On top of everything, can you use a sleep sack when baby rolls over?

Instead of a swaddle, consider a sleep sack with open arms once your child is rolling around. So is it OK for baby to roll around as long as they're not swaddled? The short answer is yes, as long as you take a couple additional steps to ensure their safety.

In addition, how long should baby use wearable blanket? When Should Babies Transition to a Blanket? The AAP advises that blankets should be kept out of your child's crib for the first year. After that time, you can try introducing a small, lightweight blanket. Keep in mind that until around the age of three or four, it's unlikely your little one will keep their covers on.

How do you transition out of a swaddle?

  • Start by swaddling your baby with one of her arms out of the swaddle.
  • A few nights later after she's gotten used to having one arm out, move on to swaddling her with both of her arms free.
  • A few nights after that, stop using the swaddle blanket altogether.
  • What should a baby wear under a sleep sack?

    You can add layers under the swaddle or sleep sack according to the temperature. Inside the swaddle or sleep sack you will probably have a onesie and a gown or sleeper of a warm fabric during the colder months. The sleeper or gown under the sleep sack should have long sleeves to cover the arms.
