At 4 to 5 months, parents can try letting an arm or two out of the large SNOO Sack through the arm hole. If the baby starts waking more (hits herself in the face with her newly freed arm), you'll want to put her arms back in the SNOO Sack for another 1 to 2 weeks and try again.

Does SNOO prevent self soothing?

This little delay gives babies an opportunity to begin to learn to self-soothe…and to practice falling asleep on their own.
