My recommendation:

Sleepea, the 5-second swaddle


When your baby is screaming, the last thing you want to be doing is faffing around trying to fold a complicated bunch of fabric, second-guessing yourself and worrying if you got it right. 


The Sleepea Swaddle is a pre-made swaddle and is definitely the swaddle I’d recommend. It is Daddy proof, quick and easy, and you can put it on without even having to think. For exhausted new parents it is a HUGE must. 

It ticks all the boxes: breathable, soft organic cotton, two way zip (easier for changing nappies), extra Velcro for escape proof security, perfect for healthy hips and even side openings to release arms (handy when it comes to weaning time). 


I’ve tried so many different pre-made swaddles and this is by far the best. It’s designed by the baby sleep super hero and the king of all things ‘happy baby’, Dr Harvey Karp, (creator of Happiest Baby).  You can order your Sleepea Swaddles at


Who is Dr Karp?

Dr. Harvey Karp is an internationally renowned pediatrician, child development specialist and Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at the USC School of Medicine, and someone whose techniques I highly recommend.  Having been in pediatric practice for almost 30 years, Dr Karp has taught thousands of parents his insights for soothing colic, boosting infant sleep, reducing tantrums, promoting patience and making parents and children happy. 

The swaddle I like the best is designed by Dr Karp and, quite frankly, is brilliant!
