While these worked for other mommies, I had something similar and DD HATED it. She didn't want to be confined anymore. It really depends on if you have a snuggle bug or a wiggle worm. I'll leave it from passed experience.

Leave it...dd wouldn't even stay bundled in the hospital. It was funny we all joked that she was saying "I have been confined for 37 weeks and your not keeping me that way now" lol the nurses yelled at me for undoing her to until I calmly said its my baby and I say she is fine like this lol

While my sons LOVED being wrapped up, this just makes ME claustraphobic! Leave it!

Probably leave it. If Caleb is like his mother, he'll have restless limbs when he sleeps and will hate being tucked in. I always kick everything off the bed and end up freezing in the middle of the night. If he likes the snug feeling, I'll just swaddle him in blankets

I think they look so cute wrapped up in these, so I'll take it. I actually already ordered this orange one when it was a deal of the day. Now I just hope she likes it!

Another item I had no idea existed. The list is endless.

If my baby likes to be bundled up then I would buy it.

I think I'll probably just wrap her in a swaddling blanket, so I'd leave it. I do like swaddled babies though... all bundled!

Leave it - I have a ton of different swaddling contraptions in my hand-me-down pile and this one doesn't look as good because you can't tighten it like the others. Both my babies weren't swaddling fans, but we'll see about this next one!

Leave it. I'll just swaddle in a blanket if this lil girl wants to be wrapped up. My son HATED being swaddled.

Leave it!! It also reminded me of a straight jacket! I have some swaddles but if babe really wants to, she can get out of a swaddle!

Leave it....agreed about the straight jacket. But I can see why other people would want to use it.

I've heard good things about these but it looks too confining to me. Landon has some that swaddle his arms in but his legs are much more free. If I remember right it's made by Halo and it was amazing when he was little.

Leave it. Id rather use the swaddle blankets. I like the ability to make it as loose or tight as baby likes it and to keep their hands from scratching themselves.

I like this style. Not the ties, I like the velcro ones but this was the first decent photo I could find..

It looks like a straight jacket. If LO wants swaddled I'll use blankets.

Leave it. If this one is anything like DD it won't like being bundled. We just used a few thin blankets when needed.
