    Agreed 100%! You can get them secondhand on BSS sites and Facebook if you want to try first. Both my boys were in these until about 5mths when they transitioned to a sleeping bag.

    If she sleeps well with her arms up, have you tried her with no swaddle? No all babies like to be swaddled. If she's not startling and waking herself up, I wouldn't bother with swaddling.

    Yeah she likes it and doesn't scare herself or anything. I just worry that her arms will get cold on those cooler nights. That's why I thought it might be better?

    How about a sleeping bag, such as a grobag? You can get summer weight and winter weight and adjust clothing underneath accordingly. No other bedding required then. My little ones all loved them.

    I use sleepy wings for my 4 month old DD. It just covers her arms and avoids her startling herself or scratching her face.

    Do you mean wrap arms up with a woombie or a wrap?

    I'm sure a friend used to wrap with a muslin wrap, but wrap bubs arms up. I could be totally wrong though.

    I just flat out stopped wrapping ds at 2wks. We just used blankets, and made basinette/cot as per sids guidelines.

    I couldn't sleep with him grunting and wiggling all night.... And I figured he wasnt sleeping well either...

    Instant improvement

    Sleepy wings are great for hands up sleeping.
    My DS was born in November and I ditched the wrap pretty much immediately- he hated it! But I dressed him in a lightweight long sleeve suit at night to make sure his arms were warm enough.
