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 don't think swaddling will affect their muscle growth but there does come a time when they need to learn to sleep without one. For us when my daughter could roll and she started breaking out of it we stopped doing it. You could try gradually, swaddle just his bottom half and leave his arms out and go slowly from there.
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.
We've been swaddling my Son to sleep since we brought him home from the Hospital. He is now 9 months old. LOL..I dread to think when we stop ;)
