Choosing the right size product

Q: What size Swaddle UP™ or Swaddle UP 50/50™ should I buy? 

You should choose the correct size Swaddle UP™ or Swaddle UP 50/50™ based on their current weight, not their age or their length. 

In the Swaddle UP™ range there are four sizes available: X Small (suitable for 2-3.2-kg), Small (suitable for 3-6kg), Medium (suitable for 6-8.5kg), & Large (suitable for 8.5-11kg).
 
In the Swaddle UP 50/50™ range there are three sizes available: Medium (suitable for 6-8.5kg), Large (suitable for 8.5-11kg), & X Large (suitable for 11-14kg).

Q: My baby is growing so quickly. Can I just buy a bigger size Swaddle UP™ & let him or her grow into it?

As tempting as it might be to buy a bigger size, unfortunately the answer is no. It is very important that you always purchase the correct size Swaddle UP™ for your baby, based on their current weight. If you use a Swaddle UP™ that is too big for your baby the neckline could be too loose, which can potentially be dangerous.

Q: What size Inventa™ or Nuzzlin™ Sleep Bag should I buy? 

You should choose the correct size sleep bag based on your baby’s weight & age.

In the Inventa Sleep Bag™ range there are two sizes available: 4-12 months (suitable for 6-9.5kg) & 12-36 months (suitable for 9.5-14.5kg).

In the Nuzzlin Sleep Bag™ range there are three sizes available: 4-12 months (suitable for 6-9.5kg), 12-18 months (suitable for 9.5-11kg) & 18-36 months (suitable for 11-14.5kg).

Q: What is a TOG rating?

The TOG measurement, typically used in Europe, refers to the approximate warmth of the product by measuring the thermal insulation provided by its material. Basically the higher the TOG, the warmer the product.

TOG rating uses an ascending scale from cool & lightweight products at 0.2 TOG to warm & cozy products at 2.5 tog.

Check your baby regularly to ensure they do not overheat.

All about the Swaddle UP™

Q: How many Swaddle UPs™ or Swaddle UP 50/50s™ do I need?

We recommend that you purchase at least two Swaddle UPs™ or Swaddle UP 50/50s™ in the appropriate size. If you own two then one can be in the wash while your baby is wearing the other one. It might even be helpful to consider having a third on hand to use in case of emergencies!

Q: What material is the Swaddle UP™ made from?

The Swaddle UP™ is made from a single layer of cotton (93%) & elastane (7%) fabric & is highly breathable. 

Q: What material is the Swaddle UP™ Summer Lite made from?

The Swaddle UP™ Summer Lite is 30% lighter than the Original version of the Swaddle UP. It is perfect for those extra hot days & nights. The Swaddle UP™ Summer Lite is made from a finely woven, ultra-lite, single layer of cotton (97%) & elastane (3%) fabric that is highly breathable.

Q: What material is the Swaddle UP™ Organic made from?

The Swaddle UP™ Organic is made from 95% cotton Global Organic Textile Standard and 5% elastine fabric.

Q: What material is the Swaddle UP™ Winter Warm made from?

The Swaddle UP™ Winter Warm features 100% natural bamboo quilting on the front of the garment for extra warmth. The body layer of the garment is made from cotton (97%) & elastane (3%) fabric.

Q: What TOG rating is the Swaddle UP™range?

The Swaddle UP™ Original, Organic & 50/50 are equivalent to approximately 1.0 TOG.

The Swaddle UP™ Summer Lite is equivalent to approximately 0.2 TOG.

The Swaddle UP™ Winter Warm is equivalent to approximately 2.5 TOG.

Q: Is it unhygenic for my baby to suck their hands when they're covered in the Swaddle UP? 

The Swaddle UP™ is unique because it allows your baby access to his or her hands for self-soothing.  Some babies love to suck on their hands as they fall asleep- unfortunately this does mean that the ‘wings’ of the garment can get a little wet. 

Parents should wash any garment, swaddle or wrap after use if it is soiled. The same applies to the Love To Swaddle UP™. We recommend purchasing more than one so that you always have a clean Swaddle UP while one is in the wash.

Q: Can my baby wear the Swaddle UP™ in the capsule or car seat?

No, it is not recommend that babies are wrapped or swaddled in any way while in a car restraint.

