World's Best Swaddle...
« on: September 16, 2011, 01:11:24 AM »
Just wanted to share with all the other new parents as its helped us a lot!

An Aussie girl in town had one of these and was raving about it so I got one for my kid as well.

It's simply amazing.  He sleeps so well in it with his hands up, doesn't get out of it like with other swaddles, and there's even seatbelt access and a double zipper to change the baby without removing the swaddle.

The manufacturer website won't ship outside Australia: http://www.lovetodream.com.au/babySwaddle_original.htm

But this ebay seller will for just A$4.50 extra.  Total is A$43.40.  It just took 3 days to get it all the way from down under!
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Love-Me-Wrap-Swaddle-Baby-Wrap-Blue-Medium-6-8-5-kg-/250830164299?pt=AU_BABY_BEDDING&hash=item3a66a4914b#ht_2663wt_905

Yes, it's a fortune for what it is.  But if it'll make your newborn sleep even a little better and be a little calmer, isn't that worth US$44.50 shipped?

Now the better question...why don't they sell this thing in the US?

They're calmer and sleep better that way.  Plus it reduces SIDS and keeps them from scratching themselves. Cozy like the womb or s/t like that.

Have it.  But the woombie doesn't hold the hands up next to his head like this one does and has no seat belt insert.  Plus it's not nearly as cute and at about $30 with tax it's not exactly cheap either.

The Aussie version works wayyyy better.

Indeed! 
But that's the point.

They have them quite often for about 15$ on a site called mamabargains... for 15$ its pretty cheap and your right it doesnt keep their hands up- but not all babies like their hands up... and yes... start making them in china- go for it :) (good luck dealing with the chinese)

Until they 'forget' to send you all the boxes in the lift or by 'accident' send copies of your products to your competitor out the other door of the factory...

I'm trying to understand how the car seat's harness goes through if there's only one slot (or they only show show one but it goes through to the other side?). Thanks.
