Baby must have!
Love to dream make the best swaddles! This 50/50 option means you can swaddle your baby as normal, with one arm out when they show signs of rolling and both arms out once rolling. Perfect transitional swaddle and ones for every season
Not practical, waste of money Swaddle up 50/50 2.5 TOG Bamboo inbuilt
The outer material is premium, soft and long-lasting. Sewing technique is very professional. However I personally don’t like the wings of this brand as it feels like the baby is tied in the bag with his hands always in a fist. With this particular product, the thick bamboo inner layer makes the swaddle like a frame, so thick that I feel my baby can’t breath well. Besides bamboo is not soft. Especially the upper part is just a thin cotton layer, which makes the baby slide down a bit from his chest. This can cause reflux and is really frustrating.... I have to put a towel under his upper back to make his spine straight. Besides his feet are not warm in the bag. I think swaddle transition is just a waste of money as you can use it for a very short time before changing to another sleep suit/ bag with more room and freedom.
Purchased in February 2019 for A$59.99.
I have been using this for my twins since they started to roll and were no longer able to use an original love to dream swaddle (as they needed their arms free). They seem to like it, and it provides a good way to transition to sleeping without being fully swaddled. I particularly like the lite 0.2 tog version, which suits the summer weather in Queensland.
LTD 50/50 Swaddle
I have been using the love to dream swaddles since my twins were newborns and they absolutely love being in them! They were in the original swaddle for a while then I transitioned them into the 50/50 swaddle which I think I didn’t need as they still sleep together and don’t have their arms out just yet so I could of stuck with the same swaddle but different size. I think their great quality and super easy to use and their great for quick nappy changes which is a life saver when you have twins! They could make the price a little cheaper as we have to buy a new one pretty often because they are gaining weight so quickly so price could be better but they are definitely worth it. 100% recommend.
Love to dream
Loved using the love to dream 50:50 for both my kids. Light weight. Easy to remove arms when they were both old enough. On cooler nights would just put them in long sleeves outfits.
Found using in the car a bit difficult. I was never good at getting the buckle in and out and would usually end up waking them up if they were asleep. But otherwise I am so happy with this product.
Great but probably didn't need it
Loved the 50/50 because it was so comfortable looking and allowed a transition to arms free.
So I spent $100 and bought two! Especially as the original Swaddle ups were great.
However it turns out that my baby preferred being completely arms free or completely arms in so I didn't really need this product.
I would suggest trying out arms free for a few days and only purchasing this product if the transitionary period of "one arm in, one arm out" is stil required.
Using it as an arms free bag is fine but due to the length I wasn't able to use it for long.
I purchased this for my grandson following high recomendation from my daughter who uses this for her toddler. I had bought the first little Swaddle UP suit when he was born. The new parents were a bit reluctant at first to use the newborn Swaddle UP as they had muslin wraps. However, they quickly found the little suit helped baby settle in to sleep well. I plan to give the 50/50 suit as a Xmas present now that he is bigger. I know what a godsend it will be, as promised by my daughter.
The perfect follow on from the (fantastic!) original love to dream swaddle
I first purchased an original (not 50/50) Love to Dream (LTD) swaddle when our little girl was about 4 weeks old. She loved to sleep swaddled but I was finding it SO difficult to keep her all tucked up as she was getting so big and strong and could wriggle her little arms out and wake herself up. I also found leaving the house a nightmare as I couldn't leave her swaddled and transfer her into the car or pram. She used the original LTD swaddle until she grew out of the medium size, and we then transferred her into the 50/50 in the large size.
Love To Sleep 50/50 zip up wrap
This is a must for babies that love to sleep with their arms up. My little boy would wake up in the night because he was trying to get his arms out of his normal wrap but this allows them to sleep nice and snug with their arms above their head. Generous sizing means they are in them for a good amount of time and you can eventually zip off the 'wings' when they are learning to sleep unwrapped so you can do it one arm at a time.
practicality, design, light weight, seatbelt buckle hole in the back.
Gets stained on the wing part as they usually try to put their hands in their mouth, but it's easily cleaned.
