Perfect for my newborn
So easy to use with no loose blankets and my bub sleeps so well. Easy for nappy changes! We had our baby in the orginal in summer with a singlet suit and bub was not over hot. Would recommend to anyone with bubs that luck to move hands about!
So so good
I am a huge fan of this swaddle. Our baby had slept soundly in this from about 2 months when she started to get out of the normal wrap swaddled we did. So she would end up waking up with hands out at all hours of the night. I bought a small and then the size above and she is 5 months now and still using the small and sleeping from 7 to 3am and back to sleep from 3.30 to 7ish. It gives her the freedom to settle herself by sucking her hands ( which unfortunately stains the material unless you soak it in nappiesan) ... Hence the need for 2 so you...can alternate She is now staring to roll so I am trying to wean her off it but she seems to love her swaddle too much right now. We live In qld so I use this as a sleeping bag with just a short sleeved body suit underneath and she seems comfy
Absolutely love this. Without a doubt I believe it is why my six month old son has slept 13 hours straight for months. As soon as I zip him up, he's asleep within minutes. I do not want to stop using it but unfortunately as he's now rolling it's not safe, so I am off to buy the 50/50 on the weekend. Highly recommend.
A definite must have for any new mum. So easy to use and you don't need to worry about annoying wraps.
My baby hated being swaddled with her arms down, so the Love to Dream swaddle was perfect.
The only downside is it's a bit expensive but it's definitely worth the money.
I first tried this when bub was a newborn, but having no idea how to use it I'm sure i put it on wrong bub didn't like and I was sworn off. I didn't try it again until 4 months. Bub needed to be wrapped to sleep and could get out of all the other swaddles I had tried. LIFE SAVER is the term I used many times after buying one. Easy to put on (once I had actually seen the packaging) and can travel with it also. No more tiny little hands creeping out of the top. Bub could also still get her hands (inside the swaddle) to her mouth if she wanted to. Worked great for us.
Easy to put on, stretchy, cosy.
I was hesitant to buy this at first however after just a few days I noticed a difference in my baby's sleeping patterns when compared to muslin wraps swaddles. He sleeps comfortably and for longer when using this or the lite Swaddle Up.
He has outgrown 2 sizes and is now using his 3rd and final size.
my baby loves it, sleeps for longer, safe and easy to use
a little expensive.
Bub would not be swaddled with his arms down, would fight until he would get them out, and then would wake himself up being startled by every sound! Then I found this swaddle and he has slept soundly ever since! Some nights he sleeps up to 10 hours (he is only 5 weeks old)! I also bought the lite version as we living in north qld and it's summer, the material is perfect for up here!
I also like the two way zipper for nappy changes and also adding some air flow on a hot day.
I initially bought the small size as bub was 3 weeks old, he only l...
Changing my original review
I reviewed this product a few weeks ago when we were having a lot of trouble getting our baby into the wings off version. I gave it a poor rating because we couldn't get her out of it!
But we've since had success. We just left it a couple more weeks when she was wanting to move more then slowly unzipped the wings. We also introduced a comforter at the same time. She now has both arms out. And I can now recommend this product again.
Can sleep with arms up, snug as a bug, comforting
Can be difficult to get your baby out of it
Worked for us!
Every time I went to put my baby boy down in his cot he would startle (startle or Moro reflex in babies can be present til about 14 weeks) and wake up crying! It became so stressful that it was easier to let him sleep on me or in my atms rather than put him down. This unfortunately meant that I could not get any sleep and I was starting to lose my mind with exhaustion! Then one day I found these swaddles at the baby store and I thought I would give them a try. OH MY GOD! the first time I used them I fed my baby, he fell asleep in my arms, I bur...ped him and then put him down in his cot. And nothing. He stayed asleep! I couldn't believe it!! These swaddles are amazing and I will definitely be using them again for baby number 2. They worked! The seat belt hole in the back is great too The material in the lite ones did stretch out.
My baby has always been so hard to get to sleep. My partner and I have been going crazy without our sleep and I headed to Baby Barn Discounts in Tweed Heads and they recommended the Love to Swaddle Up. I've always been a little apprehensive about swaddles as the wrapping looks complicated and they look rather constrictive. Good thing about the Love to Swaddle Ups is that it is a simple zip up swaddle and my bub can have her arms up and close to her face and she sleeps like a dream now. I seriously would recommend this swaddle to all new mums who value their sleep and their baby's wellbeing.
"simple, effective, cheap, good quality"
"a little thin"
BEST $$$$$ SPENT ON BABY GOODS
These are amazing. I recommend them to everyone. Bub was sleeping like a trooper from the fist day was used them. Great for sneaky hands that wriggle out the top of swaddle blankets. This will be my staple baby shower gift from now on. Everyone should try these. Buy neutral colours because you get multipul use out of them!
Everything. 50/50 transition was great also
small size was still a little big for our tiny bubba.
A must have for all new parents!
I purchased our "love to dream swaddle up original" direct from the love to dream online store 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. After ordering the love to dream swaddle I was SO impatient for it to arrive as I was sure it would solve our pr...oblem - and it did! Amazingly! She loves it and sleeps in it every night (now 8 weeks old) and it's a dream to transfer her in and out of the car especially. Two days after the swaddle arrived I went online and ordered another two so that I wouldn't be stuck without a clean one! My advice to anyone thinking about buying this product is DO IT - and buy AT LEAST two so that you can have one in the wash and one good to go. I have a few other zip up swaddle products and this is the best by leaps and bounds! The only downside i've found at all is that it takes a while to dry (cannot be tumble dried), mainly along the outside seam which is quite thick. Having said that, we live in a cold climate so it hangs inside on a clothes horse to dry - if you lived somewhere that had more sun this probably wouldn't be an issue. Natural arms up sleeping position, easy to use, easy to change nappy/transfer to/from car and pram, cute Long drying time (VERY minor con)
Great purchase. We wrapped our baby in muslin wraps for the first few weeks though she always managed to get herself out and one time the wrap had gone over her face which was worrying. Before we even knew about the Love to Dream swaddle - during the day when it was warm we just covered bubs with a sheet and she seemed to sleep with her arms up next to her head. The Love to Dream swaddle covers everything and you dont need to worry about bubs getting out of it or it covering their face. The swaddle is apart of the bedtime routine also and as so...on as she is placed into it and zipped up she knows its time for sleep. Will definitely be using again if we have another baby. Easy to clean; Easy to use; Fantastic! Discolours where hands go into mouth; expensive
My baby can't sleep without being swaddled but won't sleep if wrapped too tight. The love to dream swaddles are perfect! She loves them! She can be swaddled but still be able to move her arms. You can also click baby into the car whilst wearing it as it has holes for the clicker. I love this product and so does my baby!
Great design, good price, easy to use, can put baby in the car whilst wearing it.
Slept through the night with this!
Bubba loves this and so do I. She slept through for the first time when we bought this! Yay.
She knows its sleep time the second you zip her up.
Love this product.
Would recommend that don't buy white as they discolour were bubba sucks on hands and it doesn't look great.
Zip makes it easy to pop bub in even if she's already fallen asleep. Hands don't get cold.
Doesn't work well in the car as the shoulder straps can't go in the right place.
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?
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 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.
