How to wean my baby from swaddling

my son is 5 months old and only gets through the night if swaddled. Well, he's getting too big for his swaddle blankets & just rolled over for the first time so it's time to stop swaddling. I tried putting him to bed without anything and no one got any sleep. Any advice is much appreciated!!

    Interesting. I never thought to ween my baby from swaddling.. But I guess you're right.. It's the security they feel when swaddled, so you have to try and mimic it a bit.. I would still swaddle as much as you can.. loosely... or put blankets around the baby... Use larger blanket to swaddle lightly and go from there.
