Did not live up to expectations
I was so excited to try this swaddle with the zip down arms. I hadn’t seen a bad review so figured it’d be great. We used one for the first time last night on our 3 month old and she can still get her hands right up to her face when the arms are zipped down by her side. The material is very stretchy. Unfortunately she slept terribly.
The other thing I dislike about it is that for daytime naps you have to undress your baby down to a singlet to put the swaddle on and then redress when they wake up. Long sleeved onesies will not fit underneath.
Made my baby sleep longer!!
All the times that I have put my two month old into a sleep bub swaddle, she sleeps longer than any other swaddle! The zip arms are very practical and helps not to disturb her warmth but allows her freedom when I'm doing the early morning feed. Great design!
I cant live without it! when it needs to be washed has to be ready to use again that night.
This is amazing, im a mum of 3 boys a 5 year old and 2.5 year old who never slept but my 5 month old has been the best sleeper ever giving me 6 to 8 hours sleeps most nights unless this product is in the wash. totally amazing!Show details
Amazing!!! Highly recommend
LIFESAVER!!!!! This product is perfect and amazing. As a first time mum this swaddle would have to be one of the best things I ever bought!! Swaddles bubba so good and knowing he’s not going to wriggle out during the night like he would with a muslin wrap. Buns is 9 months and loves his sleepy buns swaddle. All communication from the team, especially Eileen, have also been 100%. Highly recommend this product!!Show details
I absolutely love this product, I am a first time Mum and found this product when I was browsing swaddles online. I bought the swaddle and romper and have dressed my baby girl in the swaddle since birth and she has settled well, sleeps for hours and I find nappy changes at night super easy! Thanks Eileen for answering my questions via email also! Natasha
Adore this product!
So I got one of the new swaddles with arms zipped to sides....... My bub has been sleeping through 7.30 - 6.00 every night since! No more Houdini arms getting out and waking himself up!!! Absolutely adore this product And have recommended it to friends who are having swaddle issues too
Just wanted to thank you. Mummy and the little man absolutely loves the Sleepy Bub.
We both get so much better sleep nowadays
These swaddles are an absolute lifesaver!!
Absolutely love these swaddles! My bub was a Houdini and could get out of any swaddle so this was perfect to help him sleep well.. it also made it so easy to transition to arms free swaddling without any fuss
Great product and great service. Love that bub can play in this and then just need to zip down arms and ready to sleep - helped me with a smooth and less unsettling transition to bed. All the details thought through with this - so great for helping them to sleep and settle!
I’ve seen Sleepy Bub come up as a suggestion on my Facebook a few times. Showed hubby and he was all for it. I gave Eileen a call with so many questions and she was happy to answer all. I ordered both the romper and swaddle. He's seemed to learn pretty quickly not to move his arms as it won't get him no where! We've managed to stretch the sleeps to about 4.5-5 hours
Best swaddle and my son loves it
The first night my 3 month oold son put on this swaddle he slept from 7:30pm to 1am for a feed then back to sleep until 6am in the morning and played for an hour then felt asleep all by himself the first time for another 2 hrs ! Thanks to this amazing swaddles my son has finally sleep so well for the first time in 3months
Wow! Best Swaddle! Fantastic customer service.
Wow! That’s the only way I can start this review. The video of the swaddle looked fantastic when a friend sent it to me, so I decided to try it. Unfortunately because my little man is very strong and extremely tall, the swaddle wasn’t long enough and he could get his hands to his face. This is where Eileen came to the rescue. I rang and told her what was happening, she couldn’t do more for me. She made some alterations on a swaddle she had and express posted it to me. I used the altered swaddle and it is a did send! The swaddle is a perfect length, and there is no way my lil man can get his hands to his face. The best bit... he slept from 8pm till 4am. Please do yourself, your sanity and your lil one a favour and get this swaddle.
Saved my sleep!!
I have two children my first had colic and my second had reflux, needless to say we lost alot of sleep. With my second he was always agitated and moving alot in his sleep from his discomfort which enabled him to escape from other swaddles and would wake as soon as he did. I tried everything, I tried the Velcro ones, I tried placing a tucked in blanket over his body but nothing worked, finally the sleepy baby page popped up on my facebook, I wasn't sure but I though " hey we can't come out any worse" so I bought one. The swaddle arrived quickly... Read moreand I tried it the night it arrived. It was easy to put him in and the zips made it easy to hold down his arms without having to juggle holding the arm still while you wrap the blanket over! And omg my baby slept so well, only waking for his feeds. I have recommended this product to everyone and continue to sing it's praises, thankyou so much for this amazing product
makes it easy to put my baby down for naps
i love the sleepybub swaddle. my baby in the morning goes back to bed about 1-2 hours waking up so now with my sleepybub swaddle i can keep him in it but unzip his arms when he's awake and when when he gets sleepy i don't have to disturb him. i love that i can change his nappy with out taking the whole swaddle off. i love the swaddle. great quality zips. double main zip. light weight material. inbuilt mittens on end of sleeves. long and loose around the hips. great for hip health.
I purchased the swaddle a few months ago in preparation for transitioning. Bub had always disliked the love to dream swaddles as he preferred to sleep with his arms down instead of up so I was super nervous trying him with his arms out. This swaddle is SO easy to put on compared to the Velcro swaddles we’ve used in the past and the design is so cute! We are now just over a week with arms out and with only 1-2 nights of waking up once during the night and I’m so happy it’s going so much smoother than I expected.
Thank you sooo much Eileen for your amazing customer service and even better product. Highly recommend this to everyone!! X
Questions & Answers
is it suitable for winter?
It’s quite thin so I’d recommend a onesie underneath!
In cooler months we recommend baby wears a singlet, pants and socks underneath the Sleepy Bub Swaddle. If the room is particularly cold, a sleeping bag or wrap blanket can be used over the top of the Sleepy Bub swaddle for extra warmth, being careful not to overheat baby. I hope this helps.
