Description

When you place your baby to sleep on their back, their natural position is for their arms to go up. The Love To Dream Swaddle UP Original features a patented design that allows you to swaddle your baby with their arms up in this more natural position. The medical reason behind baby's desire to have access to their hands is that when they wake up at night, they want to self-soothe, which is simply stroking their cheeks or sucking on their hands. If they are swaddled with their arms restricted, they cannot do this, which causes them to wake, get frustrated, and try to get out of traditional swaddles. The Swaddle UP is a stretchy blend of Cotton and Elastane designed to be snug and cozy around their torso, contain baby's arms, and thereby calm the startle reflex, encouraging a long, restful night's sleep for Mom and baby. The Swaddle UP is safer than swaddling your baby with traditional blankets. With the Swaddle UP, there are no difficult wrapping techniques required and no risk of dangerous loose blankets in your baby's crib. The Swaddle UP's dual zippered design allows you to do diaper changes while keeping baby swaddled and has no pesky snaps, easy closure or tricky wrapping, ensuring that your baby stays comfortably swaddled all night. In addition, the Swaddle UP has plenty of room for baby to move their legs and hips, and recently received recognition from the International Hip Dysplasia Institute (IHDI) as being a 'Hip Healthy' product. The Love To Dream Original Swaddle UP is Stage 1 in Love To Dream's 3 Stage Sleep System. Since 2008, Love To Dream has been finding simple, yet genius solutions to everyday parenting and baby needs. The best news of all is that our products work. So everyone in the family will achieve a better night's sleep. Functionality, usefulness and innovation are key for Love To Dream.

Q: Hello! I just bought this yesterday and it seems a little tight around his neck in the back. He is 6 weeks old and around 8 pounds. when he sleeps, does the back neck part loosen??

submitted by Gabrielle - 2 years ago
  • A: Hi Gabrielle--We're unsure what size you purchased, but at 8 lbs., a Small would be the correct size. The neck is designed in a way that it's not too loose so it could go up and over baby's face. It's made of soft, stretchy material so it should be comfortable. Let us know if you have any other questions!

Q: I am due next month and my baby is already trending to be a large baby. 9 pound range. I was originally planning to get the small size but now I am wondering if I should get the medium?

submitted by HappyTshopper - 2 years ago
  • A: Hello! Congrats on your baby to be! We normally recommend a size Newborn for almost all babies, as babies lose 7-10% of their body weight after birth. Just like a loose blanket swaddle would defeat the purpose of swaddling, a Swaddle UP that is too lose would not work as well to help calm baby's startle reflex. In your case, a small may be the correct size to start with, but you could have a newborn size ready as well, and then exchange it if you don't need it, so you're prepared either way. Best of luck!

Q: Do I remove the swaddle during night feeds?

submitted by Hamilton - 2 years ago
  • A: The Love To Dream Swaddle UP can be worn during night feeds depending on the position that you are feeding your little one in. We would advise you to speak to your child's pediatrician or a lactation consultant if you need assistance in finding a position that works in the Swaddle UP and feeding at the same time.

Q: Could my baby that has hip dysplasia and had to wear a brace wear this since the bottom of the saddle looks roomy?

submitted by Sv - 3 years ago
  • A: Good question! The Swaddle UP is not designed specifically to have enough room to accommodate for a hip dysplasia brace, so it could be very snug fitting in the legs/hips which is not advised. Love To Dream does make a special Hip Harness swaddle on their site for these very occasions.

First of all, I have to say that I don’t think this is for every baby, nor is it for every age. We tried this swaddle early on and she did not like it. We used regular cotton swaddles for a few weeks before she started breaking out of them, and then we used Velcro swaddles until she somehow managed to start breaking her arms out of those as well. She was waking up several times at night with her arms free and I was desperate to get her to sleep, so I tried this Love to Dream swaddle again, and she slept through the night for the first time ever, 8 hours! We didn’t use it the next night and she woke up several times again, but we used it again the next night, and she slept 9 hours! Since her hands are by her face, she is able to self soothe throughout the night and it has been an absolute game changer. I would say definitely size up because we put her in a size small, even though it recommended the XS size, and it fit her perfectly. The stretchy material allows for longer wear as she grows, and the simple zipper design allows to easily and quietly get her in and out of the swaddle for diaper changes, etc. I know some people have had issues with this swaddle or it didn’t work for them, but we have loved using it for our girl! It’s a little pricey, but so worth it to finally get sleep!!

Thank Goodness I Found This Swaddle

wroark330 - 19 days ago, Verified purchaser
I cannot say enough good things about this swaddle! My baby would just toss and turn and flail all night long causing her to wake up every time she did this. If we tried to swaddle her, she wouldn’t sleep because she didn’t like her arms down at her sides. This swaddle has helped compress those movements while allowing her to keep her arms up as she prefers. She sleeps for at least 3 hours at a time now. It’s been a life saver!

