The Love To Dream Swaddle UP Organic is made from GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) Certified Organic Cotton and is the original & innovative swaddle that allows your baby to sleep with arms up! Babies naturally sleep with their arms up when you place them on their backs. Traditional swaddling binds their arms across their chest or at their sides. When babies wake up and want to self-soothe, they need to have access to their hands to rub their cheeks or put their hands in their mouth. This helps your baby to quickly settle & establish an easy & peaceful sleep routine. Our ergonomic shape and specifically engineered 360° stretch fabric helps reduce the risk of swaddling too tight, insuring you have the right fit for your infant. The Swaddle UP applies gentles, even pressure around the body which may help settle your baby. Most importantly, your baby stays settled and swaddled all night long - which means more sleep for you too! Available in 2 sizes - Small: 7-13lbs, Medium: 13-18.5lbs.
We LOVED our SwaddleUp Lite for our little one, so when she outgrew it I knew I’d be buying the next size up. She seemed immediately soothed once zipped up, and I had the peace of mind that she was comforted, comfortable, and that she couldn’t scratch her face or wake herself up, etc.
We live in FL, which is why I chose the Lite version to begin with. However, I noticed she sleeps better when she’s warmer and we keep it pretty cool at night (we ended up using the Lite during the day for naps and a different swaddle at night). So when it came time to buy, I thought I’d grab this version - a bit warmer and organic (we only buy organic clothing for her).
So far she doesn’t like it as much. The fabric is not nearly as soft as the Lite version, it’s a bit scratchy. Also, the Medium size is longer overall than her Small size, but the elbow-to-fist measurement seems to be the same, which means her arms, which have gotten longer as well, don’t seem comfortable - compounded by the fact that it’s also not as stretchy as the Lite version. I wonder if the large size has a longer arm measurement and if that was the case, I’d skip the Medium altogether and go for the Large.
We’re going to keep trying with her in this version but if I could go back in time I’d probably stick with the Lite version (super soft, stretchy) and perhaps buy the Large size.
9wks 10lbs 11oz and 23 inches when I felt the Small size was too small.
This worked so much better than the traditional swaddle for us. Our daughter did not like having her arms down in other swaddles. We had two of the small size and bought this as she grew but still liked to be swaddled.
We are IN LOVE with this swaddle! Our little one has hated the traditional swaddle since she was about 4 weeks old and this allows her arms to be up near her face which comforts her. One of the best things we’ve bought for our little one and love the organic fabric. Wish there were more color options for organic.
This unfortunately didn't work for our 2-month old, who was used to being swaddled with his arms down. The arms up position startled him awake, then he just wanted to stay awake to suck on his fist and roll around. Seems like a fine product, but doesn't work for our baby.

We understand that all babies are created differently and have different preferences when it comes to their sleep habits. When a baby is used to a certain form of swaddling and then it is changed, whether it be from reaching a new milestone or starting to grow out of their current swaddle, we recommend starting the transition at nap time. By getting them comfortable at naps with a new sleep habit, this will then ease the transition to nighttime sleep habits. We sincerely hope that you find a method that works best for you and your baby! <3
Heaven sent! Received the small gray one for a shower gift, and tried it with great results. Keeps baby from waking up from startling reflex. He hated traditional swaddling because his arms were down by his side. This style is great because baby can still soothe self with hand. Grew out of small at 12lbs and gave to my niece who also is sleeping better with use. The medium size has been just as great!
