Thoughts on Swaddle Blankets?



I've got one on order from Asda, there was a 3 pack for 20 odd, but I just one on it's own to see if they're any good as I've heard not all baby's like them.

What are your experiences/are you trying them??

I figure as it's summer, it would be much easier to wrap him in one of those and put him in his moses, less of a worry about blankets coming loose etc.

Personally I hated swaddling, Oliver was born in March and it was cold, and he was a hot baby and the swaddling made it worse. We went to cellular blankets and he seemed happier.

Looks like it will be a mixture of trial and error then. Glad I've only ordered the one for now then.

I would really just wait and see how it goes, then if he likes being swaddled then oyu can get some more. You can swaddle with muslins etc as well so they are cooler x

Yeah I've got 3 really big muslin blankets, do you think I should get more? But maybe smaller ones which I can just use as burp cloths. I bought a 3 pack but not really sure how many I'll need. I suppose if I find I need more when he's here I can always go and buy some.

Wow! lol
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.

I swaddled at night but not during the day so my son became aware of what was night Night and day, by the time he was 5wks old he was sleeping right through so I will deffinately be doing it again this time! They should feel more secure like when in the womb xx

I swaddled my first but never used these specific swaddle wraps. I just used a flat sheet or large muslin - it lasted for about 4 months until he figured out how to release his arms. we then went onto a baby sleeping bag and he loved those.

I looked at the swaddle wraps this time but just couldn't justify spending that much
