You can create the same effect with a blanket and a SwaddleMe (cheaper too)
on December 9, 2015
My son outgrew his small SwaddleMe swaddles and could break out of blankets used to swaddle him, so I was looking for something that would keep him more secure. After reading a lot of positive reviews I bit the bullet and paid the price for the Miracle Blanket. While the innovative design of the double wraps (one to keep his arms secure and then the overall swaddle wrap) does keep your baby from breaking out, I did not like having to wrap the long blanket around and around my baby. When I would get up to feed him during the night the swaddle would loosen and if I didn't pull it tight again he could break out of it. It was hard to wrap the blanket around him and keep him asleep at the same time. I ended up returning the product and I found that the best solution for me was to order the larger SwaddleMe wraps and use a small thin blanket folded into a triangle in the SwaddleMe to wrap around my sons arms (just like the Miracle Blanket) then to swaddle him in the SwaddleMe. This used the same principle as the Miracle Blanket to keep his arms securely in the wrap, but I didn't have to wrap a long blanket around and around him because the velcro would keep the SwaddleMe secure. Way cheaper option and worked a lot better for me. I attached pictures of what I am describing (since it is kind of hard to describe accurately). My daughters dolly agreed kindly to help me illustrate!