Q: Is the Swaddle UP™ healthy for your baby’s hip development?

Our Swaddle UP™ and Swaddle UP 50/50™ are both certified and approved by the Hip Displaysia Institute. Your baby's natural, safe sleep position is with their legs splayed in a frog-like position. The Swaddle UP™ allows your baby to sleep in this position without restriction.

Using your Swaddle UP™

Q: Can my baby use the Love To Swaddle UP™ from birth?

Yes, this is actually the best time to start. If your baby weighs between 3-6kg at birth, as most babies do, please choose the Swaddle UP™ in size Small.

If your baby is smaller & weighs between 2-3.2kg at birth please choose the Swaddle UP™ in size X Small.

Q: Is it safe to use a blanket over the Swaddle UP™? 

We recommend that it is safest to avoid all loose blankets in the cot and instead add extra layers underneath your Swaddle UP™. Please refer to our guide on how to dress your baby. 

If you do choose to use a blanket it is crucial that you follow SIDs and KIDs guidelines in relation to using blankets in the cot:

It's recommended that you follow First Candle guidelines in relation to using blankets in a crib. Do not put anything soft, loose or fluffy in your baby's sleep space. This includes pillows, blankets, comforters, soft or pillow-like bumpers, stuffed animals and other soft items. Use a sleep sack or other type sleeper instead of blankets to keep your baby warm and safe.

Q: Is it safe to use a sleeping bag over the 'Swaddle UP'?

It is not recommended to use a sleeping bag over a wrap or swaddle.

Dressing your baby under the Swaddle UP™ 

Q: How should I dress my baby under the Love To Swaddle UP™? 

Overheating has been linked to SIDS so it is very important to ensure your baby does not overheat.

The Swaddle UP™ has been designed to eliminate multiple layers of wrapping.

The table below provides you with guidelines* around how to dress your baby based on the room temperature.

Please note: It is really important that you take into account all external factors when determining how to dress your baby, including the type of clothing that the baby has on, the babies general health and wellbeing, the temperature of the babies bedroom and if this may change throughout the night or day. All of these factors may vary in the same way as it does for adults.

The table provided should be used as a guide only & the carer needs to use their own discretion when dressing their baby for sleep time.

Transitioning your baby

Q: When should I stop swaddling my baby? 

Irrespective of which swaddling method you use, you must stop swaddling your baby as soon as he or she starts to show signs of being able to roll over independently. At this time, you must transition your baby out of swaddling into 'arms free' sleeping.

Your baby's arms should not be restricted when they are able to roll over - this advice is the same for any form of swaddling you may be using. Around this time, you baby's startle reflex should have diminished.

The Swaddle UP 50/50™ is a great way to prepare your baby for the transition from being swaddled to 'arms free' independent sleep.

Q: How long will it take to transition my baby?

Every baby is different- some only take a couple of days to transition; some may take a little longer. It can be helpful to try starting your baby’s transition during his or her day sleeps.  Or perhaps try waiting until your baby is asleep before removing a ‘wing’ from your Swaddle UP 50/50 for the first time.

Using your Love To Dream™ Sleep Bag

The Inventa™ 0.5 TOG and 1.0 TOG Sleep Bags are made from 100% cotton fabric.

The Inventa™ 2.5 TOG Sleep Bags are made from 100% cotton fabric with 100% natural bamboo filling. Bamboo textiles and fillings are naturally hypoallergenic, luxuriously soft, highly breathable and thermo-regulating.

Brilliant Products!
We've been using the Love To Dream products for a while, through each of the stages. We love the Inventa sleeping bags, and have used each of the different TOGs. The 1.0 TOG is a great all-rounder for the in between seasons. We love the travel slots, the press studs to adjust the length and the cooling vents. It looks like you guys are discontinuing the Inventas and replacing with the Nuzzlin sleeping bags in each of the TOGs. Please don't! The Inventa are much better with their extra details!

Amazing!
My son gets quite hot when he sleeps but then come early morning cold - very hard to keep his temperature comfortable. We love the option of the breathable zippers to help regulate the temperature. Not to mention he loves 'getting into his sleeping bag'! Thank you, our 3rd Love To Dream product we are 100% satisfied with!
