These swaddlers are fantastic, because not only are they quicker and easier than using a regular blanket, they are virtually impossible for the baby to break free. My daughter was able to get her fingers through the neck hole eventually, but that just helped her self soothe.
I love that they have double zippers to make diaper changes easier, plus they have improved their fastener at the top. It used to be velcro, which caught on things and could scratch the baby, but now it's an easy to use snap.
They are a bit pricey, but they show up on deal sites all the time and are worth it. My 6 month old is wearing the big baby version right now!
The Woombie is a must-have for all parents out there. I was given one as a baby shower gift from a friend who swears by it and after using it on my newborn daughter I agree. It's a different type of swaddle that depending on the size you buy has a bit more freedom, but still that swaddle effect. The cotton is light and stretchy - ideal against a newborns skin. They have sizes that go up to 25lbs. so it's not just something for a newborn. It can be a little tricky to get all limbs zippered inside, but once you get the hang of it you'll be smooth sailing. There are a wide variety of different ones for all the seasons, styles and colours. Highly recommend it!
