I can't remember what they're called but they had them in the big Mothercare near me - can't find them on the website though

Blooming Marvellous have this

a moot point for us as DD furiously resisted any kind of swaddling!

We just used a baby blanket or a sheet to begin with, then used the Miracle Blanket once DS started being able to break out of them.

Try ebay - I got my fleece newborn swaddle wrap new on there a couple of months ago. It has velcro to hold it in place, and even has a little slit at the back so you can use it in a pushchair or a car seat (handy as ds hates being open and exposed in his pushchair) the only trouble is that with it being fleece it is a little hot this week and would be better for an autumn/wnter/spring baby. I swaddle him at night in a small cot sheet and make sure that the edge is under him so it doesnt come loose.

I had the one from Blooming Marvellous - thought it was good - ds2 was my only winter baby so didn't really swaddle the others too much as it was too hot.

Not a wrap but a book It's very cute! A friend gave it to me as a Christmas present.

does anyone swaddle their baby and hang it on the wall?

we use a blanket as well the hospital showed me how to do it nice and tightly. Joey can't sleep if his arms are free as he has a tendancy to keep slapping himself in the face!

I used a bug in a rug not exactly swaddle but really handy. I used it all the time actually not just for sleep.
