Didn't last 2 minutes
Bubs felt super uncomfortable and restricted in this, he didn't even stay down for a nap. It also made late night feeding awkward with the arms bent that way. I don't think it works for every baby especially if they are more active and want to change their arm positioning during sleep.
I actually feel really bad for giving this product a 2-star review because I actually absolutely love it.
However I am disappointed with the customer service, and this review is intended for the customer service and not the sleepsuits.
I have been buying love to dream sleepsuits ever since my baby was born. I have all three stages and they are great.
However I was recently at a baby expo, where I stopped to buy a new stage 3 sleepsuit for my baby, I already have the new 2019 design, and saw that there was the 2018 design available.
I held both...
Only way to help bubs sleep
I’ve tried traditional swaddling and multiple brands of suits but the love to dream swaddle suits are the only outfit i can get bubs to sleep in if I want to transfer her to a bassinet without startling awake. Well made, breathable and comfortable. A total lifesaver
I wouldn’t buy this again!
I bought warm version after my baby was able to wriggle out of the traditional swaddle! I was expecting big things because of all the good reviews and obviously the price!! I tried using it a few times and my baby just wouldn’t settle! He usually sleeps 8hours in a traditional swaddle but would sometimes wriggle out leaving loose covers! Hence why I looked for something more secure! He didn’t even sleep for 30 minutes each time I tried! As soon as I swaddled him the way I usually do he settled straight away! Love the thought of it and the quality is good but doesn’t serve it’s purpose to us!

Regular swaddling was better for sleep
A friend gifted me one Love to Dream Swaddle Up original organic swaddle and I bought another Lite Love 2 Dream as I had a summer newborn (1.0 and 0.2 TOG respectively.) They were so highly reviewed and another friend had highly recommended them. But my personal experience of them was that they are just okay and given the price tag, regular organic swaddles were a much better investment. It really does depend on your baby.
Quality construction, organic options: GOTS certified organic cotton for the Swaddle Up and bamboo (viscose) for the Lite.
Faster and easier to use than traditional swaddle
Twin zipper for easier nappy changes

Perfect product for our babe
We used the Love to Dream Arms Up swaddles from when our little girl was approximately 3 days old to 4 months old. Having her arms up but secured allowed her freedom to suckle on her hands to self-settle (win!), plus reduced her startle reflex - which meant more sleep to mum & dad! High recommended.
- Verified purchase
My 10 week old started throwing his arms and legs around when going to sleep so he would always break loose of being swaddled. So, I purchased the Love to Dream swaddle and it’s now soooooooooo much easier to swaddle and change his nappy through the night. I don’t have to fight with a swaddle every night now. They are a bit expensive for a swaddle but they are definitely worth the money.
Whats the point?
My baby can move around way too much in this, swaddles are meant to make babies feel snug and secure, but she wriggles so much in the love to dream and startles which wakes her up, so i have to say I just dont get the point- only advantage is my baby cant wriggle out of it and therefore i know she wont get cold.
Perfect answer for Houdini baby!
My baby can get out of any wrap, except this! We tried so many different wraps and techniques!! Highly recommend for better baby sleeps! Can also use during the day. Definitely worth the money. I’d suggest buying a few in case of a vomit or nappy leak during the night.
Every nap time
Now an essential part of our naptime routine for my 8 week old - he is so snug and happy when in the suit. I have two handmedowns which are about 6 years old and a little stretched out so I don't like to use them but my two new suits - one cotton and one bamboo - are brilliant and i want more!
My son won’t sleep without one!
Despite being quite expensive to purchase, I simply couldn’t live without this product!! My son hated it to start with when he was a few days old, however, by the time he was two weeks old he loved it! He is now four months old and cannot go to sleep without being in one! I will soon purchase the 50/50 swaddle to transition him out as he is almost rolling. I suggest this product to all pregnant friends and will use again!
Good but expensive and hard to resell
These swaddles are expensive considering they’re only used for a couple of months at most. You can use wraps instead although these swaddles are more convenient.
Problems come when it’s time to resell. Despite it being in really good condition, no one was interested in buying it second hand and the company aggressively defended the photos of their product. Don’t expect to get any money back after you’ve used it for a few months.
These are so practical and easy to use. My 3 kids loved them, so did I. No having to worry about swaddles coming undone, or having to unswaddle to change a nappy at sleep times - you simply unzip the bottom zip and pull their legs out. My kids have been asleep and I've managed to change their nappy.
They can move their hands to suck on them.
You can then put them in a sleeping bag if it's cooler weather too.
Couldn't have been without it
Love to Dream Swaddles were my life saver. Around the 6 week mark my little boy began refusing to sleep. He spent his nights fighting to free his hands and would just scream and cry all night long. I had been gifted 2 newborn Love to Dream swaddles during my baby shower but thought nothing of them. In a desperate attempt I put one on my little boy. I was shocked, he calmed down and began sucking his little hand through the material and settled himself to sleep. The next night for the first time he slept for 6 hours. I've never looked back, he a...lways hated having his arms strapped down. When he outgrew it I bought the next side up which were the transition ones. My son only stopped using them around 18months when we began transitioning him to a toddler bed with a blanket. I'm pregnant again and soo glad I have these ready for the new one.
Deserves a standing ovation!
These swaddles didn’t exist 12 years ago when I had my first son. Most recently I have enjoyed using them for my second son as they were a vital part of his sleep routine. The fabric is so soft and the design kept my baby boy feeling warm and secure. Very good quality and easy to launder.
Questions & Answers
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?
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 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.
