You should choose the correct size SWADDLE UP™ or SWADDLE UP 50/50™ based on your baby’s current weight, not their age or their length.
In the SWADDLE UP™ range there are four sizes available: Newborn (suitable for 5-8.5 lbs., Small (suitable for 7-13 lbs.), & Medium (suitable for 13-18.5 lbs.).
In the SWADDLE UP 50/50™ range there are three sizes available: Medium (suitable for 13-18.5 lbs.), Large (suitable for 18.5-24 lbs.), & X Large (suitable for 24-30.5 lbs.).
As tempting as it might be to buy a bigger size, unfortunately the answer is no. It is very important that you always purchase the correct size Swaddle UP™ for your baby, based on their current weight. If you use a SWADDLE UP™ that is too big for your baby the neckline could be too loose, which can potentially be dangerous.
The TOG measurement, typically used in Europe, refers to the approximate warmth of the product by measuring the thermal insulation provided by its material. Basically the higher the TOG, the warmer the product.
TOG rating uses an ascending scale from cool & lightweight products at 0.2 TOG to warm & cozy products at 2.5 TOG.
Check your baby regularly to ensure they do not overheat.
We recommend that you purchase at least two SWADDLE UPs™ or SWADDLE UP 50/50s™ in the appropriate size. If you own two then one can be in the wash while your baby is wearing the other one. It might even be helpful to consider having a third on hand to use in case of emergencies!
The SWADDLE UP™ is made from a single layer of cotton (93%) & elastane (7%) fabric & is highly breathable.
The SWADDLE UP™ Summer Lite is 30% lighter than the Original version of the Swaddle UP. It is perfect for those extra hot days & nights. The SWADDLE UP™ Summer Lite is made from a finely woven, ultra-lite, single layer of cotton (97%) & elastane (3%) fabric that is highly breathable.
The SWADDLE UP™ Organic is made from 95% cotton Global Organic Textile Standard and 5% elastine fabric.
The SWADDLE UP™ Winter Warm features 100% natural bamboo quilting on the front of the garment for extra warmth. The body layer of the garment is made from cotton (97%) & elastane (3%) fabric.
The SWADDLE UP™ Original, Organic & 50/50 are equivalent to approximately 1.0 TOG.
The SWADDLE UP™ Summer Lite is equivalent to approximately 0.2 TOG.
The SWADDLE UP™ Winter Warm is equivalent to approximately 2.5 TOG.
The SWADDLE UP™ is unique because it allows your baby access to his or her hands for self-soothing. Some babies love to suck on their hands as they fall asleep- unfortunately this does mean that the ‘wings’ of the garment can get a little wet.
Parents should wash any garment, swaddle or wrap after use if it is soiled. The same applies to the Love To SWADDLE UP™. We recommend purchasing more than one so that you always have a clean Swaddle UP while one is in the wash.
LOVE TO DREAM™ has made the decision to remove the travel slot across the SWADDLE UP™ product range. The travel slot was always intended for use in strollers – not for use in car seats, as it is not safe to swaddle your child in any way while using a car seat. We take safety very seriously, and as we’ve been made aware that a number of parents unknowingly use the travel slot in an unsafe manner, we have made the decision to remove it completely from the SWADDLE UP™ products to prevent any confusion. If you have any questions regarding this, please reach out to consumer care team at: email@example.com.
Our SWADDLE UP™ and SWADDLE UP 50/50™ are both certified and approved by the Hip Dysplasia Institute. Your baby's natural, safe sleep position is with their legs splayed in a frog-like position. The SWADDLE UP™ allows your baby to sleep in this position without restriction.
Yes, this is actually the best time to start. If your baby weighs between 6.5-12 lbs or 3-6kg at birth, as most babies do, please choose the SWADDLE UP™ in size Small.
If your baby is smaller & weighs between 4.5-6 lbs or 2-3.2kg at birth please choose the SWADDLE UP™ in size X Small.
No, it is not recommended to use a blanket in a crib, instead add extra layers underneath your SWADDLE UP™.
It's recommended that you follow First Candle guidelines in relation to using blankets in a crib. Do not put anything soft, loose or fluffy in your baby's sleep space. This includes pillows, blankets, comforters, soft or pillow-like bumpers, stuffed animals and other soft items. Use a sleep sack or other type sleeper instead of blankets to keep your baby warm and safe.
