They are quite expensive. I think I will try maybe using the swaddle wrap just at night time.

I was swaddled before swaddlers were even invented, so I will try the swaddle blankets but I'll also be using his receiving blankets to swaddle him and see which he likes better.

I bought some, but then my baby girl was born and i found out that she hates her arms swaddled in anything. The halo sleepsacks are working better for her since I can leave her arms out. It just all depends on what the baby likes.

Same here. I swaddled my first two babies and plan to this time...it's great to make them feel secure. However. I used receiving blankets to swaddle them and I will be sticking with those blankets this time around as well. It blows my mind how expensive those swaddling blankets are...I can't justify spending that much money when I know receiving blankets work just as good.

Some people complain about the receiving blankets coming undone...I personally would rather buy some Velcro to add to the receiving blankets.

I have one on hand in baby's hospital bag just in case he does need/want to be. It's a nice lightweight cotton one that I think will be good for a summer baby.

All babies are different, though. According to my mom, when my brother was born, he'd scream his head off if swaddled, but I liked it just fine.

These are really large ones so may keep them as blankets and get some of the smaller, cheaper ones from Asda then.

It also shocked me when OH's mum and my mum both told me I should have atleast 8 sets of sheets for his pram and moses basket, because I could be changing them up to 2-3 times a day if he poos through his cloths etc lol.

We have four sets now (with twins) and DH is complaining I bought too much. He has no idea.

I used cotton jersey to swaddle my son as it was summer and that was lightweight. breathable and stretchy for a good swaddle that even our little houdini couldnt undo! This is the same material the wraps are made from but I liked to swaddle in the old fashioned russian style as my son had a terrible moro reflex! I have bought some 100% cotton lightweight jersey from ebay for this one and now how have two swaddle blankets for less than a fiver!
