Reviewer’s Experience

Like many new parents, we found both getting our baby girl ready for bed and then actually to sleep no easy task.

We tried conventional wraps but found them difficult as she was an incessant wriggler.  She always managed to get one or both arms free. Our baby girls regular attempts at wriggling herself free meant that she would constantly wake herself during nap times due to the waving about of her arms.

Thankfully, we were given a Swaddle Up as a present which turned into being a godsend. The snug fit meant that she was held firmly helping her get to sleep initially, not to forget the more suitable arms up wings which meant no more struggling to wrap arms down and she was able to self soothe during the night if needed. The zip feature secured the swaddle firmly in place so that there would be no chance of unravelling as she sleeps.

The unique addition of the Layer On Merino is the solution for those cooler nights. The Layer On Merino goes over the top of the Swaddle Up, without the need for putting anything over your babies head and zips up diagonally to secure it in place. The snug fit ensures added warmth without the bulk and concern of blankets being kicked off during the night. The clever design of having cut outs where the Swaddle Up wings are provides added breathability and assists in preventing overheating. The Swaddle Up and Layer On Merino are the ideal sleep system aimed at encouraging a sound baby sleep routine.

It is reassuring to know that I can put my little girl down to sleep and know that I’ve got peace of mind that her swaddle is secure all night through and she is getting better quality sleep. Thanks Swaddle Up!
