With DD2 we have a swaddle me blanket so she can't break out of it, but sometimes seems annoyed by being swaddled especially in the early morning. She likes to have her hands up by her face and can't do it when swaddled.
So, when did you stop swaddling?
To be fair though, we didn't swaddle at all between a few weeks and about 6 months, and since then we've had to swaddle more and more often. We just use a big blanket though. He can break out of it once we've laid him down, but so long as I'm holding him and the blanket he can't.

My 4 month old son is a good sleeper, so swaddling was nice for him for a while, but he really doesn't "need it".
He also inherited his daddy's italian blood, so he get overheated when swaddled. Poor guy sweats like crazy and it has to be uncomfortable! So we stopped.

DS was swaddled for maybe a week. He too hated being swaddled.

I stopped swaddling the girls earlier. DD2 stopped sleeping in a swaddle at about 6 months. DD1 never slept swaddled. We only swaddled her when she was awake and fussy-- it helped calm her.
