  • Meh. I didn't love them, I didn't hate them. My baby tended to bust her arms out the top, even when she was new, so I'm not sure how great they were. Oct 31, 2022

  • It was really useful for when my daughter was a newborn. It helped her sleep longer Oct 19, 2022

  • So perfect to transition from arms in to arms out. My girls loved them! Jul 25, 2022

  • Ran very small so didn’t get to use very long! Jul 08, 2022

  • These are great. I have the Velcro strap version as well and I think these are just easier! The zíper is a two way for easy diaper changes. Jun 16, 2022

  • These swaddle pods are LIFE CHANGING!!! Super easy to use, LO’s loved them & can’t wait to try on DD. May 13, 2022

  • These were perfect for when my guys were newborns. They are soft, easy to clean, and provide a little hug to the babies. Mar 29, 2022

  • I liked this swaddle style as we could skip the loud Velcro, but it was a little harder to get baby in just right to zip it up. Dec 27, 2021

  • We liked this swaddle pod with our first and second babies to keep their arms from escaping a blanket swaddle. I'm wondering now if the neck stretched out because my third baby snuck his hands out! Oct 13, 2021

  • Great for the first few weeks. Would only recommend in the smallest size. Sep 22, 2021

  • This is a cross between the tighter Velcro swaddles and the one where the hands are at baby's sides. I found this just frustrated my daughter. If she's done with swaddles, get a sleep sack. Skip this. Sep 01, 2021

    These are our absolute favorite swaddles. Perfect for summer. Smaller babies can also leave their hands up in them! Jul 31, 2021

  • We used these for the first 6 weeks. They are perfect and light weight. Added bonus that there is no Velcro to jar baby awake during late night diaper changes! Jun 22, 2021

  • Must have for newborns or premie babies. These are tight and small enough for tiny babies. They also zip which makes diaper changes super easy. Jun 02, 2021

  • Easiest swaddle for newborns! Great for MOTN diaper changes with the zipper. Quick and easy and lets kiddo snuggle with their hands down or up by their chin. Apr 22, 2021

  • I love this so easy to change baby at nights and keeps her warm Mar 31, 2021

  • Love these swaddles Mar 13, 2021

  • My baby hated being swaddled and after a few nights of trying this, we decided to try a different sleep sack that let his arms be a little more free. I’m sure these would work better for some babies. Feb 26, 2021

  • I love the newborn size. It fit really well and my son slept so well in it. The zipper up from the bottom was so easy fro diaper changes. The next size up is way too big, I wish they could fix that. Dec 20, 2020

  • I loved these when he was little, but he grew out of them so fast and decided he wanted his arms free pretty early on. Nov 17, 2020

  • These work great with a smaller baby when other swaddles may be too big. I used them for the first few weeks home with my baby who came 3 weeks early and he slept so well. Oct 08, 2020

  • I remember when my son was first born! This was the first thing he slept in that night. He loved it and slept so well! Aug 20, 2020

  • My little girl hated this and freaked out when we put her in and my hubby thinks it looks like a body bag. Aug 07, 2020

  • Super easy to use, just zip! My Houdini baby kept breaking her hands out, though. Wish we could've used it more! Aug 03, 2020

    This were an absolute must for my daughters first few weeks. Love the zipper for diaper changes. By week three she had outgrown them, so I upgraded her to the SwaddleMe Original in the 0-3 mo size. Aug 03, 2020

    Received one of these as a gift and it was our favorite swaddle as first time parents who didn't now how to swaddle. We bought like 4 more for our upcoming baby #2. So easy. Baby LOVES them! Jul 30, 2020

  • Purchased this because we felt the SwaddleMe wasn't working well. Our newborn easily rolled over in this, we decided it was not safe. We went back to the SwaddleMe. Jul 20, 2020

  • these are amazing. I believe they give our babies a womb like feeling once born Jul 09, 2020

  • Baby did not like. Will choose a more secure swaddle next time. Apr 06, 2020

  • Loved these much better than the Velcro ones but could only really use them for the first 2 weeks after birth. My kids weren't swaddle fans after that. Mar 06, 2020
