My baby seems too young to do without the swaddle as she still has a startle reflex. Should I still unswaddle her?

Younger babies between 4 and 5 months sometimes do still have a startle reflex, which they eventually outgrow. If you've taken a few days to work on sleep and your baby is still startling and waking very frequently, you can consider using a transition swaddle like the Zipadee Zip, which provides snugness while still allowing some mobility and also allows your baby to suck on her hands.
