My 9 week old still likes to be tightly wrapped and swaddled. Is it normal for her to still like that? My older 2 kids never liked it from the start so this is new for me.

My baby still loves it and my sister's baby loved it until he was like 6 months old!

OMG, I thought my little girl was the only one. I thought that they would out grow it because my son did after about 8 weeks but my daughter will only sleep if she is tightly swaddled. She is actually 3 months today. It is getting to be a pain because she is so big that I can't get the blanket to stay around her. I have discovered that the thermal blankets are a little bigger and can stretch. I kinda hope it ends soon because I was at the mall the other day and I had to swaddle her up in order for her to fall asleep in the stroller. I guess whatever makes her happy

My first son was swaddled until he was around a year old--we had to buy bigger blankets for him :) My 10 week is looking like he'll be the same way. He falls asleep swaddled and as soon as his little hand gets out he wakes up.

My 3 year-old liked to be swaddled until about 8 months... though she'd break free in the night. She still LOVES covers. My 2 year-old son was never interested in a swaddle, and he usually don't like covers either. My 11 week old daughter still loves a swaddle and doesn't break free. Do what works.

Natalie is 10 weeks and will only sleep at night if she is tightly swaddled in a swaddle blanket that velcroes shut!

I was a nanny recently for a little boy who still liked being swaddled at 6 months. My own baby is not quite three months and still prefers to fall asleep that way. He can get out of it by morning, but it sure helps him to fall asleep.
