Love to Swaddle UP is the original and world’s first baby swaddle, that allows your baby to sleep with their arms up. This option is the LITE option for summer, which is 30% lighter weight than the original.
The lighter fabric is stretchier and thinner than the original fabric, so it doesn’t offer as much startle control. So it is generally recommended for babies with less startle control or where you really need the lighter weight fabric due to high temperatures.
When swaddling, Love to 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.
If your baby wants to suck her hands but still has a startle reflex, then Love to Swaddle Up can help keep her hands in the right place for self soothing.
Most importantly, your baby stays wrapped all night long!
Love to Swaddle Up LITE is useful for babies as you are weaning them off swaddling too, as they get used to having more movement and access to their hands.
Can be used in the baby capsule - buckle baby in then zip over the straps.
Super fast and easy to use.
93% organic cotton + 7% spandex
This wrap is much stretchier than the original Love to Swaddle Up (was called Wrap Me Up).

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. This can be useful for two main reasons: it helps the baby self soothe therefore settle better and babies learn about the world through hand to mouth actions even when they sleep. Therefore havingaccess to their mouth assists with development.
Ina Love to Swaddle UP baby is snugly swaddled, helping reduce startle reflex, but still has access to their hands and stays safely wrapped all night long.
The Love to Swaddle UP baby swaddle is the simple answer to safely wrapping your baby perfectly every time without needing to be really tight.
Please note also that the lighter fabric may develop small holes after a few months use if your baby constantly sucks or chews on their hands! This is not a fault, it just means your baby has loved their wrap to death! Imagine if an item of clothing was worn many times a day and all night for months on end, it too would develop some wear and tear.

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 ME BABY 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 loveusing 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. The built in seatbelt access was an extra bonus allowing my baby to sleep soundly whilst I moved him from place to place. Thank you....love you...love me baby!" Tandi, mum of Liel, 2.5 months old
"WRAP ME UP not only changed my babies sleep but also my own! When Henry was in the WRAP ME 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 WRAP MEUP. 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 rewrapping 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 "WRAP ME 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 rewrapping to keep those little arms secure" Naomi, mum of Ayelet, 3 months old
"Whatever swaddle we tried our son always fought his way out of it because wanted to suck his thumb. Finally we tried your swaddle and it worked like a dream! Thank you LOVE ME BABY for helping my baby sleep better!" Stephanie, mum of Jack, 6 weeks old

Our baby has been in his Love To Swaddle Up - Lite since 3 weeks old. All I can say is it is money well spent after countless nights of us failing at wrapping him & he loves his arms up so he can self sooth. The Lite version is perfect for summer both in Australia and when we were back in Auckland for a visit at the end of January. He has just outgrown the small size at 10 weeks and we have purchased the 50/50 with zip off arms in Medium so we can transition him to a sleeping bag when he is near growing out of them.
Make sure you buy at least three because if your baby has an accident while one is in the wash you'll be caught short.

My son absolutely loved being in the Miracle Wrap so I figured my daughter would too, however she soon made it clear that she didn't want her arms held down, she would fight against it trying to move her arms around all sleep time. This was the perfect solution, she loves being able to suck on her hands - but like other reviewers have said, you need more than one! Sucking on her hand through the material makes it dirty really quickly!

Easy to use and perfect for babies who don't like being restricted with their arms pinned to their sides. Have used it from 7 weeks old and it is the only swaddle our daughter will sleep in without any fuss. Plus she looks super cute asleep with her arms up in their natural baby resting position. My only advice is get more than 1!
By Natasha from Auckland on 10 June 2012
The lite is great for a very warm baby in the summer. I sucked at swaddinlg, and DS hated his arms being pinned to his side. This is the perfect, fast solution. You need two - one to wash and one to wear. These will change your life.
By Debbie from Auckland on 6 March 2012
My 2 week old baby would spend the first 10 minutes in bed fighting to get her arms out of any wrap i put her in, making her further and further away from relaxed sleep. I was given the original for my baby shower, but one wasn't enough. So i purchased 2 LITE for the summer. Having her arms up means she can self settle faster.

This is the perfect swaddle for our little girl. She was too hot in most wraps, and likes to sleep with her arms up, so this turned out to be the solution for us. So easy to put her in, and we can feed and change her in it at night. We started using this when she was about 5 weeks, and by 8 weeks she was sleeping through the night. Love it!
By Kelly from North Shore City on 26 January 2012
Our 10 week old has been swaddled for all sleeps and slept fairly well, but got disturbed by being held down to get into the miracle wrap and not that comfortable in the summer heat. First try of this wrap and she loved it, so comfortable and stretchy - she looks really cosy in it, and has been sleeping really well.
