Parents credit the Love to Dream swaddle as being the reason their babies began sleeping through the night. This swaddle is inescapable for even the wiggliest of babies, but doesn’t inhibit mobility. It’s made of soft, stretchy material so your baby will stay cozy and warm. The design also allows baby to keep their hands up by their face, which enables them to self-soothe, and the two-way zipper makes for easy diaper changing in the middle of the night.

The Catch: Seems that babies either love or hate this swaddle, so if baby ends up hating it you might be on to the next one.

  • I used this to transition my daughter out of a traditional swaddle. She loved sleeping with her hands up by her face. Feb 09, 2017

  • OMG I love these swaddles. Neither of my boys could stand to be swaddled in anything else. They LOVED these. Super soft and stretchy as well. Great product. Feb 01, 2017

  • Baby hates this. He grew out of it so fast and his arms were always cramped. Not impressed. Jan 13, 2017

    I attribute my baby's amazing sleep habits to these swaddles that taught her how to self-sooth by putting her arms UP! I want more for my #2 and the toddler suit for my daughter now. Dec 27, 2016

  • My daughter loves this! Keeps her asleep and allows her movement and comfort. Dec 03, 2016

    Perfect for baby who busted out of swaddles from day 1. Used from 1-3 months. He liked having his arms up to sleep and could self-soothe as his fists were within reach. Very easy to put on and zip. Dec 02, 2016

  • Used these from 1 month ~ 5 months on my baby who fought the traditional arms down swaddle. He loved this one! Oct 20, 2016

  • Comfortable, easy to get on and off in the middle of the night. My twins both use these and they help them sleep more soundly for longer stretches. Oct 07, 2016

  • This sack finally helped my baby sleep through the night. Plus it's fool proof. All you do is zip them in! Oct 05, 2016

  • Super easy to use Oct 05, 2016

  • These worked well for our daughter and we used them for quite a while. Oct 05, 2016

  • We used this from 1 to 4 months. She loved having access to and chewing on her hands, and I'm sure it helped her sleep a little longer between feedings. I have recommended it to several friends. Oct 05, 2016

    My daughter loves this. At 7 weeks old she immediately settles down when I zip her in. PLUS, just an easy unzip to change her instead of trying to re-swaddle. Slept from 11p-8a 3rd night in it. :) Aug 30, 2016

  • Super soft material! I love the convertible one because the arms can be taken off when the baby is ready! Jun 23, 2016

  • I got these for my daughter when my husband and I couldn't figure out how to swaddle... We've bought one in every size, our daughter sleeps so well and self soothes because of this product. Jun 02, 2016

  • Allows baby to self-soothe by positioning their arms up in a more natural sleep position. Makes late-night diaper changes simpler, and less disturbing to baby as you don't have to remove. May 16, 2016

  • We absolutely couldn't of made it transitioning from swaddle to sleep sack without this. It was a life saver. Apr 22, 2016

  • These are perfect for newborns. The little spots where the hands go are nice so the baby can "self soothe". Convenient 2 way zipper is great for diaper changes. Mar 25, 2016

    Didn't work for my baby. She just got mad in it. Jan 31, 2016

  • My baby hated being swaddled until we realized he was frustrated because wanted access to his hands. Love to Dream has been a lifesaver! It is also really easy to get on and off and adorable. Oct 07, 2015

  • The one for under 6 months was great. Oct 02, 2015

  • This really helped him sleep in the first couple months, and now we use the 50/50. I wish they came in a 2 or 3 pack though, because he would often soil it and we couldn't wash it fast enough! Sep 29, 2015

    Makes baby feel like she's being cuddled, and that is the only way she has a settled night's sleep Sep 29, 2015

  • Hand position is key; my newborn doesn't like his hands confined but this works as hands are up so can self soothe. Sleeping 4-6 hours at bedtime now. LOVE Sep 06, 2015

    Our baby did not like having her arms up like this-- she could never calm herself down and just wiggled and fussed forever. Jul 31, 2015

    Fabulous way to swaddle without limiting mobility! Baby can still get to her hands. Also keeps her nice and warm in a crib with no blankets. Jan 03, 2015

  • Best swaddle out of all the ones we've tried! Baby's arms are up so she can self-sooth. 2-way zipper makes diaper change a snap. No loud/scratchy velcro Dec 07, 2014

    my baby was not a fan Nov 11, 2014

  • I cannot say enough about how amazing this swaddle is! Inescapable, soothing, stretchy, cute. Our baby started sleeping 6 hour stretches the day we put her in this - at 6 weeks old. MUST HAVE Sep 02, 2014

  • I bought 4 of these in different sizes on a recommendation however I found these were not ideal for tall children with long arms as there is too much restriction. Our son hated these. Aug 18, 2014

    We never used this cause our son likes to suck on his hands. I guess if your baby kept waking themselves up it would be useful, but he used his hands to soothe himself to sleep. Feb 28, 2014

    DD wasn't a fan as she was quite fidgety but I would try it again with the next bub. Feb 01, 2014

  • my baby hated being in this. He seemed claustrophobic & this is when he was a newborn! Oct 14, 2013

  • I know this looks like a straight jacket, but it was Zac's favourite swaddle. It's great because he could keep his hands up near his head rather than by his side and the material is stretchy so he could wiggle about a bit too. Jan 12, 2013
