    Default Swaddle that keeps arms down but allows movement of hips

    Just wondering if any hubbers can recommend a swaddle that keeps arms down but doesn't restrict leg or hip movement?
    DD2 (15 weeks) often gets her hands out of her wrap by the morning which often results in her waking herself prematurely.
    She's not too find of the love to dream / wrap me ups which have arms up.


    Totally in love with our two beautiful little girls.

    What about sleepy wings? Can be worn up or down and just goes over the arms.

    Have you tried just swaddling her arms? Fold your swaddle in half so it only covers her upper body and also adds extra strength for Houdini arms!

    Ergo swaddles allow the natural " froggy" position of legs

    Halo sleep sacks allow good leg posture. The website for the international hip dysplasia institute has videos showing safe swaddling with a wrap or a halo sleep sack

    I bought one at Baby Bunting, but you can also buy online at the SIDS and Kids online store. It can be used to swaddle arms in any position or as a normal sleeping bag. I found it easy to use.

    We also ended up in a halo sleep sack for dd. Its pretty much a sleeping bag (so lots of freedom from the waist down) with a 'swaddle' attachment for arms.

    I found it especially great when we weaned her from swaddling as we could swaddle with 1 arm out, then 2 then just used it as a sleeping bag.

    I use an ergo cocoon in the large size for my 15wk old DD. the large (7-12kgs) is roomy/stretchy on her so she can still move her arms around a bit (rub her nose etc) but not enough to suddenly wake her. as it converts to a sleeping bag it's quite roomy on her legs.

    Those ones have the cocoon shape to them and don't really look like they allow the legs to sit in the natural froggy position.
