Jr is five months old and wont sleep without being in a swaddle sack. Will this affect his development? I don't want to slow down his process of crawling. He is definalty growing but will swadlling affect muscle growth? What's every ones thoughts

    I swaddled my son until he was 6-7 months old. It was the only way he would sleep. It took a while to teach him how to sleep on his own...we started with having him sleep I swaddled during nap time and just worked him into it. The biggest help was laying him down before he fell asleep. But he was fine with being swaddled that long.
