US Patented Design
Already a market leader for its baby carriers, which are uniquely designed to cradle a baby in a natural sitting position while creating healthy hip positioning, Ergobaby has applied this principle to their Swaddler. The Ergobaby Swaddler is the only swaddler to feature a patented Healthy Hip Positioner, which helps keep baby's hips in the physician-recommended, ergonomically correct "frog-leg" position, allowing for healthy hip development.

Healthy Hip Development
The Ergobaby Swaddler is recognized as "hip healthy" by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute. Our swaddlers are comfortable, ergonomic, and safe for baby's hips. According to the International Hip Dysplasia Institute, "In order for swaddling to allow healthy hip development, the legs should be able to bend up and out at the hips. This position allows for natural development of the hip joints. The baby's legs should not be tightly wrapped straight down and pressed together. Swaddling infants with the hips and knees in an extended position may increase the risk of hip dysplasia and dislocation."

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great idea but doesn't work Ergobaby baby should just stick with their baby carriers. I originally bought the swaddle when I saw the video and thought it was great idea since my baby always tries to get his hands out of the swaddle and wakes up easily when changing diaper but unfortunatly it's a big dud. It needs stronger Velcro so that baby doesn't come out of the swaddle. My baby is within the weight limit yet the diaper part is small on him and since the Velcro isn't strong enough (as well because it's small) the diaper part doesn't work on him. Such a waste of money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! My son is 5 weeks old and has hated being swaddled since day one and is so squirmy! I love that this swaddler is easy to put on and still allows him to move his feet while giving the calming comfort of a tight swaddle in the body/arms. He sleeps like a champ and I really love the fabric (print included) as it keeps him warm but still breathes. I'd definitely recommend this product to moms with fussy babes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best swaddle I bought this for my daughter who wasn't a fan of being swaddled. Now, at 3 mos, she sleeps w her arms above her head. But as a baby baby it helped keep her asleep for longer than any other swaddle. We tried the summer infant, but they came undone easily and kept her arms by her side. I loved that the ergobaby crossed her arms across her front.. Which seemed much more comfortable. Very glad to have had this!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic Purchase! This item is amazing. My newborn wiggled out of all other swaddlers. The amazing arm pockets are what makes this swaddler an absolute must! I will continue to purchase all sizes as my little one grows; it allows her to sleep so much better and longer. The only downside is the fabric strip in the back of the swaddler. The seam of the bottom "sack" which is located on the middle of the baby's back is quite large and seems uncomfortable during the night. Other than that, highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleeping longer! We got home from the hospital and knew we could not swaddle as well as the nurses did, so we started researching swaddles. Our baby was an escape artist and could squirm his way out of any swaddle we tried. This one worked like a charm because of the amazing arm pockets! We love it and now our LO sleeps at least 4 hour increments, skmetines we get 5-6 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Longer, better sleep!! We've been using this swaddle for a little over a week and I can't say enough good stuff about it! My son was breaking out of the other swaddlers I was using, resulting in short broken sleep. The Ergo swaddlers is giving me 5 hour stretches as opposed to the 2-3 I was getting without it! The swaddle is super easy to use, even in the middle of the night. I love that I can do a diaper change without unswaddling my baby's arms - the bottom sack part pulls right over his legs for extra warmth without constricting movement in his legs or hips. My son is in the top range of the height requirement for the swaddle and the strap through his crotch was looking tight last night. I ended up using just the arm part of the swaddle and he still slept great. I'm so excited that I can extend how long we use this swaddler even though we may be outside the typical range for size! I highly recommend this swaddler - I wish it was available when I had my first!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product - slow shipping! I recently purchases the elephant swaddle from Ergo baby and I do really like it. My husband and I were tired of using regular swaddle blankets as my son could easily get his arms and hands out and once his hands were free he would wake himself up. The elephant swaddle works well because the velcro sides help make a tight swaddle secure and stay in place even when my son wiggles around in his sleep. The product is great quality, washes well, and my son settles easily onces swaddled in it. However it took quite awhile to recieve the product. Once I submitted my order It took a while to recieve an order comformation email but my credit card was charged - I then waited over a week and never recieved the shipping confirmation. I called customer service and they were very helpful and professional however she had to track down my order as it was never processed? I did recieve an email that nigby that my swaddle had shipped but it took another full week to recieve it. In the end my son and I are very happy with the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice design This swaddle is easy to use and keeps my daughter swaddle all night. The design help me change her diaper without waking her all the way. As she gets stronger and bigger she can move the swaddle below her shoulders. But it maybe time to get a bigger size. This is a newborn swaddle, not sure if it's in the details.
