Why arms UP? It is your baby’s natural sleep position that access to their hands for self-soothing. Babies often use their hands to settle themselves to sleep, by sucking on their fingers or gently rubbing their cheeks. Medical research suggests that babies sleep better, & for longer, if they are able to self-soothe.
So self-soothing = more sleep for the whole family. The Swaddle UP Organic is the gentle choice for your baby’s delicate skin.
When swaddling, Swaddle Up means your baby still has access to their hands. This can be a great solution for babies who ’hate being swaddled’ or for parents who prefer their baby to have their arms up.

Most importantly, Love to Dream Swaddle UP ensures your baby stays wrapped all night long! These amazing wraps are useful for babies as you are weaning them off swaddling too, as they get used to having more movement and access to their hands.
What makes Love to Swaddle UP different?
With hands naturally in the wing position babies can bring their hands to their mouth or gently touch their cheeks.

Feedback from parents
"Whatever swaddle we tried, our son always fought his way out of it because he wanted to suck his thumb. Finally we tried your swaddle and it worked like a dream! Thank you LOVE TO DREAM for helping my baby sleep better!"
Stephanie, mum of Jack, 6 weeks old
"My daughter used to hate it when I swaddled her, so by 3 weeks of age I stopped swaddling which led to major sleep deprivation for us as she would wake herself up all the time. Our friend gave us one of your wraps and she LOVED it. She really loved having her hands near her face. Elsie started waking much less at night and sleeping for longer stretches. Happy baby, happy parents."
Ron, dad of Elsie, 8 weeks old
"I absolutely love using this wrap. It’s safe and secure, fast and easy. I stopped worrying about my little boy getting out of and tied up in his wrap and could change him at night with little fuss.
Tandi, mum of Liel, 2.5 months old
"Love to Dream not only changed my babies sleep but also my own! When Henry was in the SWADDLE UP and woke for his night feed all I needed to do was pick him up and feed him! It was that simple. No re-wrapping necessary! I would just place Henry back into his cot and he would go straight back to sleep. I love the fabric and fit of the SWADDLE UP. It is so easy to use and best of all, Henry feels safe and cosy in it."
Emily, mum of Henry, 6 months old.
"With my first child I found myself constantly wrapping and re-wrapping him in those first unsettled months and often he would wake up in the middle of the night from an arm poking out or scratching his face. The "Swaddle Up" solved this problem with child number 2 and I found my daughter slept a lot sounder and my husband and I spent a lot less time wrapping and re-wrapping to keep those little arms secure"
Naomi, mum of Ayelet, 3 months old
