For our little one she hated to be swaddled with her arms down. That meant mittens that would fall off and loud Velcro that would wake her completely during a changing. This was the perfect solution! (May 30, 2017)
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 love the fabric of this sleeper as well as the hands in but still moveable feature. My daughter couldn’t roll, but could move a bit and was still not waking herself in a panic at a young age.

This swaddle was our baby’s favorite. Zipped up to prevent our Houdini babe from breaking out and kept her arms up where she liked to have them. Plenty of room in the legs for healthy hip development.

Baby wore when super little. but outgrew at 2 months and we even got the L size. She was super snug in it. I would have gotten more weeks with XL. We switched to different longer brand moving forward.

Good transition swaddle. Doesn't completely calm the startle reflux so I wouldn't recommend for newborns (>2ish months). Easy to get the baby in and double zipper makes for easy night diaper changes

I bought this for my newborn who loves to sleep with her hands up by her face. However even in this she would bring her hands over her face which worries me from a SIDS perspective. Going to return.

These are the best! Easy to zipper and quiet when needing to change diapers. LO loves sleeping with arms up and these were great. Baby would not get too warm or be too cold in them. You need these!

I thought my baby would love this as he likes to sleep with his hands up, but so far 8/10 times he has gotten frustrated in his sleep with not being able to move his arms. I’ll keep trying it.

Oh my goodness, so much yes! Don’t question the price, just do yourself a favor and BUY THESE SWADDLES! I actually have to wake up my baby to alleviate engorgement she sleeps so well in these!

This was fantastic for my baby! She wasn't interested in a pacifier, so she was able to self-soothe with her arms up in this. It also made for an easy transition out of swaddles when she was ready.

Hilarious! Baby’s arms are up by their head and looks adorable but it actually did help with transition from Velcro swaddle to sleep sack. The wings zip off so this swaddle has longevity which is nice

My son really preferred to have his hands up but his startle reflex would wake him at night. This was the perfect solution and he looked absolutely adorable in it! Super soft and easy to use.

My baby LOVED being swaddled, but did not like this swaddle at all. Feeling her hands by her face woke her up constantly. She tried to suck her hands and didn't like finding the fabric instead.

Amazing! Second day home with baby I found these. I had been using regular Velcro swaddles but this is so much easier for changing diapers before every feeding at night. Baby much prefers hands up t

We tried every kind of swaddle, and this is the one that worked best for our LO. The first night we used it, I couldn’t believe how peaceful it was. Every baby is different, but for us, this one wins.

While my baby didn’t love it, it seemed like a very good and sturdy (read: in-break-outable) swaddle. He hated being swaddled in general but this one certainly gave him a run for his money.

My daughter has hip dysplasia and is in a pavlik harness. This is the only sleep sack that fits the harness and she sleeps so well in it. I just wish they weren't so pricey so I could buy more.

my child hates to be swaddled, but if i leave his arms out they flail. i read about this and gave it a try. it works! it’s stretchy enough he can move them but controls the flailing so he’s not waking
