Hello! We're looking for recommendations when it comes to swaddling. We have looked at the Love To Dream swaddles and the Groswaddles but wondered which you prefer and why. Or, do you use a different swaddle that your recommend?

TIA!

Love to dream! We tried the TT gro swaddles and found the sizing to be quite small. It felt really constricting around her torso with her arms in and and she wasn’t a big baby. Also she likes to have arms up a bit so the love to dream has been great. Most of my mums group use the love to dream also

Brilliant! Thank you! In all my scans, baby has had his arms up near his head so clearly a natural position! I'll get one or 2 of those so I have a spare

In case the arms up is not necessary - we really liked the Little Seeds ones - lovely soft cotton and much cheaper than a lot of of others as you get three in a set

I was looking at these on Amazon! 3 for £17! Worth a try at that price!

We had an Ergobaby one we nicknamed the straight jacket and then just had an sort of standard zipper one that made DD look like a little bean when she was all zipped. The Ergo one was great when she was small, but she started being able to pull her arm out so we switched to the zip (swaddled for AGES, like 4 months old...) so had to find big ones!

We tried so many different swaddles and my DD seemed to hate them all - she would just fight against it and get so frustrated and angry. I'd just about given up on swaddling, and the idea of her sleeping anywhere other than me, then tried one last type called the Miracle Blanket. It comes with a 100% guarantee that it will help your baby get to sleep and stay asleep longer and it honestly works! It's saved my sleep.
