The sheer and cool way to transition your baby from swaddling from the swaddling gurus at Love to Dream.
Making the move from the secure feeling of being swaddled to sleeping with arms free can be upsetting for some babies… not to mention their parents!
The Swaddle UP™ 50/50 helps your baby to gradually adjust to the sleeping un-swaddled. Simply unzip one ‘wing’, wait a few nights for your baby to adjust to the sensation of sleeping with one arm released, & then remove the second wing. Your baby is now transitioned!
- Made from 0.2 TOG fabric - 30% lighter than the ‘50/50’ Original
- Converts to a snug sleep bag for longer-term use
- Genius twin-zipper for easy nappy changes
- Hip-healthy design allows the recommended flexion for hips & legs
The Swaddle UP ’50/50’ is the no cry solution, which helps your baby, adjust to full blown freedom slowly. No matter how you have been swaddling your baby either with arms up, down or across their chest the 50/50 can help your baby transition out of swaddling and into a sleeping bag.
The time transition takes will differ for babies. Some will adjust to night sleep un-swaddled quicker, and others will find the days easier. The beauty of the 50:50 is you can easily add the wings back on if needed.
The LITE 50:50 is approx. 30% lighter weight fabric than the original 50:50.
WHY THE LOVE TO SWADDLE UP 50/50 IS SAFER*?
Usually parents transition their babies out of swaddling by using a conventional wrap, they leave one arm out and then later leave the second arm out. There are potential dangers with using conventional wraps for transitioning as the blankets/bedding can unravel. Unravelling or loosening can pose a tangling, suffocation and choking hazard to the baby.
Providing the parent has used the right size the Love To Swaddle UP 50/50 has a snug fit and is ergonomically designed to fit the baby, and therefore reduces the risk of tangling, choking or suffocation.
HOW IS THE FIT OF THE LOVE TO SWADDLE UP 50/50 DIFFERENT TO THE LOVE TO SWADDLE UP ORIGINAL(previously called Wrap Me Up)?
The top half of the 50/50 is the same as the ORIGINAL but the bottom half is slightly wider which helps the baby get used to not being so snugly wrapped. This also makes the 50/50 a great option for babies with hip issues or a cast.
The bottom half is reminiscent to a conventional sleeping bag. As you transition the bub by taking one wing off at a time they slowly and smoothly end up in a Summer weight sleeping bag.
HOW DO I USE THE SWADDLE UP 50/50?
Transition your baby in three easy steps
1. Use your 50/50 just like the Swaddle UP ORIGINAL (2 wings attached)
2. When your baby is ready to transition remove one wing. One arm is free and one arm is still swaddled.
3. When you feel your baby is ready for the next phase its time to let the other arm loose! Simply remove the wing and now your baby has graduated to a soft comfy sleeping bag!