The swaddle is great, but the sizing is off. Other reviews mentioned this. I ordered two, one from Amazon in pink and one from target in gray. The gray is much too small for my 1 month old. The pink fits per the size chart.

Great little sleeper with this

5 out of 5 stars
FTM0396 - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
My baby has grown to be a great sleeper, and I believe this swaddle had some part of that. This was her first swaddle, so she got used to having her hands still touch her face and move some during sleep early on, whereas the other swaddles completely confine baby's arms. When we transitioned to arms out swaddle styles later on, she transitioned seamlessly, no wake ups or anything. I'm happy I made this choice for baby's first swaddle.

Absolutely love this swaddle! If you have a baby who loves to self soothe with their hands near their face/mouth, then this swaddle is for you! Our son went from crying every time we’d put him down at night to sleeping 3-4 hour stretches at 6 weeks old. We have regular swaddles and he was not a fan. We definitely plan on buying more as he grows!

Rita - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
During naps, we noticed our baby always slept with her arms up so we tried this swaddle assuming the position was her preference. After a couple nights, the swaddle had broke skin around her neck. As her arms move during sleep, the fabric rubs on her neck. In addition, we later learned having arms above the head for long periods of time could impede gross motor development. It's not a natural position to be in! Lastly, we had an unopened box for one size up and tried to return it but Love to Dream would not accept it. Then tried to sell it on Poshmark and they reported it to have it taken down! Not a fan of the product or company

It gives multiple warnings to buy this swaddle based on weight but my four week old 10 lb, 21 inch baby is choking in size small. Her arms won’t even lay flat at her side because it’s so small across the chest and the neckline just chokes her. I almost bought this in medium as I thought it would be a waste to spend $30+ on something she’s 3 pounds shy of outgrowing, but the label advising to buy according to the weight made me go for small. Trust your gut moms and dads! This thing runs small.

Who came up with the song! It’s definitely off. My baby just hit the 10 lb mark and is 21” so the small should be the correct size for him. But it is so tight on him, and he is miserable which defeats the purpose of a swaddle. Unfortunately, I lost the box the box in the Christmas chaos so I can’t take it back, so it’s a total waste of money.

We bought this for our newborn who loves to sleep with her arms up. It's so easy to put on, she sleeps soundly in it, and we have peace of mind knowing she doesn't have an easy way to break out! One of our best newborn purchases for sure.

Madeleine249 - 3 months ago, Verified purchaser
We tried a few different swaddle styles and this works well for our big and long baby. The zipper is convienant for diaper changes. Other swaddles with Velcro would get stuck to other clothes in the wash and damage fabric, so I like that there is no Velcro. Other swaddles were too small and short as well. He seems to like the arms up positioning and sleeps well at night at only 6 weeks. It’s thin so if your room is cold you may want put a warmer outfit underneath. Price is slightly high.

OctoberMama23 - 4 months ago, Verified purchaser
Really love this swaddle! It made all the sense since my baby naturally throws her hands up when she's in a deep sleep. This swaddle also made me feel better about her sleeping since it gives her a little more freedom as a baby instead of the other tighter/cocoon swaddles I originally bought. The only reason I gave this 4 and not 5 stars is because when I feed my baby with it on her arms are in the way that doesn't help during a messy feed, so I need to put a cloth down over top of them instead of taking the whole swaddle off. Also, it's a little pricey for her only wearing it less than 1 month. She grew out of it pretty quickly, so I already sized up! Otherwise, this swaddle is amazing. Definitely helps her sleep at night better.

I had to rebuy this swaddle because I couldn’t find the one I saved from my son’s infancy. I joke about this swaddle and tell my friends and family that when I die, to cremate me with this swaddle LOL. All jokes aside, both of my kids slept through the night in their bassinets by 2 months old. 9-10 hour sleep stretches at night! I implemented this swaddle with their night time routines and I can almost guarantee the good sleep is because of this swaddle! You don’t usually get 2 good sleepers but with this swaddle, you do.

I ordered a small based on the size chart but it was way too snug (baby born weighing 7 lbs, 3 oz). I exchanged for a medium which was better but the arms are so short that baby can’t extend them all night. Seems like it would be uncomfortable.

My baby hated to be swaddled he would cry non stop. He also hated to be laid down in the bassinet and it was impossible to get him to sleep in it. I bought this to try and he has slept in his bassinet every night since. He doesn’t even cry when I put this on him. Great purchase, I would absolutely recommend this to any mama.
