Great for newborns

Super soft fabric. My baby loved them as an infant and would wear them during day naps because they were super easy to get on and off. Then she started to hate having her arms restricted. I do wish the arm bit was maybe a bit bigger as she preferred to have the higher an over her head or more on her chest. But always worth a try! Show details

Perfect for our little one

Got ours from David Jones when they had the 25% sale, it’s worth it. Induces more sleep with less arm movements, keeps bub cozy and warm for the weather. Show details

Disappointed

I bought this product originally because my little one month old was wriggling out of his traditional swaddle and just didn’t really like being restricted. I was quite dissatisfied with the product considering it is quite pricey. My one month old hated it, he rolled around the bassinet crying and getting frustrated that he couldn’t bring his arms all the way around the the front of him without the sleeping bag pulling on the back of his neck. He seemed really uncomfortable most of the night and wouldn’t sleep at all in it so we had to take him out of it and go back to traditional swaddling and he fell asleep instantly. I think this product definitely has some design faults in it that need to be modified and addressed. Show details

Dye ran

My first baby sucked the arms of this product and the dye ran. Very concerning for a mum. I certainly won't be using this product for my second baby.

Our baby sleeps like a baby

Our newborn was sick of a normal swaddle after a week. She was super uncomfortable and always trying to wiggle out of it, and keeping herself awake doing so. Ever since we're using this swaddle, she's a lot more settled and relaxed. Highly recommend it. Show details

Sizing system is finicky and expensive

Quality is great, sizing is not. I bought a newborn size swaddle for my son pre birth, he was born bigger than the weight recommendation, therefore not getting any use out of it. I upgraded to size small and after a few weeks he is already exceeding the weight recommendation for the size. I’m choosing not to upgrade sizes again as I believe the narrow sizing for each swaddle is a waste of money, for such minimal use. The zip at neck was also quiet tight for my little fella Show details

A newborn essential

I was stressing about swaddling - so these have been a real lifesaver. I don't think they're necessarily right for every baby, but I love the ease of them and our baby girl seems to be really settled with them. They're a hospital bag essential.  Show details

Extremely tight around back of neck

Dangerous product and the company should be sued for making money on such a terrible product. When the baby pushes their arms forward, just have a feel of the material around the back of the neck... It cuts into their necks and my baby screams in pain when he does this.. don't waste your money on this garbage and save your baby from a terrible experience. Show details

No good for strong startle reflex

If your bub has a strong startle reflex I'd avoid these. With the arms up she took longer to settle and wakes herself every time she startles. Swaddles like the ergoPouch are much better, as they swaddle the arms to the chest. Also I found her arms and hands got really cold in them. I don't understand why the warm pouch and original pouch have the same thickness of fabric on the arms, so the warm pouch doesn't really provide any extra warmth! Such a waste of money for me.  Show details

We are based in Melbourne with the weather being freezing and having the thermostat set to a constant 19 degrees. What tog rating would I use and what clothes underneath?

They are thin. Probably around 2 tog thinking of my other bags. In Sydney we also have the house around 18 in winter, I put them in long sleeve arms onesie, a thick Bonds onesie and socks.

I have the swaddle up in size small for my 6 week old baby, he weighs 4kg. I have noticed that the material under the zipper is bunching up and almost pushes towards his chin. I'm worried this could be a potential hazard. Has anyone else had this problem? Is it because the swaddle is too big/small?

I have the same problem. Did you ever get an answer to this?

I never received an answer, however it did get better as we went up in sizes and he subsequently grew. It was only that size/age where I had the problem

I noticed with my little guy when he was first born I got him the small and the back of the neck used to dig into his skin and leave red marks, he would pull his arms forward and do it worse.. it wasn’t to small either.
