I'm sure there are differing opinions on the subject, but I'd say this is a question for a trusted pediatrician.

Dear all,
My husband and I have been swaddling our three month old son since he  
was born, but we've heard that its best to stop swaddling by three  
months.  We've tried to stop swaddling him and he cannot sleep because  
his arms flail all over the place and he cries most of the night.  Any  
ideas about when to stop swaddling and what to do if your baby can't  
sleep without swaddling?
