Love to Dream Swaddle UP™ 50/50


The Swaddle UP™ 50/50 helps your baby to gradually adjust to sleeping unswaddled.  Simply unzip one ‘wing’, wait a few nights for your baby to adjust to the sensation of sleeping with one arm released, & then remove the second wing. Your baby is now transitioned!

Making the move from the secure feeling of being swaddled to sleeping with arms free can be upsetting for some babies… not to mention their parents!  But there is a way to preserve your sleep routine during the transition.

  • Converts to a snug sleep bag for longer-term use
  • Use with a Snugbud™ (additional) to help with the transition process
  • Genius twin-zipper for easy nappy changes
  • Hip-healthy design allows the recommended flexion for hips & legs

Why arms UP?

 It is your baby’s natural sleep position that access to their hands for self-soothing. Babies often use their hands to settle themselves to sleep, by sucking on their fingers or gently rubbing their cheeks. Medical research suggests that babies sleep better, & for longer, if they are able to self-soothe. So self-soothing = more sleep for the whole family.

Need more sleep? Swaddle UP! 

  • Snug fit makes your baby feel secure & helps to calm their natural startle reflex
  • Eliminates excess loose fabric in the cot
  • Wings prevent face-scratching
  • May reduce the risk of your baby accidentally rolling onto their tummy
  • Genius twin-zipper for easy nappy changes
  • Hip-healthy design allows the recommended flexion for hips & legs
  • Helps your baby to gradually adjust to sleeping unswaddled.  
  • Simply unzip one ‘wing’, wait a few nights for your baby to adjust to the sensation of sleeping with one arm released, & then remove the second wing. Your baby is now transitioned!

Great way to transition to non-swaddled sleep
Reviewed on 13 August 2017
We have used this for two babys now and swear it is the only way to transition a bub from being swaddled to not being swaddled to sleep. It was the perfect way to transition our bubs with one arm out/alternate arm out and eventually both arms out when he was ready to sleep unswaddled. Don't know what we would have done without it!
Perfect for when they start to roll

We bought the love to dream 50/50 swaddle for our son after previously using the originals with our daughter and then him. She started to roll at an early age so we knew we had to stop swaddling him even though he still loved the cosiness. After looking at our options I found these and thank goodness I did! We were able to remove one arm at a time over a few days without too much fuss having his arms out because he was still snuggled firmly around the body so it made the transition excellent! I wish I had known about these for our eldest. Great colours, easy to wash and perfect shape for their hip development!
Fantastic swaddle

I purchased this 50/50 swaddle for my son as we tried the love to dream but he hated having his hands in so I decided to try this one as you can just zip off the wings and have the baby's hands out. He is much more comfortable in this one. I also love the double zip, it makes changing him at night time so much easier as you don't need to take him out of the swaddle to change him you can just zip up from the bottom and pop his legs and bottom out. I also like the double zip as if he is feeling a little too warm I can just unzip a small part of the bottom to let some fresh air in.
Saved my sleep

My son always loved being wrapped and secured while sleeping, as he got bigger he was always to strong for normal wraps, and also continually rolling over on his belly. After visting the mother and baby expo i decided to purchase this swaddle. After a few days of use i unzipped one arm, a few days later i did the other side after that his startle reflex was gone i didn't have to worry about him getting him rolling and not being able to push him self up. Its also really soft material. I will buy all the sizes with my next bub.
A must have for helping bub sleep!

I used the Love to Dream Swaddle Up 50/50 once my baby was about 3 months old and had discovered her hands. I was using the original swaddles with wings for the first few months and thought this swaddle would be perfect for transitioning my daughter to sleeping with her arms out. Once bub discovered her hands I found the wings were becoming too wet and now that my baby's startle reflex had gone I decided it was time to remove the wings. Although I know you can transition them slowly one arm at a time I decided to remove both wings and bub continued to sleep well, if not better, now that she could fully self soothe by putting her fingers in her mouth. Now when bub wakes she often just sucks her fingers and goes back to sleep. The snug feeling of the swaddle definitely helps her sleep better as if I put her down for a nap without it I soon regret it! I love this swaddle and would highly recommend it to all parents.
Love Love Love!!!

This is the best swaddle I've EVER tried, and I've tried alot. Being a mum of four I have always wrapped my Babies and they are little Houdini's. Always got there arms out. Love to Dream swaddles are so soft and strechy. I will never try another wrap again. I love that their arms are in the up position as my babies didn't like their arms down, They liked to suck their hands.
Takes the challenge out of transition from swaddle to sleeping bag

My little miss loved the love to dream swaddle; as soon as we zipped her in she knew it was sleep time. I was worried about moving her out of it as she got close to rolling. This was the answer we needed and with patience and a slow transition we got her there without disrupting her sleep routine. And we got a lot of use out of it 'arm free' so a great value for money product.

Great for transitioning!

This swaddle is so versatile. My Bub hated having his arms wrapped down or across and would wriggle his arms out. These 50/50 swaddles help transition the baby from swaddling to sleeping without swaddling. You can take one arm out at a time so that they can get used to sleeping with their arms out. The quality of the swaddle is excellent and they wash well every time!!
Great sleep

Ever since being introduced to love to dream swaddles by my midwife they have given my son a great sleep every time. The 50/50 are great as I let his hands out for a short play and then zip them up for sleep. When he is ready the 50/50 will be a great help to transition him into a sleeping bag. Thankyou love to dream for your amazing products. :)
Great swaddle

I used the 50/50 for all 3 of my kids & it has been great. It allowed me to transition them to being arms free as fast or slow as they needed. Bub1 transitioned slowly over a month because he kept hitting his face & startling, Bub3 transitioned in a week because he started to roll. All 3 kids were wriggly babies that could escape from every other swaddle we owned & all 3 slept beautifully in the 50/50. It was soft, comfy & washed well. Great product!
Highly recommend

I was worried when my daughter started rolling and I had to start transitioning to having her arms out but this product made it so much easier transitioning one arm at a time. Great quality.
You will never buy a wrap again!

These swaddles saved my sanity! Bub loved to be swaddled (he still wouldn't sleep through the night) but the fact that he couldn't get out of the swaddle was peace of mind! The swaddle went on and he knew it was sleep time! And when he started rolling we took the wings off and he still had a sleeping bag!
LOVE Love to Dream Swaddle Up 50/50
Reviewed on 16 April 2017
I've always been a massive fan of the Love to Dream swaddles, so was super excited when they introduced the 50/50 to their range. My son loved being swaddled and this was the easiest way for me to do so, as I was hopeless at using wraps to swaddle him. I loved that when I was transiting him out of the swaddle I could do so by letting an arm out at a time. The fabric was super soft and looked so cute. I had the grey stripes that is great for both girls and boys. The arms were easy to remove as these are attached by zippers. They also was well, and don't go out of shape, like some wraps do. My son was also a hand sucker, so having his arms raised, he could still suck on his hand. This did result in the swaddle becoming a little wet, but I had a couple on hand to be able to wash them. This is a great gift to give to a mother to be.
The best swaddle ever!

I bought this swaddle when Bub outgrew their original one. This made it soo easy to transition from arms in to arms out with the added benefit of knowing Bub still warm. I highly recommend!
The best invention ever!

I bought the Love to Dream Swaddle Up 50/50 in preparation for transitioning my daughter from her swaddle to sleeping freely. I must say this helped us so much with a smooth transition as we were able to free one arm first for a while then make the full transition to having 2 free arms, but with the warmth and comfort of the swaddle still remaining. Great product and highly recommended.
