IMAGE VIA COPPER PEARL

Bringing home a new baby is the start of an incredible new chapter in your life. That goes without saying. It's also the start of a number of mind-boggling issues regarding sleeping, feeding and settling that can overwhelm you if you don't know which questions to ask. Questions like, which baby swaddle is best for baby to fall asleep? Do I go with a Love to Dream swaddle, as they seem popular? Will your baby like to be wrapped in a muslin swaddle? What about the swaddle sacks that don't require any enveloping? The options are endless, but thanks to our research - not too overwhelming!

What should you look for in a baby swaddle?

When you're looking to choose a swaddle for your baby, it's important to do a bit of research regarding which kind of swaddle might be best for you. Regardless of which style you prefer, you want a baby swaddle that can be wrapped tightly around baby to make them feel secure. You also want something breathable, made from 100% cotton, bamboo or muslin.

Different kinds of swaddles for babies:

When you're choosing a swaddle, it's good to have a solid idea of what's out there and therefore what might work best for your baby.

Muslin swaddles:

Muslin swaddles are great if you're confident in completing a burrito-style wrapping method. This kind of wrapping method is designed to keep baby nice and snug, so that the startle reflex is kept under control. This tight form of wrapping allows baby to feel secure, as having their arms free may make them feel too vulnerable. Muslin swaddles are also great as they double as blankets and shades for over the pram!

'Arms up' swaddles:

These 'arms up' swaddles are most well known in the form of the Love To Dream swaddles. This is where baby is snuggled into a zip-up swaddle with their arms positioned up by their cheeks, as opposed to wrapped firmly down by their sides.

Swaddle sacks:

Swaddle sacks are great for newborn babies, as they're designed to envelope baby with a snug fit, without needing to be wrapped too tightly in a bid to keep strong arms from escaping! These baby swaddles are more to keep babies feeling safe and cosy and enclosed and are designed to be put over baby feet-first, up to their chin - kind of like putting on a sock!


1. Love to Dream Swaddle Up™, $44.95

Love to Dream Swaddle Up™

What makes the Love To Dream Swaddle Up different?

The unique and patented Arms Up™ design of the Love To Dream Swaddle Up™ replicates your baby's behaviour in the womb, allowing for a natural arm's up position. The Arms Up™ position also allows for true self-soothing, as your baby can gently touch their face or suck on their hands. True self soothing means more sleep for you and your baby.

Twin zippers allow for swaddling in seconds with no breakouts, and for easy nappy changes. Swaddle Up™ has also been acknowledged as a hip-healthy product by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute; as the design allows the recommended flexion for hips & legs.

A 2017 survey of 1,247 customers found that 83% of parents reported an increase in hours slept by their baby when using the Love to Dream Swaddle Up™.

Why try the Love To Dream Swaddle Up™?

The patented, award-winning Love to Dream Swaddle Up™ helps babies to settle quickly and establish a peaceful sleep routine. Importantly, it completely removes the need for loose blankets in the cot/crib, making it a safer option for babies.


Unlike traditional swaddles that keep a baby's arms by their side or across their chest, the unique Arms Up™ design of the Swaddle Up™ has patented wings that allow a baby to sleep in their natural Arms Up™ position. This means your baby can easily touch their face and suck on their hands and fingers for true self-soothing™.

Real customer reviews:

"Tried so many swaddles and this one is the only consistent one. I use it in my 9 week old baby and last night he slept for 7 hours non stop! I wasn’t sure about the arms up, I thought that would wake him up every time I put him down however, he does wiggles a bit and learnt to self sooth with his hands so a win win for us. I can’t recommend this product enough, saved my nights!"
"We started with traditional swaddle technique but bub hates his hands being swaddled down. He was upset and struggled to get his hands out so I switched to Swaddle Up. I could see bub is happy with his hands up, sooth himself every time he startles. Swaddle up also makes nappy change easier, we don’t need to remove bub from the swaddle and redo it again and again. I’m happy with the purchase and will be getting 2 more for bub." - Corrina G

2. ergopouch 2.5 TOG Cocoon Swaddle Bag, $59.95

What makes the ergopouch 2.5 TOG Cocoon Swaddle Bag different?

ergopouch Cocoon Swaddle Bags are designed to be both easy to use and difficult to escape from. This zip-up swaddle is TOG rated for warmth to keep a baby snug and securely swaddled without the need for complicated wrapping from day one.

A TOG-rated design means that the 2.5 TOG can be used on its own in room temperatures between 17-23°C / 63-73°F with no blankets in the bassinet or cot to make this a safe sleep option for a newborn or baby. The chest area is 1.0TOG rated to prevent overheating and allow for full chest expansion when breathing.

For extra warmth, parents can layer up underneath as needed, and follow the handy FREE ergopouch room thermometer and what to wear guide included with the product to help them dress their child appropriately.

Why try the ergopouch 2.5 TOG Cocoon Swaddle Bag?

The Cocoon Swaddle bag is made from and filled with GOTS certified organic cotton, with elastane in the outer fabric and bamboo in the lining. This means it's firm enough to restrict startle reflex whilst still allowing stretch and movement for healthy growth. 

The soft, breathable organic cotton and bamboo is certified non-toxic, dyed with water based dyes, and gentle on newborn skin, and skin prone to eczema breakouts. The handy arm poppers transition the Cocoon from an arms-in swaddle to arms-out sleeping bag when baby is showing signs of rolling. 

The bell shaped design is approved by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute as being hip-healthy, and promotes proper joint development in the hips and shoulders joints. Finally, the two-way zipper makes for quick and easy nappy changes during sleep with minimal disruptions.

The ergopouch Cocoon Swaddle Bag meets all safety standards in Australia and New Zealand and is reviewed by the Eczema Association of Australasia as a skin-friendly product.

Real customer reviews:

"I’m a first time mum with a 7 week old and I refused to buy any sort of sleeping bag while pregnant because I thought it was a ridiculous, trendy gimic. When my girl was 2 weeks old at 3am I ordered an ergoPouch sleeping bag as it was on sale and boy was it the best purchase I’ve ever made. We both are having much better sleeps, she doesn’t come out don’t he swaddle and best of all I don’t have to use any bedding in her bassinet and won’t have to stress about her getting suffocated. Also I know her body will be at a perfect temperature all night." - Annaliese
"We love our ergopouch! First, it's just so nice to be sure that our little one is comfy cozy and warm enough. But second, it's low-key the best swaddle out there. No silly straps or complicated wrapping. We just zip him in and we're good to go. Just love that when he's ready arm freedom is just a couple of snaps away" - Amanda

Real customer reviews:

""Absolutely lovely these! Really easy to use, so soft and such lovely patterns. Our little girl who is nearly 8 weeks started sleeping through the night when we got these! My only gripe is I wish the labels were along the back and not where it wraps around, they sometimes slip out and annoy her but that's me being really picky! Definitely still recommend!"" - Amazon Customer
""I love that this is much better than a normal fabric wrap for sleep, my baby was like Houdini, always getting his arms out of the traditional fabric wraps no matter how I wrapped him and would sometimes startle himself awake from noises. With this wrap I'm able to snuggle him asleep without him doing that with his arms and change him without fully unwrapping him. He is still able to stick his little hands out from the middle between the fabric sometimes after i pick him up for something but it's not anything harmful. Very great product and I highly recommend it wish I got this sooner. Not all brands have the zipper at the bottom for changing."" - Debbie Tran
""These! Very nice material and work great for my 2 month old! Zipper bottom is super convenient at nights so I don’t have to unswaddle her!"" - RegiReg
