    Default Swaddle recommendations for little houdinis

    3 day old DS is a little wriggly Houdini and keeps getting out of his swaddles and waking himself up. I know there are a multitude of swaddles in shops designed for this but wandering if anyone had any recomendations? Especially for newborns.

    I brought an adain & anais easy wrap but it's a bit big for him yet and I have a couple ergo ones to try when I get home. I really need to keep his fists away from his mouth/face he even tries getting his fists in his mouth whilst breastfeeding!!

    Thank you.

    I found all of my Boys needed arms down swaddling to start with. Eventually they loved there love to dreams but for the first 6-8 weeks having there arms up has distracted them and they wake themselves up rather than settle themselves (or they lay there sucking and awake for aaaagggeees).

    At the moment for DS3 I either use the cheap Velcro one from target or bigw, I think it's the only newborn size they have, or I just wrap him using the extra large aiden and anais wraps we have, but I've gotten good at wrapping to keep them tight, and I find I just need to rewrap with each feed overnight.

    I used the Swaddleme with my newborns as I liked that they came in various sizes from 0-3 yrs so would use the small size when they were infants to stop the face scratching/waking up. I also liked that they were super soft for newborn skin and easy to use velcro.

    We bought a bamboo wrap this time and it's working a treat. Stretchy to keep arms in and out of mouth but light enough to not be hot on the occasional humid nights we're having at the moment. My DD2 suddenly thinks it's feed time if her fist ends up near her mouth. Ok for day time but not night... Up all night the first couple till I figured it out.

    I tried pretty much every swaddle on the market then came across this wrapping technique which was amazing. We wrapped DD like this til she was almost 6 months old:

    I used a halo sleep sack after trying so many. Both mine hated the ltd. Used it in swaddled mode, then removed the 'swaddle' section and transitioned it to just the sleeping bag. Was great

    In this thread I wrote a really long post about all the swaddles I tried. There have been many 😂
