our DD seems to like the sensation of being swaddled but kicks off ordinary sheets and blankets in minutes. anyone have experience/views on the miracle or grobag ones? or others? are they worth the money?

Don't know about the bought ones. My mum made me some out of t-shirt cotton. She just put a deep hem up the long side where his neck is. They are about 80cm by 2m. Really good because they are thin and stretchy.

I've got a brand new miracle blanket never been used if you want one. (white from mothercare)
It's been washed but not used £8 inc postage

Miracle blanket is fab, was a lifesaver for DS for the 1st 12wks. He could work his way out of a swaddled normal blanket but had no chance in the miracle blanket

Grobag is good - but are you sure you are doing it tight enough?
If is is long enough to tuck under him on both sides it should work fine?

Gogetter - Pretty sure we're doing it tight enough. She's jsut a bit of a houdini. Is grobag one ok for summer temperatures?

Amazonianwoman - same questions - is the miracle blanket ok in these temperatures?

Peachygirl, could well be interested in yours - you got an email address?

thanks all

using it at moment just with babgro and a blanket on the bottom half - seems good! I kind of tuck the loose side around and lye him on it then he can't get his arms out. I do it pretty tight though!

I have used this one for ds and dd and would recomend them.

It is not super tight though but kept both of mine swaddled. Has lasted for both of mine and will put it away for another.

Also, you can leave their legs out of the bottom bit if it is hot. I used to put dd in vest then leave her legs out. When I went to bed, put them back in for the night.

Yes, miracle blanket fine in hot weather, used ours in hot spell in April, just put DS in a vest. You can also leave the legs out if v hot.

i thought i was a fab swaddler with dd could get out no problem so i think it's to do with how wriggly the baby is.

loved swaddling ds and did it for months, it annoyed dd and she'd fight until she was free!

miracle ones look scary to me!
