Should I continue to wrap him?

Hi Maree, I have a 5 month old baby.. Since birth, I have been wrapping him in order for him to go to sleep and I still have to because he cannot fall asleep if his arms are moving.. Is this alright as he`s now 5 months old and should I continue to wrap him??? I tried unwrapping him and putting him to sleep but he will only sleep for 5 minutes and wake up the moment his arms start to move...

Maree...
Answer: Hi, We do say from 3 months on not to wrap, as baby is moving more freely. He is associating sleep with the wrap and if you want to change this you may wish to implement our settling techniques to teach him to sleep independently. Cheers, Maree
