How long to swaddle baby

We stopped swaddling around four or five months. It was becoming a big battle to actually swaddle her to begin with, she was breaking the swaddles of velcro swaddlers regularly, and we started to transition to bedsharing, and we wanted her to have use of her arms. We stopped swaddling when it stopped being effective.
