in you opinion, what's the best sleeping bag wrap with no sleeves type thing? Woombie? Ergococoon/pouch? Love me Baby/Love to swaddle wrap? Or something like the kidopottamus wrap?
I was so crap at swaddling DD (and DH was worse!), I'd like something that's quick and easy and foolproof for teh next bub!
Has anyone used any of these? Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated!

My cousin has just lent me the Love to Swaddle Up, today and so far so good, will probably buy a second! Good luck!

Can anyone tell me the name of the one that they have their arms up, but in the wrap still? Does anyone know the one I mean? Sorry... It's not for me (yet!) but for a gift but I don't know the name of them!

I have used for my wiggly DS the ergoCocoon, the Wrap Me Up and the Kiddopotamus Swaddle Me. He wiggled in them all. If he couldn't get his arms right out, he'd put his hands up to his face inside the wrap and suck them... I spent a fortune! Anyway, I am back to using a simple fabric wrap. It has to be big and stretchy - that's the only one working for me! Stretchy fabric, like T shirt fabric, is the key...

Hi I have the love me baby & it is awesome. Bub still has their hands up. I've used it since birth, Bubs is 5 months now. I use mine at night only & she settles straight away as soon as she goes in it.

we use wrap me up too, they are meant to be able to get to their hands to self soothe... a little pricy at $36 for the summer weight, but well worth it. Used it with DS1 for about 6 months, easily washed and chucked through the drier, by the end of it was looking a bit worse for wear but we only ever needed the one as it laundered so well.
To wean it i just started undoing the zip a little at a time so he got used to more and more freedom with his arms and then just stopped using it altogether with no worries
Oh almost forgot to add, the makers suggest stopping using it when bubs can roll but I found DS could roll and still support himself with his arms in the arms up position, but you'll need to evaluate that when the time comes
