    Default Swaddling Newborn

    DD is 3 weeks old and im getting the impression she doesn't like being wrapped. Each time I wrap her, especially at night she grunts and cries and struggles like she is trying to get out of the wrap. Is she too young for the Love to Dream swaddles?

    I used them from birth so no, I don't think she's too young. Worth a try at least!

    I started using them when DD was a week or two old. They stopped her startling herself awake.

    I think they're fine at that age providing they're not too big for Bub

    Congratulations on your new baby!

    They're ok from birth. They were a godsend for both my kids.
