When Thea was about four months she started showing signs of rolling. I was super anxious because she loved being swaddled at night. I thought I would never be able to stop swaddling her without her sleep being ruined. I did quite a bit of research and made a plan.
I started by unswaddling one of her arms. The first few nights were rough. We got through and she started sleeping better. I decided to unswaddle the other arm. Nope. She was not having it. So I decided to wait a couple of weeks. Fast forward about two weeks and I tried again. She slept almost nine hours both arms out! Now she so sleeps in footsie pajamas and a sleep sack if it’s cold.
Every baby is different but this is what worked for us 😊