It is not recommended to use a sleeping bag over a wrap or swaddle.
Overheating has been linked to SIDS so it is very important to ensure your baby does not overheat.
The SWADDLE UP™ has been designed to eliminate multiple layers of wrapping.
The table below provides you with guidelines* around how to dress your baby based on the room temperature.
Please note: It is really important that you take into account all external factors when determining how to dress your baby, including the type of clothing that the baby has on, the babies general health and well being, the temperature of the babies bedroom and if this may change throughout the night or day. All of these factors may vary in the same way as it does for adults.
The table provided should be used as a guide only & the caregiver needs to use their own discretion when dressing their baby for sleep time.
Irrespective of which swaddling method you use, you must stop swaddling your baby as soon as he or she starts to show signs of being able to roll over independently. At this time, you must transition your baby out of swaddling into 'arms free' sleeping.
Your baby's arms should not be restricted when they are able to roll over - this advice is the same for any form of swaddling you may be using. Around this time, you baby's startle reflex should have diminished.
The SWADDLE UP 50/50™ is a great way to prepare your baby for the transition from being swaddled to 'arms free' independent sleep.
Every baby is different- some only take a couple of days to transition; some may take a little longer. It can be helpful to try starting your baby’s transition during his or her naps. Or perhaps try waiting until your baby is asleep before removing a ‘wing’ from your Swaddle UP 50/50 for the first time.
My baby used SWADDLE UP™. Should I buy the SWADDLE UPTM TRANSITION SUIT or SWADDLE UPTM TRANSITION BAG?
You can choose either! The SWADDLE UPTM TRANSITION SUIT is a '5-in-1' transition suit and has a lot of extra value. It’s a Swaddle Suit, Transition Suit, Sleep Suit, Play Suit and Travel Suit all in ONE. It’s the most versatile transition suit you can buy today.
My baby was swaddled arms down - which transition product should I buy?
You can try either! The SWADDLE UPTM TRANSITION BAG (previously called SWADDLE UPTM 50/50), is a '3-in-1', converting from Swaddle to Transition Bag to Sleep Bag once both wings are off.
The SWADDLE UPTM TRANSITION SUIT is a '5-in-1' solution that can be used as a Swaddle Suit, Transition Suit, Sleep Suit, Play Suit and Travel Suit all in ONE.
What's the easiest way to transition my baby?
If your baby has not shown signs of rolling yet, you can simply allow them to sleep in the SWADDLE UPTM TRANSITION SUIT until they show signs of trying to roll. Once they show signs of trying to roll over, you must stop swaddling your baby and transition them. Start with one ARMS UPTM wing and one SELF-SOOTHING™ SLEEVE on (cuff folded over). After several nights of your baby settling into this routine, remove the ARMS UPTM wing and start bedtime off with both SELF-SOOTHING™ SLEEVES zipped on (cuffs folded over). Once your baby has settled into a routine, you can open the cuffs for true arms-free sleep. Some babies transition in a few nights, others can take a few weeks. The SWADDLE UPTM TRANSITION SUIT with SELF-SOOTHING™ SLEEVES is especially helpful for any baby who is having a harder time going from being swaddled to arms-free sleep.
Can I use the SWADDLE UPTM TRANSITION SUIT if my baby has been swaddled with arms down?
Absolutely. The SWADDLE UPTM TRANSITION SUIT was specially created to help all babies transition to arms-free sleep easily, whether they have been swaddled with arms up or arms down. As a '5-in-1' transition suit, it has been designed to be the most versatile transition suit available today.
Why do the SELF-SOOTHINGTM SLEEVES seem too short? Is this correct?
The SELF-SOOTHINGTM SLEEVES have been specially designed to be slightly short for your baby's arms so that when the cuffs are folded over and they try to straighten their arms completely, they feel the edges of the fabric and can push against it. This provides sensory input and a feeling of safety and comfort while still allowing them to self-soothe safely without scratching their delicate skin.
I already have a SWADDLE UPTM TRANSITION BAG (previously called SWADDLE UPTM 50/50) - do the SWADDLE UPTM TRANSITION SUIT sleeves fit the SWADDLE UPTM TRANSITION BAG?
Unfortunately, they do not. Due to the differences in the ergonomic design of the two products, the sleeves are not interchangeable.
