Good wearable blanket, similar to Halo SleepSack
Summer Infant has a few swaddling blankets, and I’ll compare two of them, the ComfortMe and SwaddleMe, with the Halo Sleepsack. The price is comparable for all of them, but they have slightly different purposes.The Halo Sleepsack is rated 0-9 months, and it runs long enough to fit a large baby. However, it’s like a tank top on top with a sleeping bag on the bottom, and one zipper down the center front.In addition to the tank top top, the Summer Infant SwaddleMe Wrapsack has "arms" that velcro down to keep baby’s arms tucked in nicely. When the baby wants her arms out, you can wrap the blanket arms around her torso under her arms, so it’s wearable both ways.The Summer Infant ComfortMe does not have the tank top style top, but is more of a teeshirt style with batwing or flying squirrel arms, if that makes sense. This is for older babies that don’t care for swaddling as much anymore, but it’s before they can be put down with an actual blanket.Both the SwaddleMe and ComfortMe wearable blankets have a zipper on the bottom, which is much easier than the Halo Sleepsack, although if it’s a very messy diaper, you’re going to throw it in the wash anyway, so the zipper is moot. All three wearable blankets are good to use, especially to prevent chills with AC, etc., but the WrapSack seems the most convertible and all-around useful if you want to try one. Otherwise, they’re all useful at different times.
Works well if your baby likes to swaddle
So, our child is not really into being swaddled. I tried a range of ways to get him to like it and he doesn’t. That said, it is still helpful as a wearable blanket for him on chilly nights.I should note that I did swaddle him quite a few times and this makes it very easy to do, even for people that I think may not be completely used to being around babies.I very much appreciated that the material is not too heavy so baby is not sweating. It seems the right weight to keep baby snug and warm, but not risk overly hot.The zipper at the bottom is very helpful so that diaper changes can happen without taking baby completely out of everything.I think this print is great and a nice gender neutral option.I would buy one as a gift for a friend!
High quality sleep blanket.
We have been using this SwaddleMe sleep blanket on our newborn daughter, and it is a winner. It is easy to put on, and the bottom zipper means that diaper changes are easier also. The fabric is on the thinner side, so this is likely not ideal for cold nights. I didn’t think I would care for the bee design, but it’s cute and gender neutral. This blanket also gives you the option of keeping arms swaddled or loose.
Very soft, the zippered bottom better idea than reality
I really liked the material on the wrapsack blanket. I didn’t love the zipper on the bottom though, I felt like it made it a lot less cozy. I understand that in theory it would make diaper changes easier since you don’t have to remove it but I never really needed that function.
Super-cute print, not too heavy for warm days, keeps baby’s arms out or in
The bee print is cute and gender-neutral. This is a great warm-weather lead-up to the halo sleep sacks that we used in the winter with our baby.When our daughter was born, we were told that swaddling makes babies feel secure. However, we always struggled to figure out the swaddle technique with blankets. This WrapSack Blanket allows you to simply fold the "flaps" around the baby with velcro and you have the option of arms out or in. Easy-peasy, which is essential for sleep-deprived parents.Another reviewer noted that the packaging is too cheesy to give this as a gift—I disagree. It’s not like it will be stored in the packaging. Would buy more to give as gifts in the future.
cozy and soft
this comes in handy when your little one needs to feel safe and comfortable in a soft cocoon, the fabric was so soft with a cute pattern, and it worked so well at holding baby. This was easy to open to do diaper changes and the velcro wings held securely.
Versatile, cute, lightweight
I appreciate the versatility of this new design: some newborns only need swaddling for a very short time before they start breaking free, but you still want to use a sleep sack for warmth. This allows you to address both phases with one item (anything to streamline the baby goods). You could fasten regular swaddlers under the arms, but this hybrid design has more leg room than swaddlers, so it will be useful for a much longer period.The cotton knit is very lightweight, great for summer or for heated rooms in winter. I prefer to layer the baby clothes rather than use thick fleeces, so I think the lightweight material is an asset here.One star off for some awkwardness getting it on the baby: you have to insert baby from the top or bottom, as the swaddler is designed with solid fabric across the baby’s chest. The regular swaddlers from Summer Infant are open at the chest and have a pocket for the legs: easier to lay baby on top and slip their legs into the pocket. Regular sleep sacks unzip down the center from neck to toes. If the swaddler could fully open to lay baby on top and then secure, that would have been perfect.The pattern here is cute and gender neutral. With the frequent laundering that baby clothes take, the pastel pattern will still look ok as it fades.
Really wanted to like it. Great idea but needs less stretchy fabric.
i really really want to like this product. The color and design is adorable and gender neutral. The idea of the snaps on the shoulder straps is genius, however my little bugger can easily wiggle her arms right out of the swaddle because the fabric is so stretchy. You have to pull it very tight and still it’s too stretchy. Because you have to pull it tight, the velcro closures end up being at her back which can’t be very comfortable after awhile. I had ordered the large size first as she has grown out of the halo and other summer infant swaddle NB size. She wiggled out of the large so I bought this one hoping it was more snug. And yes, I am swaddling her correctly, it is not user error. Summer infant’s swaddleme adjustable infant wraps work great as well as Halo’s swaddles because the fabrics are tougher and less stretchy.
