I have been trying to wean my 6 month old from wrapping with limited success, however, I came up with a different system last night and thought there may be others who would be interested.
I think it will help with weaning - particularly for those who aren't having success with the one arm out strategy.
Ok - here is what I did. Take a square wrap (I used a soft stretchy cotton wrap); fold one corner over (traditional wrap style); place baby in usual spot. Take right hand edge - fold over arm and then under back. Take left hand edge, fold over arm and under back. Done!!
You need to make sure that it is smooth under back and that each side is pulled over to the opposite side (if that makes sense) - this will help ensure that there is no escape.
Advantages: keeps hands away from face. Provides the advanatges of wrapping with out having the extra heat by wrapping over the stomach etc. Allows some movement of the arms, but not enough to disturb.
So I guess to wean - you could just keep making it looser and looser.
By the way - I asked my Dr today if it was bad that I was still wrapping my son and he said - quite simply - no.....
Thought this might help others who are worried about wrapping.
