Arms out at one month

katiec Member

Has anyone had success with arms out as early as one month? We have her in a Snoo so we aren’t worried about rolling, but she has never been a fan of having arms swaddled and she fights so hard she gets her arms out of the Velcro anyway. Our pediatrician said to try arms out already.


  • Yes! My baby kept her arms our from day one home from the hospital as a newborn. We would swaddle her and no matter what she’d fight her arms out. She’d sleep just fine with the rest of her body swaddled and her arms up on each side of her head. It was never an issue - I think every baby just is different and has their way of wanting to sleep and be comfortable.
