    Default swaddling blankets

    Does anyone have any experience with swaddling blankets - I've never heard of them before but was looking for a suitable blanket for when this one is born and came across them by accident - they had really good reviews mostly saying how much better they slept because of them - just wondered if anyone had any experience with them?

    It all depends on the baby, really. E loved it and it comforted her and she did sleep better, but V hated it so we didn't use them this time.
    If baby is cooperative, I definitely recommend them though! I got the one we used on E in TK Maxx, but I'm pretty sure they're available in most places.

    Apparently they were really popular years ago but went out in the 70's. I was tempted to get one but have read that since they made a comeback there has been a rise in hip dysplasia

    I'd never seen them until I read this article on my local paper site:

    http://www.dailyecho.co.uk/news/dist..._hip_problems/

    It seems as long as the little one can bend enough then they're fine. I've since seen some very cute ones that looks more like pouches, they have plenty of room and look quite cosy. I don't know enough about them to have an opinion on them really..!

    I had a baby carrier when Josh was a baby, it was a lot of messing and you needed help to get it on, but it was really nice to carry him around. I think the slings that are around now are so much nicer and look a lot easier to use so I would say definitely try one, you could always sell on ebay if you can't get the hang of it

    I used a ringsling for baby wearing when Phoebe was younger. Was invaluble for about 6 months. Was able to breast feed her in it too which was handy. You can pick them up quite cheaply on ebay. I swaddled Phoebe as a baby ad she slept well but was told to stop by hv (worried about the hip issue mentioned above). When I stopped swaddling sleeping hell broke loose and she continues to be a bad sleeper. The Gro-bag sleeping bags helped a little but didnt help with the thrashing arms issues!

    Babasling!! Really easy to use and it worked an absolute dream for me when my little girl didn't want to be put down.

    Apparently I refused to sleep without it... My little cousin hated it. So although no experience, from what I've heard it sounds like it's down to the individual baby, but definitely worth a try and you'll know soon enough if they don't like it
