When baby Elijah was in my tummy, we would often joke around about him being a little bit of a ninja.
The arms and legs never ever stopped.
Now he’s out and all of 12 weeks old, nothing at all has changed.
In my 8 years experience of wrapping up babies to get them to sleep, never have I come across one so eager to escape the wraps and get their wriggly arms free.
So I started researching baby swaddles.
Love To Dream came to the rescue with their fantastic and easy to use baby swaddle.
The ‘Love To Swaddle UP’ differs from many other swaddles on the market as it allows the baby’s arms to remain UP rather than strapped down to their body.
Elijah is still able to get his hands up near his mouth and rub his cheeks with the super soft cotton of the swaddle. The double ended zipper allows for easy access and it even has a slot so you can transfer bub into the pram too.
So now, when we prepare Elijah for bedtime, he is secure in his swaddle with his arms up right where he wants them to be.
AND GUESS WHAT THAT MEANS???
We now have a snuggly little Swaddled UP baby that sleeps through the night and no longer wakes himself up with the startle reflex.
I have been trialing the Love To Swaddle UP for over 2 weeks now and I cannot say enough great things about it.
Our quality of sleep has improved immensely and I am now getting 8+ hours sleep a night, which is amazing compared to the 3 hours of broken sleep I was getting!
The difference is incredible and I wasn’t expecting such a fantastic result.
I am definitely sold on these swaddles and will be purchasing another so I don’t have to have it washed every day.
The Love To Swaddle UP comes in sizes to suit newborns right through to toddlers with a range including organic swaddles and 50/50 swaddles that can be turned into a sleeping bag.
