    Default Please recommend me a wrap

    As in a wrap to put baby in to sleep.

    I've tried the 'wrap me up', ergo cocoon, and I guess woombie is the same.

    I have also had no luck with muslin wraps or stretch cotton either.

    No luck with the cheaper big w or pumpkin patch wraps either.

    I need something which will keep DS's arms down because every time his hands go near his face he wakes up.

    Muslin worked best for us. Get big ones though, 120 x 120 I think.
    You could try sleepy wings?

    I like the mum2mum brand wrap! Dd2 is impressive at getting her hands out (and driving herself nuts) and these kept her in 99% of the time

    Doesn't sleepy wings also have their hands up by their face?

    I find muslin just unwraps too easily

    Haha this mum2mum one looks pretty good! How much are they?

    Edit: I'm laughing because I find it so funny how I struggle to keep such little arms at bay haha I've tried everything I could think of both with DS 1&2

    I used swaddleme stage 2 with DS when he was a newborn. Very easy to wrap bubs and keep them in the swaddle.

    I found wrapping DD in a sheet/muslin wrap, then zipping her up in an ergo cocoon/wrap me up thing to work great. Had the tight fit of a muslin wrap, but then didn't come undone easily. Might be a bit warm for summer though.
