    I use them and own quite a few! Good on your hubby!! My DH would have no clue lol.

    My DD finds them very soothing.

    In winter my 5 month old is wearing the wrap then a wondersuit and body suit/singlet. I then have 3 blankets on top of her. At some time During the night she comes into bed with us.

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.
    Are we talking about the same wrap?

    Our love to dream is like a sack and DD can move her legs into whichever position she likes...no constriction here!

    I googled it and looked at the website which has a pic. No dramas, just chuckin it out there that it is something to consider when choosing swaddles

    One of the best things I purchased. Bubs wore one as soon as home from hospital and was a May baby last year. With the original she wore singlet and onsie with blankets on top. We then progressed to sleepy wings with sleeping bag and then sleepy wing mittens and then to nothing.

    She's nearly 14 weeks, and we have the original. Love it personally.

    The first one of these I bought (about 12 months ago) was quite restrictive around the hips and legs, but every one I've bought since has heaps of room for bub to frog his legs so maybe they have changed the design. DS is 9 months and out of them now, but my self-settling bub has sadly disappeared since I took away his wings.

    Another fan of them here. DS used to get out of muslin wraps as he liked his hands up. This saved our sanity.

    Cant help on what under it in winter as DS was a summer baby so at times he not had a singlet on. But basically just count it as a blanket.

    As for the hip problems from them, I spoke with a physio regarding this and she said there was no problems with using them as DS could move his legs up, frog like as others have said.

    She said honestly they can move better in these then when wrapped in a muslin wrap alot of the time because people wrap them too tightly with straight legs.

    Country girl, have you tried the 50/50? We used this to wean DS off his. First arm was no dramas, but the second took a couple months but he is now fine with arms out. I still use it for day sleeps asa sleeping bag now.

    Yap we love it! We transitioned bub into one when he was about 3 months and escaping usual Muslim wraps. He slept arms in and up it was great. At first even with arms in up he still startled but got used to the swaddle really fast. It's like a sleep sack for him.

    For us we use a heater in our room to keep temp constant between 18-20 deg, so we dressed him in an onsie singlet, plus a cotton coverall then the swaddle. No blankets. If you use a thin blanket to tuck baby down should be okay since yours is very young.

    Ours is a boy so I wasn't so worried about hip issues. He's all okay and he's 7 months.

    one thing to note is every baby is different. If yours gets very worked up by sucking the hands under the swaddle then it may not suit you. Some babies get worked up some get soothed.
