WHY YOU NEED IT
When your baby shows signs of beginning to roll, it's time to transition their arms out of a Stage 1 Swaddle to prevent any injury. Any change of routine can cause stress for both baby and parents, so this Five in One suit has has been designed to minimise disruption and help transition your baby get their arms out and about, one arm at a time. It's the perfect solution between play and sleep, and helps support your baby as it grows away from swaddling. Zip-off Love To Dream’s signature wings to convert it into a snug sleep suit, maintaining the secure feeling of being swaddled. Try arms in arms up swaddle, one arm in and one arm out, both arms out, both arms out with arm layers and feet uncovered or feet covered by in built foot socks (a good option for playtime).
Choose from TOGS 0.2 or 2.5.
Choose from two sizes Medium (6kg - 8.5kg) or Large (8.5kg - 11kg).
Okay, here’s the deal. Swaddling your baby for the first few months is where it’s at. The Love To Dream Sleep Suit is the ideal solution to help your baby feel cosy and warm, minimising their startle reflex and calming them into sleep. Love To Dream is your ‘hands up’ option. If your baby turns out to be a ‘hands down’ sleeper, head over to the options from Ergo Pouch. Once you’ve got that sorted, choose a tog. Togs are related to the weight of the material, which you’ll choose based on room temperature with eg. Tog 0.2 for a warmer room, Tog 1 being standard and Tog 2.5 being heavier, for a cooler room. If you go lighter in Tog choice, you can always add warmth with extra layers of clothing or tuck them in with a tight sheet.
Sleep bags are a good option versus muslin swaddling because while some people are amazing at it and the midwives make it look SO easy in hospital, most parents struggle at wrapping their baby in muslin, and a lot of babies always seem to escape from it. Love To Dream designs are foolproof - one zip. It’s a very clever design with two way zips for easy access to change a nappy in the middle of the night, button clasps at the arms for when it's time to transition your baby's arms out (when they show signs of starting to roll). The design allows the swaddle to be firm and tight, but also allows for your baby to have movement with their arms (it's not a straight jacket), but not so much movement to have their startle reflex wake them.
