  • We use swaddle me's. And yes both of my children have been able to break out of them but I am not willing to spend the money on a woombie haha
  • I use a miracle blanket. It's amazing how well he sleeps in it. It does come undone half way through the night but doesn't take long to rewrap

  • I used the swaddle me when LO still wanted to be swaddled. I like the that the Velcro stays secure.

  • We just use two receiving blankets like they do at the hospital.  It takes a little practice but works well once you get the hang of it.

    We use the Aden+Anais blankets. They work well and I like that we can use them for lots of different things.

    Exactly this!
  • Swaddle Me's. I am totally inept at trying to Swaddle her in a normal blanket in the middle of the night. Yay Velcro.

  • We use the halo sleep sack or the nuroo and I love both. Ds stays in the nuroo a little better because it doesn't stretch out as easy as the sleep sack. If both are in the laundry then we use an A&A blanket.

  • Swaddle Me's!! they are always on sale on Zuillily. I have a HALO sleep sack, but it seems so hot and she's always warm as it is, so I haven't tried it.
  • Nuroo! Sometimes she can get her little hands out the top but can't break all the way out of it. And I like that you can make it longer as they grow.
  • Swaddle me... Life savers!!!!
  • We use the halo sleep sack. I love them. I just bought the next size up because LO is outgrowing the NB one too.

  • We use the swaddle me mostly. I have a swaddle from A&A and not that impressed... could have saved the money and bought a few swaddle pods or more blankets instead. When we first came home from the hospital we'd use receiving blankets and my summer infant muslin saddle blankets (I do like those blankets). But now she breaks free so we need to use something more restricting. She does break free occasionally but for the most part it works great.

    @timscutie01 have you looked at the swaddlepods. Same basic concept but cheaper.

  • We mostly use a miracle blanket but have a swaddleme too. He was able to break out of regular receiving blankets and A&A receiving blankets in his first week of life.

  • We use miracle blanket but it took awhile to get the hang of - and he regularly poops on it so I have to wash it every day lol
  • We have been using A&A blankets but this weekend (almost 4 weeks/11 pounds) he started breaking out in such a way that it gets all bunched up around his face, so I switched to the Miracle Blanket. Those little arm flaps totally work, even if LO is throwing a fit at the beginning he stays pinned and settles down pretty quickly.
