Has anyone used the love to dream swaddle up original?
My husband purchased one today for our two week old and I'm in two minds about it.
The instructions are not very helpful on what to put bubs in under it and what blankets.
Anyone used it in Melbourne cold temps?

Love to dream swaddle up original

I used it with DD4 from about 3 months right through to 8 months. Was great to keep them warm as they are light then add blankets over the top. I used to put my DD in a wonder suit during winter.

I used them and thought they were brilliant. DD was a winter baby (Aug, in Sydney) and I used them mostly when out and about because I then didn't have to unwrap her to get in the car. I'd dress her in a nappy, singlet and wondersuit under the swaddle, then put a blanket or two over her in the pram.

Have to say they are not good for bubs' hips. DDH is on the rise with these swaddles being used. Its best to choose a swaddle that has a bag or sack-like end on it so babies legs are able to move freely. Since having a baby with DDH I have been made aware of how bad all these swaddles and alot of baby equipment is.
Have a look at baby wings or sleepy wings, they have a great rep.

We started using it recently for dd2, she loves sucking her hands (hungry or not!) she was a good sleeper at night and is now even better, and it hasn't helped her days sleeps.
Our bedroom sits at about 19 at 12pm, we put her in a singlet, wonder suit, love to dream, flat sheet and cellular blanket that comes to about nipple height.
Dd2 can easily move hers legs all around, and I would definatly call the end bag/sack like so I'm not sure what pp mentioned would be an issue with this one

My bub used the love to dream swaddle last summer until he was four months old and he was perfectly able to move his legs. He slept with his legs spread out like a little frog all the time. You can't use the advertising pictures as a guide; they make bub look like a creepy little sausage! The actual product is very soft and flexible, not at all constricting.

Ah ok, I went off the pics on the website. So long as they can move their legs easily without straining the fabric and can be like a frog, then all good. Im just going off what our surgeon told us about healthy hip living.
