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. U.S. Patent No. 8,943,625, and additional patents pending

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 5 out of 5 by from I love the lightweight breathable fabric! My little munchkin has a history of breaking free of every swaddle we've ever used and as a result, we let her go swaddle free for a while. We came across this sweet little swaddle and think that she may have just met her match. She's been sleeping without getting out of the swaddle and it's been lovely not having to unwrap her just to change her diapers. I'd definitely recommend it to new moms with magical babies like my own. She loves it and so do her parents!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this swaddle I absolutely love this swaddle. The mesh is so breathable and lightweight - perfect for my summer baby! Our baby is also Houdini and the arm flaps keep her arms in place. I actually swaddle her arms straight down, but when she tries to escape the flaps catch her. :) I've tried so many swaddles and love this one. I bought the original (elephant) swaddle and I love it too, but it is smaller and quite snug on our baby, I don't think it will last long.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great material We loved our first Ergobaby Swaddler - the original in the elephant print- and were excited to have another one as the summer months heat up. The material is a great weight for summer and has a bit more stretch, which was ideal. The only downfall is the length of the hip position flap. It's too short for our little one who isn't really "tall." Unfortunately, we won't be able to us this as long as we had hoped and it doesn't come in the larger size.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing This is a great idea but poorly executed. The material was far too stretchy to keep my baby's arms still, resulting in her being quite fussy and unhappy. I knew after about 5 minutes that it wasn't going to work and immediately sent it back. Very disappointing considering I own two Ergo carriers and love them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is great, my daughter acutally starts smiling when I put her in it. She seems comforatable and cool in it. The only thing is, she is now 3 months and can easliy break out of it. I wish it came in bigger sizes to choose from. Im not sure how much longer I will be able to use this with her.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well made but too large I expected this swaddler to be much smaller so that I could use it for my newborn to 4 months. After that I don't usually swaddle anymore. This swaddler would not even fit my baby until she is ready to stop being swaddled. It is very well made, but just not for us. I plan on sending it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!!!! No arms escaping!! :-) I got this product when baby was 3weeks old now she is 6 weeks old. Gotta say I love it. I like how it's light weight so baby doesn't get too hot and how easy it is to use. I have an other swaddler from summer infant the SwaddleMe that I have used since she was a week old. It was ok but taking it completely off to change a diaper then putting it back on was a hassle. the Velcro is really loud it would scare my baby so she would really wake up and now that she's older she keeps freeing her arms, which results in scratching her face or the reflex movement wakes her up defeating the purpose for me. What I love the most about ergo baby swaddler is that it doesn't have those problems because the arms are wrapped in, they can't get free and the removable leg pouch makes it easy to change diapers without having to take off the whole thing, so baby can go back to sleep faster. Another big difference that I like is that baby is snug but it's not too tight and she can move her arms and legs without getting free unlike my other swaddler. I'm really happy with the ergo swaddler.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome swaddle! This swaddle has been great for us. Previously we had been using a swaddle that was wrapped and tucked. It was hard for the baby to escape, but as the evening went on, she could loosen it and the fabric ended up by her face- not ideal. This swaddle is amazing at keeping baby's arms locked in place- it has truly been escape-proof for us. As a bonus, the baby stays swaddled during diaper changes, the legs just flop out of the bottom portion. There is definitely the height/weight restriction on this swaddle, and unfortunately I can tell that our baby is outgrowing it by length. I think she is actually just over the recommended length already, but we are still able to use with success. Also, the fabric is a nice breathable mesh type material. Our room has been chilly this winter, so I've been putting a fleece (escapable) swaddle over the top. I love that this would be lightweight for summer babies, and you have the option of leaving their legs unswaddled as well. Overall, this is a really great swaddle and the best one that we've tried yet in two babies worth of swaddling!
