We stopped swaddling when they started to roll over onto their tummies..

now we use the sleep sacks.  They keep them toasty warm and apparently it's safer than swaddling.

We used the swaddle me sacks as well.. I loved them.

we stopped swaddling a long time ago. We also had some of those special swaddle blankets but always preferred regular blankets to wrap her in. Now we use the blanket sleepers to keep her warm.

about 50% of the time.

Whether it is his swaddle blanket or his sleep sack swaddle thing we use them sometimes.

He hates his hands to be confined and has since the NICU so I never wrap his hands in it.

We tried it once and she screamed and hated it! We've used the sleep sacks to keep her warm before

I swaddle Nicky pretty loosely still. I love the hand made knit or crocheted blankies the best.  He just sleeps so well when he is all snugged in. He gets unwrapped by morning, but it is the way he loves to sleep. When I put him in the bassinet he will sometimes wake up, but once I wrap the blanket around him, pop in a bink and pull the bassinet hood up he just drifts back to sleep. After having two horrible sleepers I am not changing anyhting that works for this kid, lol.

Sounds like we might be in the minority, still swaddling and using white noise here. We have been following the happiest baby on the block and great sleep guide. He sleeps so much better and he is starting to roll back to front but not front to back. He hates getting swaddled but calms so fast and falls asleep quickly. He does bust out and wakes himself if it's not tight enough.
