Certified by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute, our patented, award winning SWADDLE UP™ is a breakthrough swaddling solution to help your baby settle and establish a peaceful sleep routine, FROM DAY ONE™. Unlike traditional swaddles which keep a baby's arms by their side or across their chest, the natural ARMS UP™ design of SWADDLE UP™, allows your baby to safely bring their hands to their mouth for true SELF-SOOTHING™ which means more sleep for the whole family. Oh and did we mention that vs a traditional swaddle wrap it’s a whole lot faster and simpler to use, especially at 3 am.
The only swaddle with patented wings, that allows your baby to sleep in a more natural position with their arms UP and legs splayed. Arms UP gives your baby access to their hands for self soothing. Just being able to gently touch and rub their own face, or suck on their hands without restriction, is key to your baby self soothing and your baby self soothing means more sleep for everyone!
Why arms UP?
It is your baby’s natural sleep position that allows your baby 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 if they are able to self soothe. So self soothing equals more sleep for the whole family.
The Swaddle UP™ is the only zip up swaddle available that allows your baby to sleep in the arms UP position. The Swaddle UP™ requires no complicated wrapping, so everyone can swaddle right every time.

Tog stands for "Thermal Overall Grade", which is a unit of measurement used to calculate the thermal insulation of a product, usually in the textile industry. Our sleep garments are given a Tog rating according to the warmth they provide. Basically, the higher the Tog, the warmer the product. Note that a higher Tog rating doesn’t necessarily mean a thicker garment.
To help parents understand which Tog values are right for differing room temperatures, a set of guidelines has been established as per below.
The table provides you with guidelines* around how to dress your baby based on the room temperature.
0.2 Tog - ideal for room temperatures between 24°-27°C
1.0 Tog - ideal for room temperatures between 20°-24°C
2.5 Tog - ideal for room temperatures between 16°-20°C
3.5 Tog - ideal for room temperatures below 16°C
*The table is only a guide as all babies are different. The number of clothing layers may vary according to a baby's health, their physiology and the room temperature in the room. The caregiver must determine what is suitable.
Please Note: It is important to check your baby regularly to ensure that they are comfortable and that they do not overheat. All garments are INPAA approved, as well as certified to the relevant safety standards applicable to those particular garments (AS/NZS: 1249:2014, BS 8510:2009) "Our SWADDLE UP™ & SWADDLE UP™ TRANSITION BAG/SUIT are certified hip healthy by the "International Hip Dysplasia Institute". Their design allows hips & legs to move freely. Our LOVE TO DREAM SLEEP BAG™ and LOVE TO DREAM SLEEP SUIT™ are inherently hip healthy due to their extra wide shape & garment construction.
This was recommended to me by my cousin and boy has it made such a difference to my little 10 week olds sleep! He's always loved having his hands up by his face when sleeping but insists on scratching his face, poking out his eyes or getting startled and waking up. He can now happily self soothe in his swaddle and we have found his sleep has improved and is now sleeping longer over night (9 hours one night!). My plunket nurse commented on how good they were as well and said how babies seem to understand once they are zipped up that it's bed time and I couldn't agree more! The package came super quick and the price was cheaper than lots of other places too. Highly recommend this product and Winkalotts!
Our wee girl (4 weeks old) sleeps so well in her Love to Dream swaddle and the quilt weight is perfect as the weather gets a bit cooler. Very happy we tried this, everyone is getting better nights sleep now. Also the service and speed of delivery from Winkalotts is exceptional, will definitely buy from here again!
Already a fan on the L2D swaddles and wanted a higher tog one for winter. This is great, highly recommended. The image on the website was the old style with the stripes and the style which arrived was the new style. Didn't matter too much to me but others may be disappointed.
Our daughter has been in LTD swaddles from day 1. Loved this heavier tog for colder nights. We always purchase from Winkalotts as they have the most competitive prices backed in with fast delivery and fabulous customer service.
All my babies have lived these swaddles. These warm ones are a must have for winter babies.
