Just curious if anyone is still swaddling their little one!? My son turned four months this past week. If swaddled and he doesn't houdini his way out of it..he will sleep for 12 hours at night. If not, he is up CONSTANTLY waking himself up with his waving arms and hands. He has a major startle reflex! My question is...has anyone had any luck with weaning their baby off of swaddling? When does t heir startle reflex go away? Do I just give it time and he will get used to not being swaddled? Its getting to be a pain in the butt to swaddle for all naps and nighttime and I also worry that I am not letting him figure out how to keep his arms still...anyway..any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
