A: Hello, fabric for our original Swaddle Up is sourced from both China and India. Thanks for your question!
A: Hi Jen--No, Love To Dream products are NOT treated with flame retardants. Let us know if you have any other questions!
A: Hi! Our Swaddle UP Original swaddle wrap is made of 1.0 TOG fabric, ideal for moderate room temperatures between 68°F and 75°F. We also make several styles in "Lite", which is 0.2 TOG, ideal for warmer room temperatures up to 81°F. Thanks for your question!
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!
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!
A: The Love To Dream Swaddle UP comes in three sizes: Newborn (5-8.5 lbs., max child height 24"), Small (8-13 lbs., max child height 25") and Medium (13-19 lbs., max child height 27").
A: The Love To Dream Swaddle UP Original is not GOTS certified, however the Swaddle UP Organic is GOTS certified.
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.
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.
A: No! We have two and neither had a scent when purchased. We washed it before using it regardless.
