    Default Swaddle Me

    So DD is getting her arms out of her wrap so I thought id try the Swaddle Me wraps.
    Has anyone used them and what are your thoughts?

    Yes I used them with dd. She still got her arms out but I used sleepy wings or a Muslin wrap folded into thirds lengthways and wrapped over and under her arms under the swaddleme. They are great.

    We loved them, DD was in them until about 1yo. So easy to use and she could push herself up/crawl in them easily.

    We have a love to swaddle version. Dd 5 wks sleeps like a dream in it. She also likes sucking on the wings and soothes herself back to sleep sometimes.

    It's firm but not tight and I like that you can gradually remove the arms from the next version in the range so they slowly get used to not being wrapped up so much to sleep.

    We had the love to dream swaddle for DS1, he slept well in them. DS2 (9 weeks) loves to be swaddled but is getting out of his muslin wraps. We tried him with a love to dream swaddle and he wouldn't sleep, he hates having his hands up, so today we went out and about a halo sleep sack swaddle, which keeps his arms down. So far, so good, and there's no way he'll escape it. You can also transition bub to a sleeveless sleeping bag with this swaddle, which will be handy.

    Bub hates her arms in but she sleeps a lot better so we wait till she's in a milk comma before wrapping I went and bought a swaddle me but I got the wrong size being medium and had ripped the box so have to wait till she's put on more before I can use it so will most likely keep wrapping with the muslin wraps till then.

    I've got the love to dream as well and they are good but my DD gets such comfort from sucking her hands I just let her have her arms out. She sleeps so much better that way
