What do you use to wrap your baby in summer? I've been using a light wrap but dd likes untangling her arms and sleeping with them up next to her head. I then worry about the wrap covering her face so I'm always adjusting it, folding it down. I've even tried wrapping different so she could have her arms up but still can't avoid it. So, other than maybe buying a swaddle, does anyone have a solution?

If you don't have a swaddle...

Google the 'Love to Dream' swaddle, it comes in a 'Lite' version for summer. We progressed from swaddling with a muslin wrap to that and it was amazing!

I have an ergocacoon. It's really really thin and cool. Dd likes her woombie with arms down but hates arms up. There is a way to wrap with arms up though

I use a miracle wrap for DD... It is amazing! I've also just bought spaghetti wraps which are perfect for summer... still testing them out though

Bassinet sheet whilst small. Cot sheet when bigger, with light clothing underneath.

Stretchy wraps are better than muslin. We had the same prob with muslin - he pulled it up over his face.

My dd is the same and I ended up buying a swaddlepouch to put her in. It was AMAZING!! You get them from big w and it's a lightweight stretchy material that zips up. Also love that it has a double zip so Shen I change her at night I just unzip the bottom one and I don't have to worry about taking her out of the suit.
Couldn't recommend it more!!!

So it's worth me buying a proper swaddle then? Will it be easier too when bub is in her own bed, in her own room? (she is currently in a bassinet next to us).

The only way to know if it works for you is to try it out

I was 'good' with a muslin swaddle and I still found a love to dream pouch excellent.
