too old to swaddle

My daughter is almost 9 months and used to love to be swaddled. She started sleeping through the night at 2 months and stopped around 5 months. I have been racking my brain trying to see what has gone wrong to cause such bad sleep habits now. I could lay her in her crib swaddled and awake and she wouldnt fuss and now she screams when I put her in her crib.I cant believe I never realized it could be the lack of swaddling. She is now crawling and climbing up to things. Do you think it would be too late to try swaddling again?
