I was a bit reluctant to swaddle my first child because she preferred to sleep with her hands up. However, I have heard so much about the benefits of swaddling and I am really keen to try it this time around.

I have discovered Love to Dream Swaddles, which are the only ones on the market that allow your baby to lie in the natural ‘hands up’ position. Two babies are never the same, but even if my second child also wants to sleep hands up, then I will be able to use this swaddle.

The brand combines all the benefits of a traditional swaddle with the ease-of-use and safety of a sleepsuit. The soft, clingy fabric around the baby replicates the feeling of being in the womb, while arms are up in a natural position and hips are free to wriggle and move.

It is a very popular product and it seems that I am a little late to the party! Everyone I know that has used a Love To Dream Swaddle UP has described it as a complete game changer.

Some of the Key features include:

  • It accommodates and encourages a natural sleeping position: The ARMS-UP™ design means that baby’s arms are close-by allowing for true SELF-SOOTHING™.
  • It is simple to use: Your baby can be ready for sleep in seconds and the two-way zipper allows for quick and easy nappy changes with minimal fuss.
  • You can trust the product: Love To Swaddle UP’s ’hip-healthy’ design has been certified by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute so baby’s hips can develop properly. Meanwhile, a single layer of fabric reduces the risk of overheating.
  • It allows for startle-free wakeups: The cut and design of the Love To Swaddle UP, with its soft, stretchy fabric, slows down baby’s Moro reflex allowing them to wake up calmly and startle-free.

The swaddle is suitable to use from birth. You only need to think about moving on when your baby starts to roll over independently. At this point it will be sensible to consider the Love To Dream Stage 2 Transition bag.

As my due date gets closer and closer, I am concentrating on the first stage. The Swaddle Up is available in a variety of Togs from the bamboo lite 0.2 to the snuggly 2.5togs. This makes it a great product for all seasons.

So whether your expecting or you know a friend that is the perfect gift is a Love To Dream Swaddle.

Prices start at £28.49 for a single Swaddle UP Original
