's getting big.  But I was curious as to how long you all swaddled for.

And, so it isn't just text...

If he likes it, go with it.

Liam and Sean both hated it, unfortunately, because it's so cute.

I love the little burrito look.

I stopped swaddling, and I'm not really sure why. Well, I kidna know why. My littl eone is hyper and is constantly kicking and punching, even in his sleep, so he got a little annoyed being swaddled.

Drake kicks and punches too if he's not swaddled. And we co-sleep, which means sometimes I'm at the other end of his fists & feet. Which is one of the reasons why I still swaddle.

He'll let you know when it's no longer swaddling time! As long as he's happy, keep doing it.

Never, as it has never been necessary.

I never swaddled. My kids always slept spread out in the shape of an "X". I had to put heavy sleepers on them because they wouldn't even tolerate a blanket.

He is super cute. My daughter was a kicker, so she only let us swaddle her until about 3 months. My son is a preemie, and we are still swaddling him. He is 3 months old (1 month-almost, adjusted). I hope he continues with being swaddled. So far, he seems to love it
