    I know this is probably a really stupid question, but what blankets are best for swaddling LO in?

    Thanks :hugs:

    miracle blankets are the best by far. Www.miracleblanket.com. You can get them cheap on ebay. Mothercare used to sell them but I'm not sure if they still do.

    Ive heard the miracleblanket is amazing. Would of gotten one if we didnt order this other thing www.puckababy.com is what we have and it isnt as tight as a swaddle but stops my baby from startling himself awake. We are happy with it :)

    I used to just use a stretchy blanket and a sheet to hold her, im still using the same but I do the same thing as the miracle blanket and its working much better as shes so strong now and was strarting to break free!

    Because it has been so warm here I got a thin cotton table cloth and got a fabric shop to make it into big triangles and it's good because she doesn't keep too warm then

    I cut up one of his fitted cotton jersey cot bed sheets (cut the elastic off) and use that as its really lightweight and stretchy x

    They are kinda similar except the kid.. works with velcro which is not so good at that wakes babies up, so if you get the swaddle wrong and your lo is asleep then he/she will wake up. Also I have heard they are easier to break out of than the MB. I bought one and I have yet to use it. With the miracle blanket it does say to stop using after 3.5 months but you can swaddle without the leg part. The plus side of the kid.. is that is goes up to 22lb babies.

    You can get miracle blankets off ebay. I have gotten two from there so far.
