Wrap your baby in the comfort of the Summer Infant SwaddleMe, the original adjustable infant wrap. Swaddling soothes newborns by recreating the familiar, comforting snugness of the womb and helps prevent baby from startling awake so babies, and parents, sleep more soundly. SwaddleMe wings are adjustable for just the right fit on baby and keep even wiggly babies swaddled tight. Every baby needs to sleep safe and sound.
Good news: swaddling soothes newborns and allows them to sleep more soundly by helping them feel secure and inhibiting their startle reflex (so parents sleep more, too). Bad news: swaddling effectively in a regular blanket can require the skills of an origami ninja. These easy-to-use, velcro swaddle wraps make swaddling as simple as one (insert baby), two (close left flap), three (velcro right flap). (See demo video here.) weeSpring parents advise to keep an eye on when the swaddle becomes too small for your growing baby, or you may wake to find they’ve “Houdini’d” out of it.
The Catch: The velcro sometimes sticks to other things in the dryer; make sure it is closed before washing.

I truly hated these. The velcro is incredibly loud when you're trying to secure baby (or even just get the swaddle open) and both of my kids figured out how to escape these quickly and very early on.

Although these worked when my LO was first born, she outgrew the small by 3 weeks old. We didn’t buy the next size up because traditional swaddle were working for us; then we moved to sleepsacks.

I thought I was going to love these but they left me feeling meh. My babies could easily bust their arms out of this. And undoing the Velcro for diaper changes is SO loud. It startled my babies. :(

I love these swaddles for the newborn stage. The velcro means I don't have to worry about swaddling perfectly, and it always stays in place. The larger sizes never get tight enough for me, though!

They worked well at first, but after multiple uses and washing the Velcro did start to not be as effective anymore. They do come in a lot of cute patterns though and we used them for naptime

Unfortunately, these didn't work for us. At 1 month, these were one of my emergency up at 4am Amazon buys. I wanted them to work badly, but my son hated them and would not sleep at all in these.
