Best Swaddle for Self-Soothing: Love to Dream Swaddle UP
The Love to Dream Swaddle UP is often our top recommended swaddle for new parents. It is extremely easy to use, and launches Love to Dream’s 3-step approach from swaddling to indpendent sleep. The swaddle’s wings keep your baby’s arms up, allowing them to self-soothe more effectively from Day 1. Once your little one is ready to move on from swaddles, the Swaddle UP Transition Bag allows you to zip-off one (or both) wings, giving them the perfect transition without losing any sleep. They have organic and non-organic options, as well as a variety of patterns and colors.

ergoPouch is our go-to recommendation for families looking for that eco-friendly swaddle option. Their Cocoon Swaddle Bags are made with GOTS certified organic cotton as well as elastane, allowing baby to move freely but still restrict the startle reflex. Plus a quick zip of the arm flap, and your swaddle bag instantly becomes a wearable blanket. ergoPouch has an entire line of safe sleepwear that will hold up to the toughest little sleepers.

There is only one size ever needed with the Ollie Swaddle so you don’t have to worry about mixing up sizes or buying more and the flexible 2-way design allows you to safely transition baby from arms-in to arms –out. They are so beloved you must grab them when they’re in stock!
