When should I stop swaddling my baby?

You should stop swaddling your baby when they are able to get their hands free and can turn over. We waited until our daughter was almost 5 months, since we wanted to keep her swaddled to make sure she was warm enough in the cold winter months. She could roll over by that point, though we just had to make sure the swaddle was snug enough so she could not get her hands out. If she did, then she would cry.
